When it’s raining in the valley why not head up the Sea to Sky Gondola and relax in the restaurant at the peak.

On some days you can see the valley below the clouds or, if you’re lucky, even emerge into glorious sunshine.


Don’t let a little rain put you off enjoying the trails. Those rainy days can be some of the most fun, getting in the shelter of the trees and away from the crowds.

Fall is the best time to go riding as the trails are in peak condition, not too dry and packed down for the perfect ride. With fewer crowds you can enjoy having the beautiful scenery all to yourself.
