c ommun i t y Technical Tour Provides Members a Unique Sea to Sky Experience

Local APEGBC branches like the Sea to Sky Branch organize regular technical tours of public and private facilities located in their communities. These tours provide opportunities for members to network while increasing their knowledge of local infrastructure. Most recently, the Sea to Sky Branch visited the Sea to Sky Gondola Summit in Squamish. Squamish is home to many outstanding natural attractions, drawing visitors from all over the world; the Gondola links these attractions into one unique recreational experience. This past fall, the branch held its tour of the Sea to Sky Gondola Summit, led by Mamoud Bashi, P.Eng., Pierre Friele, P.Geo., and Trevor Dunn, General Manager and co-founder of the Sea to Sky Gondola. About 45 participants—including members, friends and families—gathered at the Gondola Base Camp, located on Highway 99

between Shannon Falls Provincial Park and the iconic Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. The tour started with a 15-minute gondola ride connecting the Base Camp to the Summit Lodge, set at 885 m above sea level. The ride provided sweeping views of the Howe Sound fjord, majestic coastal forest and surrounding mountains. The gondola cabins were designed and custom-made by Doppelmayr, a well-known Austrian manufacturer, with floor to ceiling glass windows offering unobstructed views of the surrounding natural attractions. Once at the gondola summit, presentations by Trevor Dunn and Pierre Friele enriched the tour, with Dunn sharing information about experiences and challenges during the gondola project construction phase, and Friele, President of Cordilleran Geoscience, talking about the quaternary geomorphology of the Squamish River and Howe Sound. Participants then enjoyed lunch in the Summit Lodge restaurant before exploring a wide array of outdoor experiences including interpretive walking trails, breath taking cantilevered viewing platforms, and the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge.
