Plans & Strategies

Sea to Sky Trail Master Plan

The Sea to Sky Trail Master Plan was finalized in 2009 by Cascade Environmental Resources Group.

The route from Squamish to Whistler is 90% complete, with 8 km remaining to construct. Travellers can choose to use Highway 99 (with extreme caution) if they wish to link the completed sections of trail.

The route from Whistler Village to D’Arcy is 60% complete, with a plan to finish the Whistler to Pemberton section in 2015 and on to D’Arcy by 2017.

Sea to Sky Corridor Recreation Trail Strategy

The Sea to Sky Corridor includes an extensive network of over 700 km of recreational trails.  The proximity of these trails to Sea to Sky communities offers residents and visitors countless social, economic and environmental benefits.  The Sea to Sky Corridor Recreation Trail Strategy is a provincial initiative which provides strategic direction for everyone working towards an authorized, sustainable and environmentally sound trail network. The strategy also offers management direction in addressing critical and immediate challenges of the network.

Pemberton and Area C Trails Master Plan

The Pemberton and SLRD Area C Trails Master Plan, adopted by the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District in 2009, includes a detailed overview and action plan for future trail development within the Village of Pemberton and Area C. The plan identifies recommended trail locations, specific to commuter routes or front country users (Valley Loop), as well as single track and alpine access trails. Each of the trails’ status is identified and mapped. The challenges to the continuation of particular routes and/or future expansion is also explored, along with plans for development if trails are affected by a number of circumstances.
