Squamish is about a 45 minute drive north of Vancouver BC. We parked at the Shannon Falls park and walked about 600 meters to reach the gondola basecamp. (Parking at the basecamp is restricted to 3 hours, but at Shannon Falls you can park longer.) The Falls are the 3rd longest in BC, and with the spring run off they were amazing. The hike was through the remnants of an old growth forest, it was an easy hike. It cost about $40 each to ride the gondola. There is a discount if you purchase your tickets ahead of time, off of the internet.
The 360 view of snow capped mountains that surrounds you was so spectacular. Make sure you go on a clear day. in order to get the benefit of the most incredible view. At the top there are hiking trails, a suspension bridge, gift store and cafe.
