Whistler Mountaineer® - Vancouver to Whistler
Depart from the North Vancouver Rail Station and pass under the Lions Gate Bridge. Enjoy the early morning views of downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park as the train hugs the scenic waterfront of West Vancouver's exclusive residential area. After passing through the Horseshoe Bay Tunnel, you’ll travel along the eastern shores of Howe Sound, with the British Columbia Coastal Mountains rising steeply to the right and stunning views of ocean and mountain to the left. As you near the town of Squamish, BC, look out for the spectacular cascade of Shannon Falls and the magnificent domed peak of Mount Garibaldi, rising 2,678 metres (8787 feet). Pass through the yards of the West Coast Rail Association, home of the Royal Hudson steam train, before climbing a steep grade through the Cheakamus Canyon, where the river below tumbles through a rugged gorge. Cross over the pinnacle of Brandywine Falls before arriving at Whistler, a year-round resort world-famous for skiing and outdoor activities, and the end of the day’s scenic rail tour.
