Whistler to Vancouver Hwy 99 Sea to Sky Hwy (DH34) - Whistler / Gold Rush Trail

May 16, 2017

The southernmost section of the Sea to Sky highway is where you’ll find one of southern B.C.’s best and most scenic motorcycle roads. Unfortunately, it’s also where you’ll find five star golfing, skiing, rock climbing, as well as Vancouver’s most desirable suburb. Can you say traffic? Up to 20,000 cars travel this highway every day. And sometimes it seems they’re all in a line ahead of you, led by some petrified day-tripper in a Volvo for whom, "Slower Traffic, Please Use Pullouts," may as well be written in Swedish. Three people die each month on this notorious stretch of road—usually a result of some weekend warrior having a snooze in the oncoming lane. While the outrageously beautiful scenery on this DH is the stuff of travel posters, the real reason to ride the road lies in the excitingly engineered and smoothly paved curves which ess along its sheer oceanside cliffs. Want to split hairs? Better mountain views going north. Better water views going south. Bumper sticker viewing is excellent either way.
