Getting elevated above the mountains is quite possibly one of the best experiences to be had in the sea-to-sky region. The vast and rugged landscape is a beautiful thing witnessed on land, but from the air – it’s a whole other ball game.
We had the incredible opportunity to fly with our friend Chayse, who is a licensed pilot collecting hours for his commercial license (hit him up to go Flightseeing!) so we spent an hour cruising over our gorgeous mountain home, just three friends in a plane.
Passing by Black Tusk we could see tiny little people making their way to the summit (how awesome – those people made a serious effort to get there over the snow!) and we flew by like a bird in the sky, effortlessly dancing from peak to peak.
We sailed over Whistler village, and yet again I was fascinated by view from above, shedding a whole new unique perspective on the landscape. This place I’ve been privileged to call home for the past two years has such an artistic bird’s eye view.
Making our way from Whistler Village to the Pemberton glacier we had flown for only minutes into the mountains and we were quickly over top of completely desolate, rugged landscapes, only visible to people flying from above.
Heading back into Squamish, there are SO many waterfalls tucked away in nooks between mountains that lead to rivers both little and big. These intricate waterways uniquely connecting together all in perfect pattern, showcase just how perfectly nature creates it’s masterpiece.
If you have the chance, you must head into the sky for a flight-seeing tour. It will absolutely round out your entire mountain adventure experience.
