Getting to Pemberton & district is simple, and by June 2009 the Sea to Sky Highway will have been upgraded by a massive, multi-million-dollar improvement project.

Currently, the highway is open and fully accessible with only the occasional short delay or pre-scheduled closure. Once the project is complete, the mountain highway will be straighter, have more passing lanes and enhanced monitoring for winter weather maintenance.
