The proposed Cascade Skyline Gondola Project (formally known as Bridal Falls Gondola Project) is a new world-class British Columbia eco and cultural tourism attraction and local adventure recreation playground, located in the heart of the majestic Fraser Valley and Canadian Cascades mountain range, adjacent to stunning Bridal Veil Falls and the Trans Canada Highway.
Cascade Skyline Gondola
The Cascade Skyline Gondola Project
Accessible to a wide range of abilities, mobilities and interests with unique human-powered experiences on offer, Cascade Skyline Gondola is committed to green, clean, and sustainable year-round healthful enjoyment for all guests.
Picture your arrival at the Cascade Skyline Gondola base complex, set within park – like grounds and green spaces with a bistro café, gift shop, walking trails, local arts and crafts, events plaza, wedding chapel and more to experience and explore.
The base area will also feature the proposed Sto’lo Cultural and Interpretive Centre that will showcase the history, sacred stories, culture and artifacts of the area’s First Nations, on whose traditional lands the Cascade Skyline Gondola attraction is set
Imagine the state of the art, electric 8 passenger 2 stage gondola ride whisking you over 1200 metres skyward in 15 minutes to the dramatic Summit day lodge/restaurant/theatre and extensive viewing decks showcasing all of the beautiful Fraser Valley scenery below, and the panoramic scenescapes of the Cascade and Coast mountain peaks all around.
From the day lodge and viewing decks, branching out in all directions, is an extensive network of walking, hiking, cultural interpretive, biking, and backcountry skiing trails, offering outstanding adventures on your own terms – long or short, big or small – as you desire, with the mountains and forests at the centre of your nature based experience.
The Master Plan
The masterplanning and economic impact studies are completed. Environmental, geo-tech, and traffic flow studies are soon to be. A core feature of site planning for the project is the protection and regeneration of vast amounts of currently “brownfield” and clear-cut watershed lands to a much more sustainable and functional natural state and habitat.
A very experienced BC development team is leading this project and stakeholder and rightsholder partnerships are in place or in process. The Cheam First Nation is an equity partner in the project which is a cornerstone of their economic development strategy. The project is now going through the regulatory process with approval anticipated by mid 2021 and opening in the spring of 2023.
