Whistler Blackcomb Resort


Check the Sea-to-Sky Highway 99 Road Report updated by the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Highway conditions are provided by the Weather Network.

Sea-to-Sky Highway Web Cams: Courtesy of BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure:


October - April


To ensure everyone's safety, the West Vancouver Police and Sea-to-Sky Traffic Services are working together to patrol the highway, administering random tire checks at the Alice Lake turn off. If stopped at a checkpoint, drivers who haven't installed winter tires or have tire chains will be turned back.

Winter tires that meet the standards required on the Sea-to-Sky Highway are identified by a snowflake on a mountain symbol next to the M&S symbol on the tire sidewall. An M&S designation means the tire is rated by the manufacturer for use in mud and snow.

Vehicles without designated winter tires must carry chains and will be required to put them on at the checkpoint.
