  • my son's hockey team went up the Chief and came down with Gondla. It took 2 hrs and 45 min. It was chalenging, but it worth it! the gondla ride was amaging to over see ocean and mountains. 
  • It's a very steep hike up to the top but the views are worth it! The Chief is a huge granite dome that overlooks Squamish and the rewards for the hike is one of the best viewing platforms imaginable! 
  • Highly visible from many parts of the local area, this mighty monolith provides a spectacular sight. Great walking trails nearby
