Squamish RCMP have conducted an investigation after security team Sea to Sky Gondola reported Monday morning that the line to the gondola had been cut and had crashed into the mountain.

RCMP received the call September 14th, 2020, at 4 a.m. from Sea to Sky Gondola security team.

RCMP said members attended immediately and began to assess information and contain the area. 

Squamish RCMP and the Sea to Sky General Investigation Section are working alongside partner agencies including West Vancouver Police Department, the Integrated Police Dog Services, and more will be called as the day goes on.  There is an extensive amount of resources in the area and we are asking everyone to stay out of the vicinity including climbing routes, hiking, and closed parking lots.

"We are only a few hours into this investigation and we ask the public to stay out of the area," says Sergeant Sascha Banks.

"The Sea to Sky Gondola is an integral part of this community and we very lucky no one was injured.  Someone in our area has seen something or has heard something and we are asking them to call us immediately with any information."
