A $250,000 reward is now being offered for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for vandalizing the Sea to Sky Gondola on two separate occasions.

The most recent act of vandalism occurred on Sept. 14 when the cable on the tourist attraction was cut for a second time.

The attraction’s operators estimate between 25 to 30 cars were damaged and will need to be replaced.

Someone could have been easily hurt or killed when the cables were cut, said Squamish RCMP, adding that the perpetrator needs to be turned in before someone is injured.

RCMP are also hoping to get dashcam footage from the area.

This is the second act of vandalism at the popular tourist attraction. The gondola was cut down for the first time on Aug. 10, 2019.

That shut the attraction down for six months and cost millions of dollars to fix.

It remains unclear why someone targeted the popular attraction.
