Highway 99, or the Sea to Sky, was closed in both directions north of Whistler, B.C., on Saturday afternoon after a multi-vehicle crash that sent two people to hospital.

In an alert just before 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, officials said the highway had been shut down about 10 kilometres north of the resort municipality near Heliport Road.

The crash itself happened about one kilometre north of Whistler, between Heliport Road and Riverside Drive. Emergency crews were sent to the scene and DriveBC warned to expect “major delays.”

BC Emergency Health Services told CTV News two ground ambulances and one air ambulance responded to the crash, and paramedics took two people to hospital.

Just before 4 p.m., DriveBC posted an update saying the highway was fully reopen.

CTV News has reached out to the Whistler RCMP for more information and will update this story if a response is received.
