On a clear day it wil be a beautiful trip. If you leave from downtown you will see the float plane activity in the harbour and the route heads due north, over my house, straight over the mountains. You could also take the bus on the other direction, south bound is best as you will be on the "water side" of the road, which will allow you to see both road and air. The bus also allows you to enjoy the view without concentrating on driving on the "wrong" side of the road.
I worked on the upgrade to the Sea to Sky road and the most scenic sections are south of Squamish.
Most things in Whistler do not require a car for access.
Either way enjoy and I hope you get good weather.
