Peak 2 Peak Alpine Experience

4th June, 2013

The Peak 2 Peak Gondola is a breathtaking journey that creates limitless ways to explore Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Over four years after the Peak 2 Peak was first opened and it still amazes me that you can be transported from the peak of Whistler (7,156 ft; 2,181 m) to the top of Blackcomb (7,992 ft; 2,436 m) in a mere 11 minutes. This fantastic gondola ride offers stunning views of the Whistler area as well access to a network of alpine hiking and interpretive walking trails or simply stop by one of the on mountain restaurants for a cappuccino with a spectacular backdrop.

New this year, the Peak 2 Peak Gallery, offers an interactive look at the inner workings and mechanics of this engineering marvel, located in the Peak 2 Peak Gondola station atop Whistler Mountain. The gondola also breaks three world records:

  • Longest unsupported span of 3.024 kilometres
  • Highest lift of its kind at 436 metres above the valley floor
  • Completes the longest continuous lift system on the globe

The Peak 2 Peak Experience is an activity not to be missed on your next Whistler holiday. To take advantage of this great experience we now offer a Peak 2 Peak Package.
