THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD-BREAKING PEAK 2 PEAK GONDOLA


NOT YOUR AVERAGE GONDOLA RIDE

More than a gondola, the PEAK 2 PEAK is innovation on a different scale entirely. Spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is a 4.4-kilometre/2.7mile, 11-minute journey to infinite possibilities. By connecting the high alpine terrain of both mountains, it changes the way you ride Whistler Blackcomb. It allows you to transfer mountains and ride the best terrain on both in the same day. Ride the Peak of Whistler in the morning then 7th Heaven on Blackcomb in the afternoon.
