Marvel at the breath-taking natural landscapes of British Columbia while riding the Peak 2 Peak Gondola cable car. Admire this engineering masterpiece at a viewing gallery, hike across alpine trails, spot mountain wildlife and dine at mountaintop restaurants. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola travels above Fitzsimmons Creek between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. It holds two Guinness World Records, one of which being its vertigo-inducing highest point of 1,427-feet (436-meters).
Step aboard one of the modern cable cars for an 11-minute ride between the two mountains. Gaze out at the panoramic views of alpine villages, cedar forests, lakes and towering peaks. Peer down at skiers and snowboarders traversing ski runs and at hikers and mountain bikers exploring trails. Wait for one of the silver glass-bottom gondolas for the best views of the valley below.
Disembark at the mountains to visit viewpoints and superb photography vantage points. Find a range of restaurants, which overlook the valley, have alfresco dining areas and feature live entertainment. Hike some of over 31 miles (50 kilometers) of trails that pass huge glaciers, perfect-blue lakes and fields of colorful wildflowers. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as bears and deer.
Don’t miss the chance to see the Peak 2 Peak Viewing Gallery, located on Whistler Mountain. Walk on an elevated glass walkway and get a closer look at the gondola’s record-breaking construction. Watch videos that showcase the gondola’s evolution and its impressive feats.
The Peak 2 Peak Gondola is part of Whistler Blackcomb ski resort. It has terminals on Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. Get to the terminals by riding the Whistler Village Gondola or taking the chairlifts that lead to Blackcomb Mountain.
The gondola is open daily, except for periods of maintenance, when it opens on weekends only. Hiking trails open progressively during the summer months, as the snow disappears. Check the weather conditions before visiting and dress accordingly. Complete opening hours, admission fees and discount details are available on the official website of Whistler Blackcomb ski resort.
