PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola

PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola

With the launch of the Peak 2 Peak Gondola in 2008, Whistler's multi award-winning mountain experience just got a whole lot bigger! The record-breaking gondola joins Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in only 11 scenic minutes. Boasting the longest unsupported lift span in the world at 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles), it's also the highest lift of its kind at 415 metres / 1,361 feet.
