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.

the peak 2 peak experience NOT YOUR AVERAGE GONDOLA RIDE At 436m/1,427 ft above the valley floor, the PEAK 2 PEAK is the world’s highest lift of its kind and a marvel of engineering linking Blackcomb Gondola to the Village Gondola in one continuous lift system.
If you're afraid of heights, I recommend skipping Peak 2 Peak. The regular gondola going up whistler was manageable, but this almost gave me an anxiety attack. 1/4 into the ride, you'll be greeted with a sudden drop so that the gondola line can slack a little and not put too much stress on the 3 steel wires.

The Peak 2 Peak gondola is an amazing achievement of engineering, particularly the world record free span between towers - nearly two miles long. It is truly stunning. It is truly stunning. For the price of your ticket you can ride aboard the Peak 2 Peak as many times as you want for that day.

Jan 09, 2021 · Riding the Peak 2 Peak gondola was the highlight of our trip to Whistler this summer (August 2015). Accessible from Whistler Village, the gondola ride is the closest you'll ever get to being a bird. The 360-degree views are phenomenal and breathtaking.
