One of the longest and highest gondolas in the world, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola provides incredible sightseeing opportunities between Whistler’s mountains.
Peak 2 Peak Gondola and 360 Experience
Whistler is known for its two mountains, which combine to form the Whistler-Blackcomb Ski Resort. Both of the mountains have a gondola that climbs up to the top, and connecting the two of them is the special Peak 2 Peak Gondola.
Peak 2 Peak is one of the most unique gondolas not only in Canada, but in the entire world. It’s well over 400 metres above the ground, the highest elevation of any gondola of its kind. It’s also nearly 4.5 km long. Despite having some high-speed cable cars it still takes over ten minutes to reach the other side!
Peak 2 Peak is usually open from May until October and is part of the Whistler 360 Experience which also includes the Peak Express Chair up Whistler Mountain that leads to the Cloudraker Skybridge.
