What is the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

Building the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was a major feat of engineering. On completion, the lift broke world records as the longest, continuous lift system on the globe and the highest gondola of its kind, at 436 metres above the valley floor. When combined with a ride on the Whistler Village Gondola and new Blackcomb Gondola, it creates a continuous 13.5-kilometre loop from the bottom of Whistler Mountain, across the valley between both mountains, and down Blackcomb Mountain.

What is the PEAK 2 PEAK 360 Experience?

Sightseeing on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is a must do while in Whistler. A PEAK 2 PEAK Alpine Experience ticket allows you to visit Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in one day, on the way receiving a bird’s eye view of the forest and spectacular mountains, valleys and glaciers. A special silver glass-bottom gondola provides another unique perspective of the forest.

The 360 Experience is more than just spectacular views. Once on the mountain top there are other things to do: enjoy the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery , grab and go food options for the perfect alpine picnic and in the summer, alpine hiking trails.

Is the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola open year round?

While the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is open most of the year for winter and summer sightseeing, Be sure to check the operating times and hours when planning your visit as exact dates vary from season to season.

Where do I park for the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

You have two options. The best place to park to access the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is in the Whistler Village Day Lots 1 – 5, located a 5-10 minute walk from the base of Whistler Mountain.

How do I access the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

How long does it take to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

It is recommended that you give yourself at least 2 hours to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and return to the Village. It takes approximately 25 minutes to ride the Whistler Gondola/open-air chairlifts up to the PEAK 2 PEAK, 11 minutes to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK each way (22 minutes round trip) and 25 minutes to return to the Village. If you are interested in dining, taking lots of photographs, going on a hike or viewing the gallery while on the mountains, be sure to give yourself more time - you can easily spend an entire day up among the peaks! Several days are needed to explore all the hiking trails in summer.

What is the best time of year to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

No matter what season you visit Whistler, the alpine is an incredible place to visit. Depending on the season you may see fresh and falling snow, alpine wildflowers and wildlife including bears, chipmunks, deer and marmots. You can also watch skiers, snowboarders and mountain bikers ride the mountains from the comfort of the cabin. Be sure to check the operating times and hours when planning your visit as these vary from season to season, and note the times when the gondola does close briefly for scheduled maintenance. In summer, hiking trails open in stages as the snow melts - opening dates may vary according to the snow pack and weather conditions.

What is the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery?

Years were spent of planning and constructing the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola with its signature red gondolas. Learn more about the ground-breaking engineering behind the lift in the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery inside the terminal on Whistler Mountain. A raised glassed-in walkway enables visitors to view the machinery working and tablets show videos exploring the construction of the lift and Whistler’s ski history. The Viewing Gallery allows visitors to appreciate the true scale of the project, adding a whole new dimension to the Alpine Experience.

Will I need to wait in line?

Wait times for the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola vary and lines are usually longer on weekends and during holiday periods. Please allow yourself extra time to board the gondola.

Can I take my dog on the mountain?

Dogs are not permitted on Gondolas or any Whistler Blackcomb property, unless they are certified aid dogs or CARDA (Canadian Avalanche Rescue Dogs). There are however plenty of dog-friendly accommodations and activities in Whistler. See our pet-friendly Whistler guide for further information.

I have purchased my tickets online. Where do I pick up my tickets?

Tickets cannot be printed at home and must be picked up from WhistlerBlackcomb Guest Services in the Blackcomb Daylodge prior to boarding the gondola.

I have my tickets! What should I take with me?

As you are going from Whistler Village in the valley to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola in the alpine, weather conditions and temperatures can change. As a rule of thumb it is usually 5 to 10 degrees (Celcius) cooler on the mountain than in the village. Dress comfortably for the mountains - layers are recommended so you can adjust accordingly. If you plan to hike, other gear is recommended such as comfortable, sturdy shoes and water. If you have a face mask, guests are strongly encouraged to bring their own. Please note that to access the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola in winter time, you will need to walk through the snow - dress warmly and wear waterproof boots for comfort. There are grab and go food options, shops and washroom facilities on both mountains.

Will I need to wear a face covering?

Face coverings are required on gondolas and indoors, including restrooms, restaurants (while not eating or drinking), lodging properties, and retail and rental locations, in accordance with government mandates. Face coverings will not be required in outdoor spaces such as lift lines, chairlifts, and restaurant patios.

Will physical distancing be implemented on the gondolas?

No. Lifts and gondolas will be loaded at normal capacity, optimizing guest movement around the resort.

Will physical distancing be enforced indoors, or in outdoor spaces like lines and mazes?

Currently there are no public health orders in place mandating physical distancing indoors or on lifts or gondolas. Those orders will be continuously monitored as the pandemic evolves and all federal and local public health orders will be followed.

Do I need a vaccine to do the PEAK 2 PEAK 360 Experience?

No, a vaccination will not be required. Vaccines will not be required in outdoor spaces such lift lines, chairlifts, gondolas, outdoor restaurants, or in indoor spaces such as restrooms, lodging properties, and retail and rental locations. However, if you wish to access our restaurants, restaurant patios or bars, a BC Vaccine Card will be required for those 12 and older.

What qualifies as proof of vaccination for guests looking to visit restaurants, restaurant patios and bars this season?

Whistler Blackcomb is complying with COVID-19 health orders from the Provincial Health Authority. When entering a restaurant, restaurant patio or bar, guests will be asked to show their BC Vaccine Card, along with a piece of valid government photo ID. You can learn about the BC Vaccine Card, how to obtain yours and where it is required here.

For guests who forget their BC Vaccine Card or have not been vaccinated, they will not be permitted to enter our restaurants, restaurant patios or bars.

Will Whistler Blackcomb staff be required to be vaccinated?

Yes. We believe the COVID-19 vaccine is the way to end this pandemic, and the best way to keep our employees and guests safe. Vail Resorts will be requiring all employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19, effective Nov. 15, 2021. Employees will still be required to complete daily health screenings before coming onsite to work.
