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 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.

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.

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?

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

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.
