Peak to Peak at Whistler Blackcomb Opens

Whistler Blacomb is a conjunction of two mountains. Two brothers standing together, each offering their own road map to fun.

On Friday, the highly anticipated Peak 2 Peak Gondola opened at Whistler Blackcomb. Part of the festivities included a live webcast. The 2.7 mile ride links the two brothers/mountains at mid-station and eliminates having to return to the village to ski both mountains in one day. The gondolas have a clear bottom, but let’s not call it "glass bottom" while we’re all carrying poles!  Your Cliff Clavin stat on the new Peak 2 Peak: a 1.88-mile portion of the ride is unsupported by towers, making it the longest such stretch in the world.
