About
This gondola lift offers a breathtaking scenic experience in the heart of Canada’s Coast Mountains. Suspended a record 1,430 feet above the valley floor, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola transports you over an almost two-mile-long span between Whistler and the Blackcomb Mountains year-round. During winter, you can ski across the 8,171 acres of terrain offered at Whistler Blackcomb Resort. In the summertime, you’ll have access to an expanded trail network on both mountains as you enjoy terrific views of the region’s glaciers and peaks. Glass floors add to the magic of the 11 minute ride up in the air. – Tripadvisor

    Amazing Views & Great Hikes
    Amazing views and great hikes. Only issue was figuring out where to get started. Went in July and you can only access from the Blackcomb Mtn gondola. We did Blackcomb Mtn gondola. Hiked at top for a few hours. Great hikes and then some wildlife. Then the peak to peak. Then the top of the world gondola to the suspension bridge. Awesome views. Wear good shoes and bring layers. Gets chilly at the top; even in July.

    Amazing
    Fabulous piece of engineering. For sightseers or hikers, the only way to get to Whistler - which means if it closes due weather, which I told it does OFTEN, there is no way of getting to Whistler and the suspension bridge. No refunds, so be warned. But if it is running, no line ups, and great views!

    Great
    Went up in the summer and had a great time! Went up Blackcomb then peak to peak to Whistler then up to the top of the world to walk the skybridge! Spent about 4 hrs on the mountains before coming down Whistler gondola straight into the Village.

    A must do in Whistler
    What an amazing must do experience. The views are amazing. Christine’s at Blackcomb is great for lunch. Then peak 2 peak to the top of the Whistler gondola where you can walk down a hill to the chair lifts to go to the sky bridge which is amazing for pictures and 360 degree views. The umbrella bar is also unique with fantastic views and a last sip before riding down to the village. This is a MUST DO !

    Incredible views
    Incredible views! Don't miss this experience. We went in summer and the view was phenomenal. It was expensive, but the panorama at the top was worth it. Great for kids as well. There's trails at the peaks, so you can spend time doing those as well. Tip 1: If you want to ride the glass-bottom gondola, take any gondola from the Blackcomb side. Then wait in the much shorter line on the Whistler side, especially first thing in the morning. It's shorter there because everyone had to come up the Blackcomb side to start. You can go back and forth as many times as you like. Tip 2: Food at either of the peaks is $$$. You can bring your own food and drink if you like. Tip 3: If you plan to do the Peak Express and Cloudraker, wear proper footwear, not Birks...

    Just WOW!!!
    We did the P2P Gondola on August 3 2023 and it was quite possibly the most unique and exhilarating thing we have ever done. There are no words to describe what you will see and feel up there. The best thing is that for one ticket price you can ride all day, as much as you like. If you only do one gondola ride in BC make it Peak to Peak.

    Excellent Views
    First time traveler to Whistler so I decided to try the Peak 2 Peak Gondola and was mesmerized by the scenic views. Had a great time enjoying the place with my camera. Prices are steep but worth it if you are in the area.

    Superb views - and first bear sighting!
    Can't fault this trip! Apart from seeing our first ever black bear, grazing on the lower slopes underneath our gondola, the views from the top are spectacular. A great introduction for us to British Columbia.

My family of four (me, wife, kids aged 7 and 4) took the Peak2Peak on a cloudy, drizzly weekday. The good news: there were no lines, we had the gondola all to ourselves on both trips we took and there were no crowds at the top of either mountain (in fact, we hardly ran into any people at all!). The bad news: most of the hiking trails were closed and the experience was quite expensive.
The Blackcomb Gondola right outside our hotel was closed due to a mechanical failure so we walked into the village and took the Whistler Village Gondola up soon after opening (10:00 AM). We had planned to do some hiking at the top but only one trail was open: the Spearhead Loop. It was a disappointing walk, less than 1 km with little to see other than a water reservoir and a backhoe shoveling dirt and snow. We took the Peak2Peak shortly after to see what Blackcomb had to offer; luckily a few more trails were open there (although many closed) and we had a nice, short, kid-friendly hike on the Alpine Loop (with Fitzsimmons Lookout Loop). The gondola ride itself was fantastic; even with cloudy/foggy conditions obscuring the view, we were delighted with what we could see.
I rated the experience 3/5 (Average) because it was really expensive: $200 for the family, and that's with my four year-old riding for free! At that price, they could have at least kept a few more trails open so that folks had something to do/explore at each peak. I highly recommend to all fellow travelers to plan their visit on a clear, sunny day if at all possible.

Price per person somewhat expensive, however if you have the time to spend at the top, the views and unique vantages make it worth it. While you can only ride UP from the village once on your day pass, you are allowed to ride across from Peak to Peak as many times as you are willing to line up for. Lines were short when we went (it was also very hot). Even though no additional lifts were open (extreme heat) there was still hours of hiking to do up the road to the top of Whistler, between the drifts of melting snow. We cooled off in, and drank from, clear streams of water from snow melt. Breathtakingly beautiful. I did find maps confusing for a first-timer, especially since there are SEVERAL inukshuks - so beware using one of them as your landmarks. One highlight was spotting a mother bear and her cub from the gondola on our decent.

Great experience.

The staff did an amazing job with the COVID restrictions and cleaning.

There is a bit of a wait due to the amount of gondolas in use but it was not an issue at all and a small price to pay to mitigate the contact with others.

The ride itself is smooth, quiet and beautiful. We did this trip a few times after purchasing a yearly pass. It was wonderful to go up the mountain, take the Peak to Peak and do some hiking then come back down for lunch.

Absolutely stunning. Wonderful staff.

We ended our first night by watching the YouTube documentary on how it was built. That was a neat experience.

The website makes it complicated to understand (in my opinion) so i will break it down i a form in which i wish someone broke it down for me. The Peak 2 Peak gondola travels between the two peaks of Blackcomb mountain and whistler mountain. You will need to take the gondolas that take you up to one of the mountains and the down the other. The final trip back down is 5pm in summer. There are trails at the tops of the mountains and restaurants and skiing and mountains biking. All three gondola rides are included in the ticket and each provides its own unique sights. Highly recommended, more so than the sea to sky gondola.

It is definitely a experience for tourist that are not used to mountain scenery. It may be expensive (approx $80/person), it is memorable and not a gouge as running any gondola's is a very expensive business. Took lots of pictures. Restaurant at top has good fast food and COVID-19 protocols followed. Don't go if it isn't a sunny day, and even in the summer when it's hot in the village, take a sweater or jacket because it can be very windy and cold at the top.

Seats around 25 people comfortably. Built 2008 ok believe. Best to board on clear days to see the beauty of the creek. Takes around 15 minutes and even in February there was no queuing.

Get the peak2peak from blackcomb and ski across to 7th heaven lift (take expressway to get there). Come down the Upper Panorama,Lower Cloud Nine, Subset Boulevard, lower gear jammer and Village Run to end any sunny day in perfect fashion. Simply stunning

Supposedly one of the cars is glass bottom. Cool but the best views are looking out of the huge windows

Buy tickets online, Ride up the Gondola on Blackcomb (17 mins approx). Stunning views. Up top, we took a 30 min stroll around the Alpha Loop as had young kids ages 9-5. A little bit of up and down the path, but amazing views. Must wear runners and bring a light sweater in summer. Then rode Peak to Peak (11 mins) which was great. Once at Whistler Mountain side, stop for a drink/light snacks and then enjoy the Gondola down (20-25 mins) where you can see the Mountain bikers ride the course. Good 2-2.5 hour activity for all ages. Go up early at 10 to avoid the line ups and rush.

If you want amazing views across both Whistler & blackcomb mountains & beyond, this is for you. Buy a sightseeing pass you can get right up to the top on one gondola, then do the peak to peak... we have done borh glass bottom & normal (always a long wait for glass bottom) your personal choice both give you amazing views.
You can also do the top of the mountain (suspension bridge) open gondola, not for small children & unless your skiing/snowboarding I'm not sure if you can in winter . Bit of a walk to it BUT Unbelievable views from the top. Not the best return if you're scared of heights & all open so keep personal possession safe.
Well worth doing & all included in price.

We travelled over on peak to peak & travelled back down the mountain on blackcombe gondola to upper village. Also a way to see down that mountain.

Best part we saw a mama bear 🐻 and her 2 cubs. Gorgeous sight.
Not cheap BUT a must do trip on a clear day.

On a Sunday. Beautiful fall day. Whistler lifts were closed so it was necessary to take the Blackcomb gondola up to the top to catch the Peak2Peak. Walked around the top of Blackcomb before taking the Peak2Peak to the Whistler Peak. There are two special gondolas on the Peak2Peak run that have a "glass bottom". It's only a small area of the floor, maybe 3ft square or slightly rectangular in the center of the floor surrounded by a metal railing that one has to stand by and look down. You cannot stand on it. Those two cabins are about 15 minutes apart on the line. There are about 15 other cabins on the run that have a regular floor. The line to get on the glass floor cabin is really long and they cram about 20 people in there so you cannot move around. There's no line to get on a regular cabin and those come every minute or so. No waiting. If you should choose to ride the regular style cabins, there's only a few people in it and you can walk around as you choose and look at the view from anywhere in the cabin. Honestly, the view in the glass bottom is not any better than the regular style cabins. Not worth waiting. Once you get to the Whistler Peak you can hike around and then have snack or lunch at the restaurant, take great pics and then ride the Peak2Peak back to Blackcomb and then take the little gondola back down to the North Village. The Peak2Peak only operated on the weekends and holiday Monday and will close on Oct 10th and with the Whistler lifts closed it's necessary to do a round trip. When the Whistler lifts are operating you can go from either Whistler or Blackcomb, up to the peak, take the Peak2Peak gondola to the other mtn and take a different lift back down. Personally I liked being on the Peak2Peak twice. No more $ to do it that way.

This gondola connects the tops of Whistler and Blackcomb, and is an engineering marvel. Two cars have glass bottoms and are definitely worth the extra wait. Inside the station there is a chart that shows which gondola cars have glass bottoms. Takes about 11 minutes to cross the Fitzsimmons Valley and the view is spectacular. A must for any visitor.
