Skiers and riders have the opportunity to easily take advantage of 8,171 acres of terrain via the world's longest continuous lift system. The adventure for summer visitors includes spectacular views of glaciers and peaks as well as access to an expanded hiking trail network on both mountains.

The Peak2Peak is actually two diffent gondola rides. You take the first gondola up for about a 25 minute ride to a viewpoint. It stops about a third of the way up to let off any mountain bikers, and then continues up. And up. And up some more.....

For a southern girl, that alone might have been enough. Big mountain. SNOW in mid June?!

But then you transfer to the actual Peak2Peak gondola. Each gondola is big enough to hold 28 people, but we had ours to ourselves, and passed many empty gondolas. The Peak2Peak is vey literally strung between two mountains, with only a couple of towers on eithere end. There are no towers in the middle, and when you look down and realize how high you are, it is staggering. A small plane could easily fly under the suspended gondolas, with room to spare.

Unfortunately, all the trails were closed when we went up, since there was still so much snow on the ground, and the touted video theatre appeared to be closed for renovations as well. But who cares? Even with the cloud cover, the wind ensured there were still views moving in and out of eyesight. btw, the gondolas are very smooth and stable, and we didn't feel any sway, even when we moved around to take photos and just goggle at the height and views.

If you are in Whistler, you simply must do this. Book your tickets online and they will give you two days for the price of one. We are crossing our fingers that the weather will be clear tomorrow and we'll give it another crack.

Not the cheapest ride but fantastic views for all. You start to realize this is not a cheap service to run or maintain. Not to be missed.

The views are outstanding - not cheap though.
Easy to be on and off gondolas on top of Whistler mountain and then walking to the peak to peak gondola.

Definately do this. What a GREAT way to get to the other mountain. Views are spectatular...no waiting time and its a very smotth ride across. Ended up spending morning on Blackcomb and afternoon on whistler quite a few times just as an excuse to use the peak to peak.

The mountains are so beautiful! You can wait for a glass bottom gondola if you want. We saw a black bear underneath us! Loved it!
