The Peak 2 Peak Gondola stretches over 4.4 kilometers, connecting the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Everyone can appreciate the marvel of this construction as they look up at the gap between the mountains from the valley floor. Visitors can board from the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler or from the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. This experience can be enjoyed year-round. This link is an accomplishment that has broken three world records!
There are only 2 glass bottom cabins out of the 28 cabins, and they are distinguished by the outer color being silver and the non-bottom cabins being red. An enclosed barrier protects the glass-bottom area. I waited in a separate line for the glass-bottomed cabin; it was worth the wait. I enjoyed an eagle’s view of the alpine environment, the beautiful tall trees, bubbling creeks and trails. All the seats in the cabin offer a 360-degree view of the glaciers and coastal mountain ranges. Be sure you give yourself enough time to enjoy the experience fully, to explore the trails, and to catch the gondola back to your destination.
During the ski season, I can see how this gondola reduces traffic congestion and cuts down the travel time of skiers and snowboarders. They will have convenient access to both mountains at the tips of their skis.
To sum up my adventure in one word: INNOVATIVE
