Whistler’s PEAK 2 PEAK 360 Experience

Peak 2 Peak Gondola Summer

Have you ever wanted to travel above the treetops from mountain to mountain? Well, the PEAK 2 PEAK 360 Experience has you covered this year. Come enjoy the incredible views and landscape of Whistler with summertime sightseeing, hiking, and alpine dining. There’s plenty of fun to be had in these mountains!

Whistler Blackcomb has been putting a lot of effort into maintaining and improving the PEAK 2 PEAK Experience and it really shows! With a bunch of new trails and additions, it’s sure to be another great summer on the peaks. Guests will be able to notice significant changes from last year, with new hiking trails, viewpoints, more food, events, and much more.

Ride up the chairlifts and gondolas to get access to trails that wind through a rocky landscape surrounded by jaw-dropping panoramas. Take in the mountain top scenery that’s dominated by ancient glaciers, alpine lakes and slopes full of wildflowers. At the peak of activity in the summer over 50km of trails are available for you to access. All these trails can be connected with the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola on Whistler and Blackcomb.

Not sure where to start? Take a look at these quick GoPro videos of a couple of the trails available to hike. Or you can check out Whistler Blackcomb Alpine Trails to learn more about other trails in the area.

Opened in 2008, the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola became a Guinness Record-breaking structure for being the longest unsupported lift span in the world with 4.4km of distance. The gondola moves surprising quick, only taking around 11 minutes from one side to the other. At the highest point you’ll be 436 meters above the ground over Fitzsimmons Creek. So the PEAK 2 PEAK isn’t just a fun time it’s astounding feat of engineering!

Take a look at the videos below to get a glimpse at how they built it all!
