Peak 2 Peak Gondola in Whistler holds the Guinness Book of World Record for the longest and highest lift. It connects the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains and provides an unparalleled perspective of British Columbia’s rooftop and incomparable views of towering volcanic peaks, coastal rain forests, and ancient glaciers.
The record-breaking Peak 2 Peak gondola joins Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in only 11 scenic minutes. It is the longest unsupported lift span in the world at 3.024 kilometers (1.88 miles), it’s also the highest lift of its kind at 415 meters / 1,361 feet. There are plenty of alpine adventures and options for summer hiking in the Blackcomb Mountain but we were happy just playing in the snow. It reminded us of our trip to Top of Europe at Jungfraujoch. Here are a few photos from our day in the mountains.
