In the Summer, you can ride Whistler’s Guinness World Record breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. You get a 360 degree view of your surroundings and you get to experience two side-by-side mountains, 50+ km of hiking and walking trails at the height of summer, mind-melting alpine vistas, free and custom guided tours, viewpoints in every direction, and an ever changing timeline of seasonal highlights that makes no two visits the same.
We came when it was a bit foggy, but we didn’t want to miss this chance to go on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola since we don’t come up here too often. It costs $51.95 per adult.
There are 2 types of gondola’s available – one with the glass bottom for those who are seeking a bit of a thrill. We opted for the Express Loading, which has a shorter waiting time and it’s a bit better for those who are scared of heights.
The gondola is full enclosed, so you are safe and secure all the time.
There are windows all around you, so make sure you sit by the windows to get the rest pictures and views.
It’s pretty fun seeing the ground below and how high we were really up in the sky. It is 4.4 km in length and takes about 11 minutes to cross.
Even in the Summer, you will want to pack warmer clothes or a jacket since it gets colder at higher elevations.
Once you are up, you can enjoy some wild animals roaming around, hiking trails, and dining.
