This past winter, Whistler Blackcomb unveiled its new Blackcomb Gondola. Running from the Upper Village to the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain, the new gondola is the world’s first three-gondola connection—delivering passengers to the Peak 2 Peak Gondola—and is the first fully sheltered route up Blackcomb year-round. It rises more than 2 miles from bottom to top. The 10-person Doppelmayr lift carries 184 cabins and can transport 4,000 people per hour.
