Whistler Peak

Whistler's E ticket ride, do you remember them, is the gondola ride from Whistler Peak to Blackcomb Peak. In winter it allows transit between ski runs on two adjacent peaks.

This is going to be fun.
Interesting

The E ticket rid.
Our destination, 2.7 miles away

Hard core skiers
There are two gondolas with transparent floors. We took one for our return trip. Midway we are 1,427 feet above Fitzsimmons Creek. It would be interesting if the entire floor was clear plastic .

Interested in the engineering details. click here

Whistler Mountain and Whistler Village are named for the whistling calls made by marmots that inhabit the alpine regions.
