Peak 2 Peak Gondola Sky Cabins To Cross Span On Friday, September 19 (18-Sep-08)

WHISTLER, BC, September 18, 2008 – As early as 8 a.m. on Friday

As early as 8 a.m. on Friday, September 19, twelve PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Sky Cabins will make the very first, epic journey across the 4.4km/2.73 mile span between Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains. With the official opening day of December 12, 2008 announced this milestone is all the more exciting.

“To finally have Sky Cabins move from one mountain to the other really crystallizes what we have accomplished here through two summers of construction,” says Rick Temple, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Construction Manager. “It is going to be an awesome sight for the entire PEAK 2 PEAK team, our employees and for the whole community of Whistler.”

Whistler Blackcomb’s PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will officially open to the public December 12, 2008. This engineering marvel is set to become a new Canadian tourism icon, and will forever revolutionize the way visitors experience this all-season resort.

Construction progress of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is captured daily via webcams, and weekly via photography and construction blogs on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola microsite at The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will open in December.
