Peak 2 Peak Sky Cabins Cross Fitzsimmons Valley (21-Sep-08)

WHISTLER, BC, September 21, 2008 – On Friday, September 19, twelve PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Sky Cabins made the very first

On Friday, September 19, twelve PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Sky Cabins made the very first, epic journey across the 4.4km/2.73 mile span between Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains.  Doppelmayr employee Mathias Zudrell rode the carriage of the first gondola to perform visual checks of the gondola’s mechanisms as it travelled across the Fitzsimmons Valley. 

“Today was a hugely exciting day for everyone involved in the construction of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola,” says Barb Houghton, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Project Manager. “I am just so happy to see that first cabin come across safely after two years of planning and building.”

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 www.whistlerblackcomb.com. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will open in December.
