Whistler Blackcomb Embarks On Peak 2 Peak Gondola Canadian Tour (12-Oct-08)

WHISTLER, BC, October 10, 2008 – Whistler Blackcomb’s PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour won’t quite stretch from “sea to shining sea,”

Whistler Blackcomb’s PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour won’t quite stretch from “sea to shining sea,” it will take a Sky Cabin from Toronto to Winnipeg, to Vancouver, and then home to Whistler; hitting every city and town in between, in just over two weeks.

The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Sky Cabin embarks on its epic Canadian adventure on Monday October 20, 2008 after being on display for the duration of the 2008 Toronto Ski, Snowboard & Travel Show.  The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour will explore Canada’s vast terrain with a GMC Yukon Hybrid, visiting Canada’s best-loved tourism icons.  The PEAK 2 PEAK team will document their experiences as they discover the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola’s place among Canada’s top tourism icons including Ontario’s CN Tower and Niagara Falls; Old Montreal, The Forks in Winnipeg, Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park; British Columbia’s famous wine country; and everything in between!

“The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will be a Canadian icon that will ensure we remain at the leading edge of tourism innovation,” says Michelle Leroux, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour Manager. “We are taking a Sky Cabin on the road and sharing the PEAK 2 PEAK story with Canadians while we discover our place among Canada’s storied tourism icons.  We’ll also share the Whistler spirit in major cities in partnership with Labatt as we throw epic PEAK 2 PEAK Party hosted by Kokanee Beer with Whistler’s quintessential ski town band The Hairfarmers!”

The entire tour will be documented online with updates from the road; daily videos capturing the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Team’s adventures and mishaps, and epic party sessions from the PEAK 2 PEAK Party Tour hosted by Kokanee Beer in select Canadian cities.  Check out www.whistlerblackcomb.com/peak2peak/tour for the entire schedule and don’t miss the excitement as the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour travels across Canada!

The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola Tour could not happen without sponsors Kokanee, TELUS, General Motors, Doppelmayr, Tourism BC and the Fairmont, with apparel provided by Quiksilver and Roxy.
