Captured: A Look Into the Peak 2 Peak Gallery

Sometimes when I describe what it’s like to live in Whistler I say that it’s like a mix between Las Vegas, Disneyland, and the North Pole. Obviously this isn’t really a fair assessment to any of the destinations except that all of them are rad, assuming the North Pole is where Santa really lives. At any rate, I just returned home from Vegas and, instead of unpacking and hitting my desk, I suited up the kids for the first day of Whistler Blackcomb’s Peak 2 Peak summer sightseeing season.

The Peak 2 Peak gondola is always a huge hit for my kids and I never get tired of being in the alpine. I’d also heard WB opened a catwalk overtop of the guts of the Peak 2 Peak called the Peak 2 Peak Gallery and inserted some tablets to describe the technology and engineering behind the world record Peak 2 Peak tram span. Anyways, we thought we’d make a day of checking it out. Fun.

If you’re visiting Whistler this summer, the Peak 2 Peak should not be missed; from hiking, trail running, the Via Ferrata, and winemakers’ dinners to warm evening vistas as good and better than anywhere in the world, Whistler’s alpine is the place to be in the summer. More info here and photos below.

Amazing alpine vistas from the PEAK 2 PEAK.


So don’t forget to bring your camera!


There’s also things to do, so make sure to dress warm!


And check out the PEAK 2 PEAK Gallery; a look into the technology and engineering that makes the massive span between Whistler and Blackcomb possible.


Take plenty of pictures of your kids, family, mates, or whoever. And if you’re using Instagram, hashtag them #WhistlerUnfiltered because that’s how we roll here in Whistler.
