The Legacy of the 2010 Winter Games
In February 2010, the world's attention was on Whistler, Host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. All three of Whistler's Winter Games competition venues are ready to explore. Visit the Vancouver 2010 Information Centre in Whistler Village and take a seat in a real bobsled or pose on the podium for a "gold medal" photo op.
On December 12, 2008, the dream to link Whistler and Blackcomb mountains becomes a reality with the grand opening of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. The world-record breaking gondola is the first lift of its kind in North America and is destined to become Canada's newest tourism icon. During the winter, skiers and riders will enjoy infinite opportunities to experience the side-by-side mountains. In the summer, the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will bring sightseers and hikers into the high alpine to experience breathtaking scenic views of Garibaldi Provincial Park. Spanning 2.73 miles in total distance from mountain to mountain, the Doppelmayr 3S tri-cable gondola boasts the world's longest unsupported span of 1.88 miles, as well as the world's highest lift of its kind at 1,427 feet above the valley floor.
Welcome to the Whistler Blackcomb Experience
When Whistler Mountain opened in February of 1966, few people understood the impact the resort would eventually have on the North American snow scene. How could they? No one had ever attempted anything on such a large scale before. Today, Whistler Blackcomb virtually defines the big-mountain resort scene with the highest vertical, biggest acreage, most glaciers, best glades, a renowned terrain park and, arguably, the world's best mountain bike park. The longest winter season in North America in combination with summer glacier skiing and riding, alpine sightseeing and hiking, and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park make Whistler Blackcomb a year round, world class resort destination.Read Less
