Several days are needed to explore all the hiking trails in summer.
In summer, hiking trails open in stages as the snow melts - opening dates may vary according to the snow pack and weather conditions.Years were spent of planning and constructing the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola with its signature red gondolas.It takes approximately 25 minutes to ride the Whistler Gondola/open-air chairlifts up to the PEAK 2 PEAK, 20 minutes to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK each way and 25 minutes to return to the Village.If you are interested in dining, taking lots of photographs, going on a hike or viewing the gallery while on the mountains, be sure to give yourself more time - you can easily spend an entire day up among the peaks!No matter what season you visit Whistler, the alpine is an incredible place to visit.
Depending on the season you may see fresh and falling snow, alpine wildflowers and wildlife including bears, chipmunks, deer and marmots.
Note that the access points change with the seasons - in winter access for sightseers is by the enclosed Whistler Village Gondola only.
Your PEAK 2 PEAK 360 ticket includes access to the Whistler Village Gondola, any operating open-air chairlifts and the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola.
The record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola links Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains.
A feat of engineering, the gondola boasts the longest unsupported lift span in the world (3.024 kilometres or 1.88 miles).
You do not need to purchase separate passes for each.
