Resort Attractions

Whistler is especially proud of its PEAK 2 PEAK gondola which links its two mountains at altitude, even giving it its own website at The gondola opened for the 2008-9 season and broke three world records. Thanks to incredible engineering it offers the highest single unsupported span between lift towers for a lift of this kind at just over 3km (3.024km/1.88miles to be exact).

It is also the highest lift of its kind at 435m (1,427 feet) above sea level and some gondola cabins have a glass floor so you can look straight down and get the full effect. Thirdly the lifts create the longest continual lift system in the world, as guests can ride up Whistler Mountain Gondola then cross the valley to Blackcomb Mountain on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and ride back down the Solar Coaster and Wizard chairs.

It’s quite easy to come to Whistler just to shop and indeed a lot of non-skiers do just that. There are around 200 shops to choose from, again rivalling any other ski resort in North America or any other continent, and there’s a full range of town and destination resort options that extend well beyond offering ‘holiday essentials’ to a big range of gift shops, clothing stores and again most other shops you can think of. Most are in the pedestrian village so you can browse at your leisure.

There are half a dozen art galleries in Whistler, all of course selling art as well as displaying it. The Black Tusk Gallery (108-4293 Mountain Square, +1 (604) 905 5540; is located in Gallery Row at the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa near the Whistler Gondola Base and displays Northwest Coast Native Art from First Nations artists.
