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.
