Peak 2 Peak Gondola
In the old days, you couldn't really ski both mountains on the same day. You had to pick one or the other. That was just the reality of the landscape. With the vastness of the mountains, there was simply not enough time to ski both. The travel time between the two would eat up most of your day. But the Peak 2 Peak gondola, a two-mile, 11-minute horizontal journey that joins the two mountains, made that choice between the two mountains unnecessary. This amazing gondola can move 4,100 people per hour from mountain to mountain. If you are the adventurous type, be sure to check out the cabins with a glass bottom. You'll have a view unlike any other you've experienced.
