1) I would strongly suggest for you to carry a camera and sunscreen
2) Layers layers layers! Temperatures at the top vary greatly from those down at the village. Make sure you know what you're getting in to.
3) Buy your tickets online for better deals
4) I found the souvenirs were priced better at Roundhouse Lodge than Whistler village
The experience was hosted by Whistler Blackcomb but the views are entirely my own. I thank them for their valuable support!

Unfortunately, the gondola route between the mountains was closed on the day due to unexpected weather conditions. I am sure I will be back soon to try out the entire experience!

In the Fall of 2016, I had a chance to visit North America’s most popular ski destination - Whistler, BC. Having hosted the 2010 winter Olympics, Whistler offers a plethora of activities for every kind of adventurer but no trip to this much fabled place is complete without taking a ride on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola.
Joining Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, the world record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was built for sightseers, skiers and snowboarders alike. The ride affords its passengers spellbinding views of snow covered mountains and vast blue skies while also enabling them to travel seamlessly between the famous mountains.
The day I got a chance to ride the gondola was also the day Whistler received its first major dump of the year! Temperatures plunged to sub-zero levels and the landscapes became magical. Having lived in tropical countries for most of my life, these sights amazed me without bounds.
Here are a few highlights from my trip:
