The High Life

Your Shot member Heather West provides a rainy-day view from the Peak 2 Peak gondola, which spans 2.7 miles between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Peak in British Columbia. At its highest point, the Peak 2 Peak is suspended 1,427 feet above the valley floor, earning it a Guinness World Record in 2015 for being the world’s highest gondola lift.
