Lifts/cable cars Whistler Blackcomb

There are almost exclusively modern chairlifts at the Whistler Blackcomb ski resort. On Blackcomb Mountain, there is even a chairlift with weather protectors, which is pretty rare in Canada. The special highlight is the Peak 2 Peak gondola (3S) that connects the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Modern 8-person and 6-person gondolas lead up to the ski resort from the base. Up at the glacier, there are two tow lifts.
