The Wonder Reels: Episode 5 - The Crossing

What happens when a single man becomes the keeper of a world-record breaker? Switchback Entertainment documents the story of the caretaker of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola: Wayne Wiltse, Lift Maintenance Manager, Whistler Blackcomb.
Spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is a 4.4 kilometre/2.7 mile, eleven-minute journey now recognized globally as a tourism icon of epic proportions.
Since its opening in 2008, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola has attracted tourists from all over the globe who want to experience its breath-taking views and revel in its world-record breaking engineering. The Canadian Tourism Commission has introduced the Signature Experience Collection to promote once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences found across Canada, and Whistler's own PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola has made the list.



Whistler Blackcomb has been named the No. 1 overall ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI Magazine. The 26th annual readers' poll ranks the top 60 North America ski resorts in SKI Magazine's Resort Guide, hitting newsstands on October 16. The survey of 20,000 SKI readers is the longest running and most comprehensive survey of its kind in the winter sports industry.
Along with being named the nº. 1 overall resort, Whistler Blackcomb ranked highly in many other individual categories, including: nº 1 overall in Terrain Variety, nº 2 overall in Service, Lodging, Apreski, Off Hill Activities, and Digital Presence.
Whistler Blackcomb also placed in the top five resorts for Challenge of Terrain, Lifts, On-Mountain Food, Dining, Scenery, Terrain Parks, and Overall Guest Satisfaction.
