Peak to Peak: Building the World's Biggest Gondola
Watch January 16, 7:00pm
Duration: 45min
For more than a decade, the owners of Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort dreamt of tying their two mountains together. With the Vancouver 2010 Olympics approaching, there was no better time. Peak to Peak gives us a front-row seat on the race to build the highest, longest, and most technically challenging ski lift in the world. The gondola was an entirely new design and would have to span a wide, deep and notoriously windy valley. With reputations and millions of dollars on the line, this was no easy build. But to set records you've got to take risks.
