The Wonder Reels Episode 5: The Crossing pays homage to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, which opened to the public for the first time four years ago today!

Linking the alpine of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is the biggest lift of its kind in North America and breaks three world records, including longest unsupported span of 3.024 kilometres, highest lift of its kind at 436 metres above the valley floor and completes the longest continuous lift system on the globe.

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.
