The cable that will be strung across the gap to join the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains has made its way up to the construction site and is currently being installed. More than 28 km of cable will span the gap between the peaks, and it’s expected that the stringing process will be completed by mid-September of this year.
While construction continues on Whistler Blackcomb’s Peak to Peak gondola, Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, B.C., has dedicated nearly $1 million towards making upgrades to their chairlifts and the process of cleaning up trails. The lift upgrades will be made primarily to Red’s Motherlode, Paradise and Red chairs to increase reliability. The process of cleaning up trails to open up more terrain was started in April by crews to help Red Mountain live up to its reputation of having some of the best tree-skiing on the planet.
