    This is a fairly new gondola that runs between the Whistler and Blackcomb ski mountains.
    Its 4.4 kms or 2.73 miles between the stations, takes 11 minutes and 1 cabin arrives every 49 seconds at each station.
    There are glassed bottom gondolas on the system and you can line up for these at designated places in the gondola building. There is a different line up area for the standard gondola's.
    The views are amazing over the ski fields and the mountains and also over the valley below are excellent.
    Its a very smooth ride and well worth taking.
    This is included in your mountain Epic One Pass / lift ticket.
    You can get a ticket for going up the mountain and crossing in the gondola for a touristy view even if you're not skiing or boarding. This was actually pretty popular when I was there as a lot of people come up to see the mountains.
    Its a feat of engineering that is well worth experiencing.

    While snowboarding in Whistler Blackcomb mountain, you have a few choices of gondolas to get to the middle of the mountain for the skiing areas.
    When looking at getting up to the mountain at the start of the morning, the line up for the gondolas can be huge. Its a good option but look at taking the combination of Fitzsimmons express to Garbonzo express, taking a quick ride down either side of the mountain and getting a chairlift up to where the gondola finishes. I did this on the first day and I would've beaten a lot of people to the top. Its a tip I read and it works. You can also get a first tracks pass and get up to the mountain early as well.
    Its a good ride and part of your lift ticket. It is just busy at the start of the day so look at maybe getting a combination of lifts and then use the gondolas a little later in the day. Still, well worth using when there.

    We have travelled between YVR and Whistler with Whistler Executive transport and will do again in the future. They offer a wonderful service, always on time with excellent drivers and very comfortable vehicles. Stopping for food or groceries is never a problem. On our last trip the driver Roman was the best anyone could ask for. Such a friendly man and an excellent ambassador for the region. He even took us to a lookout for photos, timing it perfectly so the sun was just setting on the peaks. Thanks again Roman!!!

    We discovered this private transfer service in 2022 and have consistently chosen them for our last three trips to Whistler. Their promptness, courtesy, safe driving, and spacious and comfortable vans have made each journey a pleasure.

    I highly recommend their services.

    Greg arrived absolutely on time … but more important, he created a smooth and safe atmosphere. I changed pick-up from airport to downtown … one call and everything was modified, thanks, Sarah. Great.

    YVR to Whistler Return
    Exceptional Service!!
    Booked Alpine North after a recommendation by our accommodation.
    Met by Anas in arrivals and had an easy drive up to Whistler in the dark, which we all slept through due to the long flight time. But Anas offered access to wifi which was appreciated. Easy pick up at the airport, with Alpines parking arrangements right out side the terminal!!!
    Picked up by Jon for a mid morning return at the end of our holiday. We had booked an hour stop over to walk to a waterfall en-route to Vancouver, but as the temperature was -20, Jon was really helpful with other ideas where to stop and enjoy the views (and slightly warmer temperatures). Ended up having a short stop at Shannon falls (less walking) and Jon then used the time to give us a impromptu tour along the Sea to Sky Highway and Stanley Park. A stop at Tantalus Lookout (?), Porteau Cove (saw seals), then Third beach in Stanley Park followed by a leisurely drive through the suburbs to the airport. Accommodated a couple of comfort breaks as well.
    Could not recommend Alpine North enough, Jon made what would normally be a standard airport transfer (one when everyones a bit sad to be leaving) into something much more memorable and feel like we gained an extra day to our holiday.
    So thank you all so much! It was appreciated.

    Unbelievably amazing service !!! I arrived on a group holiday with 12 of us at Vancouver airport and I had mistaking my booked the transport for a day later to Whistler. Incredibly the customer services rep called round other bus companies on a very busy night for more than 30 minutes to find me a bus. Eventually she found one through a competitor and sent the bus and paid them from my original booking !! Customer service and care beyond anything you could expect !! Saved our holiday with an amazing human touch !! Super grateful !! Not just a normal bus company !

    Make is 11 stars. Andrew from Whistle is incredible. My husband had a bike accident at 7pm on the hill. We called a few other taxi services but none could accommodate bikes at that time. Andrew answered our call, left his home where he was preparing dinner dor his family to come and help us get back to our hotel as my husband had a concussion. He was there in 5 mins..could not have asked for better aervice. He went well above and beyond to serve us as strangers. Whistle is the best!

    They pick you up directly from the airport and bring you straight to the door of your hotel

    The drivers are friendly and willing to help with any ask

    The shuttle has USB ports so you can charge your phone

    We took the shuttle when the roads were covered in snow and they drove carefully - we were very happy that we didn’t hire a car

    One last thing, for all kind of reasons we had to change our booking a few times - it was really easy to do and no additional charges were applied

    Next time I’m over I will certainly use them again

    Outstanding service! Punctual and received timely text notifications upon the driver's arrival. They exhibit excellent communication skills, promptly responding to emails. They fulfill their promises, and I booked a Cadillac Escalade, which was impeccably clean. The driver was courteous, ensuring a seamless driving experience from Vancouver to the airport.
