    Itinerary

    At the top of the gondola, the guide will outfit you with a harness and helmet. The group then hikes for 30-45 minutes across the base of the glacier. There is a small scrambling section before we clip into the safety cables and begin climbing up. Step and grab onto the rungs to climb up. At halfway up, we stop for water, snacks and photos. Then we continue climbing up the peak of Whistler Mountain. In July and August we then take the Peak Chair down and hike back to the office to return the gear.

    It is a separate expense but I believe you can purchase at the same time through the company. We didn’t because we had a discount we were able to use for the peak to peak. If purchased separately though you do have to make... More
