New Whistler Gondola, originally uploaded by nickphotos.
I'm not sure if construction is on schedule but this year a new Whistler Gondola is expected to link Blackcomb and Whistler mountains. You can buy a dual mountain day-pass but Blackcomb and Whistler are pretty big mountains and skiing down from the peak of one and then riding up to the peak of the other can take a long time. The idea of the new Gondola is to cut down on cross-mountain trip-time. The new gondola is scheduled to open in December 2008.
This year Whistler and Blackcomb mountains open for the 2008-2009 ski season on November 27, 2008.
