(1 x 1-hour)
Peak to Peak is an HD, high stakes one hour documentary originally for Discovery Channel, that will take you deep inside the struggles to build the world’s highest, longest, and most technically challenging ski lift.
For more than a decade the owners of the ski resort at Whistler, British Columbia dreamed of tying their two mountain peaks together. Now, the race is on to do it on time and on budget. In less than a year, the Peak to Peak Gondola must be completed in time to carry passengers to the upcoming Winter Olympics.
And this is no easy build. The Gondola is an entirely new design and this is the first attempt at spanning the wide, deep and notoriously windy valley. Reputations, millions of dollars and lives are on the line.
The Peak to Peak production team was granted full access to all aspects of the build – capturing events as they unfolded, witnessing success and failure along the way. The program will give viewers a front row seat in one of the biggest engineering challenges ever undertaken.
