(1 x 1-hour)
Peak to Peak is a 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 a ski resort in Whistler, British Columbia, dreamed of tying their two mountain peaks together. Now, the race is on to do it on time and on budget: the Peak-to-Peak Gondola had to be completed in less than a year to carry passengers to the Winter Olympics.
The Gondola is an entirely new design, and this was the first attempt at spanning the wide, deep, and notoriously windy valley. Reputations, millions of dollars, and lives were on the line.
