Whistler: Tallest Peak2Peak Gondola

Whistler is clearly getting cranked up for the Winter Olympics in 2010, including the build out of some radical new infrastructure.  The mountain is now claiming to have the tallest Peak2Peak gondola, measuring in at a quarter of a mile above ground at its greatest height, and with an unsupported span of 1.88 miles between peaks!  At 16 mph, it makes the passage in just 11 minutes… I am scared already…  This great achievement is well demonstrated by Red Bull in the above base-jumping video.  Boy… i love skiing, love Whistler, love the Longhorn (apres), but no thanks!
