New Gondola Cabins Will Improve Guest Experience And Increase Capacity By 12 Per Cent
WHISTLER, BC February 4, 2014 - Whistler Blackcomb is set to make the journey to the alpine a lot more enjoyable with the announcement of new eight passenger gondola cabins for their workhorse of a lift, the Whistler Village Gondola.
"The original cabins have been loading our guests onto Whistler Mountain since 1988," says Dave Brownlie, President and Chief Operating Officer at Whistler Blackcomb. "These sleek new cabins are set to dramatically improve the experience for skiers, snowboarders and sightseers. Eight passengers will be able to sit comfortably with their gear in outside racks, and the new configuration is set to improve capacity for the Whistler Village Gondola by 12 per cent through four additional cabins and greater loading efficiency."
