Whistler Blackcomb unveiled their prized Peak 2 Peak gondola almost one year ago, and now, they're getting ready to debut a special documentary profiling the incredible feat of design and engineering, and the people behind the vision.
Dubbed On the Shoulders of Giants , the documentary tells the story of many visionaries, athletes and innovators like Hugh Smythe, Eric Pehota, Jim McConkey and Mike Douglas who have inspired Whistler Blackcomb to push forward with such progressive projects.
"The original motive for this film was to document the building of the Peak 2 Peak Gondola," Stuart Rempel, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said in a press release. "As filming progressed and interviews were captured it became clear, the way Whistler inspires people to constantly do things bigger and better was really the story we needed to tell . On the Shoulders of Giants celebrates our dreamers and our innovators while ultimately telling the story of how the Peak 2 Peak Gondola came to be."
On the Shoulders of Giants will make its world premiere online on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at noon at www.whistlerblackcomb.com .
