    Next stage in our journey is to cross to nearby Blackcomb Mountain (2,440m) where the ski runs are extremely difficult. This lift was constructed in 2007-8 and holds a number of world records for a lift of this kind:-
    - longest unsupported (free) span (3.024km)
    - highest lift above the valley floor (436m)
    - longest continuous lift system (4.4km)
    There is 1 cabin every 49 seconds.
    Fitzsimmons Creek can be clearly seen on the valley floor as we go back. The forests of Whistler/Blackcomb support 60+ black bears.
