Not the new Peak to peak gondola but the regular one up blackcomb.
See the rest at http://www.whistlerquestion.com/article/20081216/WHISTLER01/312169887/1030/whistlerWhistler – A tower on the Excalibur Gondola, which carries skiers and snowboarders from Whistler Village up Blackcomb Mountain, collapsed on Tuesday afternoon, leaving at least four gondola cars down and prompting an emergency response from a variety of local agencies.
No injuries have yet been confirmed in the mishap, which occurred on Tuesday at around 2:25 p.m. An eyewitness who spoke on condition of anonymity, who was skiing to the base of Whistler Mountain when the gondola collapsed, said one gondola car was suspended above Fitzsimmons Creek while a second was perched on the corner of a bus shelter in the Gondola Transit Loop.
