whistler roundhouse view
View from external balcony of Whistler Roundhouse. The "Roundhouse" definitely isn't round, but it is the main amenities and service centre on Whistler mountain top. It is also the destination for the Whistler gondola which runs up from Whistler Village in the valley below. Travel time in the gondola from valley floor to the roundhouse is over 10 minutes. All told the vertical between the valley floor and the roundhouse is in excess of 1km of elevation.
