Our fully trained and knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you during the smooth seven minute trip to the Upper Station located at 2277 metres (7472 ft) above sea level. During your ascent up Whistlers Mountain our tour guide will inform you of the area, points of interest, animal life and history as well as answering questions. More than just a pretty picture, more than just an attraction, it is a true learning experience.
THE HIGH ALPINE is your destination and the Upper Station offers a safe and awe-inspiring view that you may enjoy for as long as you have time. Remember, you are on vacation. Stroll the boardwalks viewing the interpretive plaques and watch for wildlife. Alpine inhabitants include the Hoary Marmot (famous for its whistling alert call), White-tailed Ptarmigan, Ground Squirrels, Pikas and the occasional Bighorn Sheep. Travel off of the boardwalks onto the hiking trails to the summit is possible but done so at your own risk. Please be safe and prepared. Dress appropriately.
