The adventure begins at an elevation of 4279 feet (1304 meters) above sea level in the safety of an enclosed cabin. A fully trained and knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you during the smooth seven minute trip to the Upper Station located at 7472 feet (2277 meters) above sea level. During your ascent up Whistler's Mountain, your tour guide will inform you of the area, points of interest, animal life and history.
The high alpine is your destination and the Upper Station offers a safe and unobstructed view that you may enjoy for as long as you have time. 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. You may travel off the boardwalks and onto the hiking trails at your own risk.
