Fodor's Review

Ride this to an alpine plateau for a stunning view that includes more than a dozen glaciers. The deck of the Wildlife Interpretive Centre is a good place to enjoy an ice-cream cone, a cold drink, or a picnic lunch, or you can buy a ticket that includes a buffet breakfast or lunch at the lodge near the gondola's base. Guided interpretive walks (45 minutes) take place at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 daily.
