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 buffet breakfast or buffet lunch that is enjoyed at the lodge near the base of the gondola. Guided interpretive walks take place at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 daily and last about 45 minutes.
