Concierge.com's insider take:
This family-friendly sky ride lifts visitors 3,193 vertical feet up Whistler's Mountain. Not recommended for the acrophobic, the gentle seven-minute airborne journey affords aerial views of glacier-fed lakes, the Athabasca River, and the town of Jasper. From the tram's stopping point, it's a 30-to-45-minute hike to the top of the mountain. Bring warm clothes if you plan to tackle the 8,085-foot summit.
Open seasonally 10 am to 5 pm (9 am to 8 pm late July through August). Closed mid-October through mid-April.
