It is a magnificent mountain to see up close from the glacier paradise centre. The views going up to the centre are spectacular.

incredible excursion well worth the price. I think it is the best one there. Up at the top(13,000 feet) there are other trails to walk ski, or picnic with food service and ski rental.
