Better on the way down. It was a quick ride and friendly service. It is expensive if you don't make a lunch or dinner reservation. It would cost you $25 a ticket otherwise.

You get a full day for $25, but since we weren't skiing, there wasn't much to do once we got up there, but the view was spectacular. It was cold and snowy out or we might have gone up again. There is a deli and a resturant at the top for any non-skiers- the tram can get hectic though, because... More

I wish I planned better and took the tram when the deli was still open it;s expensive to just ride up and look around. It's a great view of the mountains and Turnagain Arm though. When we got back down we found a moose which made the whole experience better! The parking area is a good distance away the shuttle... More

It's the only way to get to the top of the mountain and enjoy the wonderful restaurant up there. Well worth it!

The cable car leaves every 15 minutes and is $22 with a seniors card. You have to park in the carpark which is a 10 min walk away if the shuttle bus is not working. The cable car stops at the roundhouse and it is a steep climb to the topwhere you get stunning views of the glacier. Where appropriate... More

While a bit expensive the tram is well worth it for the outstanding and breathtaking views. The scenery is stunning even in winter!

The tram is $25 for adults (roundtrip/you can hang out at the top for as long as you want). The view from the top is absolutely stunning! We went in the butt end of December and they whole area was covered in snow! From the top, you can watch skiers and snowboarders do their thing, eat, and take in the... More

Rode the tram with my 9 and 7 year old in late fall. Saw a moose on the way up the mountain and the workers told us they had just seen a brown bear at the top before we got there. It was rainy but still a great view

The room was good. The view was of the tram leading up the mountain. It was so cloudy we could nor see very much. The music was good especially when a large group started to play. Being a lone couple, it was not very much fun. The food was adequate. We went to bed early and left right after breakfast.
