“Great vies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We went on a rainy day so the views were not that great. A sunnier day would have made this day a whole lot nicer for us. We rode up on the tramway, had a lovely breakfast and then looked around. I tried walking on the trails but it was so foggy and rainy that I decided to return to the tramway building. On a nice day I think it would be a great excursion.

“When the Whistler is closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The views from the top of the Tramway is still spectacular!
We took the tram due to its historic and brilliant engineering history, and how that the original tram is still being used! There is also a small cafe on the top with views. Food is average. It may not be approved of, but we did trespass the "closed" sign with some others and did a small hike atop the whistlers.

“top of the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a must do on a clear day-we were able to see Mt Robson from the top without clouds over-a very rare sight apparently! It gives you a good overall view of the whole area-loved it. We had 27*c and cloudless skys whilst here-I believe that is quite unusual but they had a late summer this year. I was a bit miffed that we had to pay full fare even though we only had half an hour left up there as they shut early, which meant we could not walk to the summit-only had time to take pictures! but what pictures-totally awesome!

“Great ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We really enjoyed this tram ride and the gorgeous scenery. I think it was $30 but I don't remember the exact price. It can be cold up there so bundle up.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The view was amazing. Take warm cloths at the end of the season. Lots of space to find a spot and enjoy the views. It is a great spot to enjoy the colors of the lakes.
