We took the cable tram to the top and back, the views from up here could be truly spectacular but on a clear day only, the clouds kept on coming and going making visibility tough. What views we could see were simply sensational, there is a restaurant at the summit.Great ride and commentary both up and down the mountain.

We had Northern Lites 2 for 1 coupon - otherwise, probably not worth the $20 per adult ($10 per kid) trip. Nice glacier views from the top and improved with a short hike up a trail (probably 15 minute walk and 200-300 elevation gain). They do serve food/drink after 4:00 at the top.

This is a great place to view the area on the tram, with a museum at the top as well as a restaurant . We hiked and loved every minute of it.

A quality hotel in an amazing setting. Excellent choice of restaurants on site. Fun to ride the gondola up to the restaurant at the top and take in the scenery.

If you have taken a tram anywhere in the US or Europe, then this experience will not be anything spectacular. The clouds were very low; therefore, we could not see the glaciers or the mountains. There is very commentary on the ride up the mountain. Coming down the mountain, the operator shared some inforamtion about skiing in the area.
