The Jasper Tramway

Our first morning in Jasper commenced with a talk by Steve from Canada Parks. He spoke to us about the types of rescues they carry out in the parks including people who fall through ice crevasses, people who get in to trouble mountaineering, tourists who jump safety barriers to get that "amazing photo" and fall into waterfalls, plus a few stories about human-animal altercations. He also told us a rescue story when the Jasper Tramway broke down and everyone had to be lowered approx 80m to the ground via rope....... Our next stop was Jasper tramway.
Jasper Tramway (http://www.jaspertramway.com/)  begins at an elevation of 1304 metres above sea level in an enclosed Tram cabin. It took seven minute to get to the Upper Station located on Whistlers Mountain at 2277 metres above sea level. It was a beautiful ride to the top.... Which everyone except Adam seemed to enjoy.
Jasper Tramway Whistler Mountain Once we made it to the top of Whistlers Mountain, the majority of us hiked up to the summit. This was our first hike through patches of snows which was exciting. The view from the top was amazing, so even the hard work getting up, everyone was stoked when they got to the top. Many obligatory photos were taken before we descended a little to have a picnic lunch out of the wind. The afternoon was left free. Some hired bikes, others caught up on some much needed sleep, a few hit the local shops and the others spent some time by the pool. Very relaxing end to a busy day.
