Whistlers Mountain

Today, we took the Jasper SkyTram to the summit of Whistlers Mountain, just above Jasper. The SkyTram takes you most of the way, but the actual summit requires a further 1.2km hike.

Apparently, it’s called Whistlers Mountain after the animals, a hoary marmot. We were told they whistle when scared.

About two thirds of the way up the hike.
The summit! Someone else took the flag up with them, so I snapped a quick shot.

The way we came yesterday, the Icefields Parkway. Unfortunately, the smoke haze from fires in BC obscured some of the view.
Someone was having a lot of fun, although he would have had a decent hike to launch from the ridge line of Whistlers Mountain.
On the way down, I snapped the other car.
