Frontier’s Personal Experience

“The view over the Jasper town and beyond is simply stunning at the top of Whistlers Mountain, courtesy of a journey up the SkyTram. Take the time for an alpine hike and see if you can spot the Hoary Marmots that scurry about the mountain and are known for making a whistling call (hence Whistlers Mountain).”
