The Whistlers

July 22, 2012

Shawn and Jenn took Shawn's mom Bev to Jasper to celebrate a milestone birthday in 2012.

Saturday was spent visiting various locations along the Icefields Parkway. When we awoke on Sunday, the skies had cleared and we made our way up the Jasper Tramway.

Jenn and Shawn took off to make a quick summit of The Whistlers and to take some photos of the scenery and the wildlife. Because about 1000m of the elevation gain is by tram, this is by far the easiest 'summit' to obtain within hundreds of kilometres.

Not including the Jasper Tramway component:
Trip Length: 3km
Cumulative Ascent/Descent: 200m
