My husband does not do well with heights, but loved the view. We rode the tram several times during our stay. Great for pictures.

Even though it was a cloudy rainy day, the trip up the tram was worth it. Able to see some nice views of the inlet below and the surrounding mountains.

It was a rainy overcast day, but the views were still spectacular. There is a gift shop at the top and a restaurant and bar. Views while you eat can't be beat.

Well worth the admission, gorgeous view and we saw bear down below in the forest. Also worth spending some time at the museum at the top. Winter time is probably a better time of year to do this!

Also if you hike to the top via the North Face Trail, you get a free ride down. It's a bit of a strenuous hike - 2.2 miles and lots of switchbacks.
