Jasper is surrounded by mountains. One of those is Whistlers, named for the sounds made by the resident marmots. Whistlers sits about 4000' above Jasper. One can climb to the summit - for 4-6 hours (multiply by two for us old fudds) on a developed trail. Or, more practically, one can go up most of the way on a tram and hike the remaining 700' of elevation.
