Not only is the information building a lovely site to see (and the surroundings), but it had interesting items and a great map. It was worth the quick visit.

Stopped by to get some info on how to get to the Jasper sky tram and ended up meeting another couple doing the same and we shared a cab. The staff were happy to provide the number for the cab and the phone too.
