Jasper SkyTram

1. Jasper SkyTram

Travel just 4 miles (7 kilometers) southwest of Jasper to the end of Whistlers Road to arrive at Jasper SkyTram. Time your visit for an early morning or evening flight to avoid crowds and take advantage of the best light for photos. After you exchange your voucher at the reservations window for a ticket, climb aboard the enclosed tram car for a 7.5-minute ride to the upper station. Your tram ride will ascend to an elevation of 7,425 feet (2,263 meters). A guide will accompany you on your trip, sharing insights about the area, history, and wealth of wildlife. Once at the top, take a stroll on the accessible boardwalk for breathtaking views of Jasper National Park, the town of Jasper, turquoise-colored lakes, mountain ranges, and the Athabasca River Valley. Try hiking Whistlers Summit Trail to reach the top of Whistlers Mountain at 8,081 feet (2,463 meters) for a 360° view of six mountain ranges, including Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Before you leave for your trip down the mountain, enjoy a coffee and light snack at the top of the Canadian Rockies. Visit the gift shops at the upper or lower stations to purchase a souvenir that will always remind you of this trip.

Very well done with interesting facts and also multiple choice questions about the area. Learned a lot about the various attractions along the way. However, there is a stop called Maligne Lake saying it was 15 km away. Crazy, but the next day we decided to go as far as Maligne Lake without referring to a physical map. We thought it was on the Icefield's Pathway as the narrator had mentioned it when we had been on the Parkway the day before. We didn't have access to a physical map, so ended up going quite far on the parkway until we realized that Maligne Lake was not on the Parkway. We consulted a physical map and found it east of Jasper, not south. A physical map can really make a difference to not getting lost. I think if the attraction is not close by, the narrator shouldn't mention it.

The skytram was amazing very insightful, the guides were very knowledgeable and full of info, the sights were awesome and the pictures we got were very amazing

A little expensive but we are understanding the costs of maintenance etc. we’ll organized. Run smoothly. Views outstanding with a fabulous memory. Thank-you
