What You Can Expect

Jasper SkyTram

Treeline Restaurant at Jasper Tramway

Take an unforgettable ride on the Jasper SkyTram, the longest and highest aerial tramway in all of Canada. This sky-high trip, offering incredible views of six different mountain ranges, the city of Jaspe, numerous glacial lakes and the Athabasca River, is perfect for the whole family.

Arrive at the SkyTram any time during the attraction’s opening hours. Check with your tour operator to confirm the most current schedule. Climb aboard your enclosed gondola for the ride to the top. An experienced and knowledgeable guide will accompany you on your trip, sharing a few insights about the area, its history and the wealth of wildlife nearby during your ride. 

Over the course of your seven-minute ride, you’ll ascend to a height of 7,472 feet (2,277m) above sea level, enjoying superlative views of the surrounding mountain ranges as you climb. Soon you arrive at the high-alpine Upper Station, where you can take in panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Make sure to take a stroll on one of the area’s boardwalks where you can watch for wildlife. Among the many creatures you might spot are white-tailed ptarmigan, ground squirrels, hoary marmots (famous for their whistling alerts), pikas and sometimes even bighorn sheep. Take a detour off the boardwalks and onto the nearby hiking trails at your own risk.

Before you leave, make sure to stop by High Altitude Shopping, the area’s only high-alpine gift shop, where you can grab a t-shirt or a souvenir for friends back home.

Please note: this product is seasonal and only operates from April through to October.

The tram tour is excellent, but only if you take advantage of the hike to the top of Whistler's Mountain and have lunch at the café in the upper station. If you only go for the ride and the view, you might think the cost is a little high. The food in the café was excellent! The hike was a little difficult, and probably not suited for the elderly or small children baby carriages will definitely not roll on the path as at some spots was very steep. The views are amazing if you catch it on a clear day.

i FORGOT THE TICKETS THAT WERE PRINTED before we left Birmingham, it took a few minutes for them to be found on line,but were. The trip was well worth the money, but the person on the tram did not say a word to us.
