Seven minute to the top gives you a great view of the mountains and the town of Jasper below. A trail leads to a higher altitude, and although we only walked it half way, others said that when you get to what 'looks' like the top, you actually have to walk further -- looks deceiving. Well worth the money!

I booked this ride a number of months prior. Check in went well, staff were friendly and helpful. A great ride up on a clear evening. The hike to the top of the plaque from the tram building at the summit was a lung buster coming from sea level earlier in the day. Beautiful views all around. I wanted something... More

Whilst in Jasper, the SkyTram takes you to the clouds to give you a great view of Jasper town and the surrounding lakes. At $35 for an adult ticket and an 8minute ride up the mountain it seems a bit expensive but you are rewarded with great views. Can be a bit chilly with the weather constantly changing. Bring a...

What can you say about a cable car? Yes it goes up a mountain. But and it's a big but.... What a view! Canada is huge! Yes we know that but I am sure you can see all of it from up there! At least it feels that way. There are easy way marked trails to the best viewing spots... More

I am not a big fan of sky trams, but this trip was definitely worth my uneasiness. The view from the top is fabulous, all the valleys below, the winding rivers,etc. While we were there, we observed a wedding party at the summit...what a place for that happy occasion. I would definitely recommend this tour, even to those who, like... More

gondola rides give you great views, but at Jasper you will note the tiniest wild flowers sprouting from sheer rocks you walk the well marked trails. A small restaurant offers light snacks and hot drinks; the price is right. We saw a rainbow -below- us. Fantastic.

Very enjoyable, you can stay on the board walk and still have a great view or you can hike to the summit, which my teens did. There is a restaurant but we brought snacks and drinks and sat at the benches. Loved it!

If your staying at Jasper Fairmont Lodge doing the Tram is a bit dicey. The shuttle schedule and Tram Schedule do not work well together. The views are great but they come at a price.

Take time to appreciate the beauty. There is nothing that I did not appreciate. I love to stand back and visualize what this all looked like before these views were available to us but I do appreciate these opportunities
