Sky Tram took u,s right to the top of the mountain. The view there was absolutely marvelous. Could see all of Jasper Village, & around, snow capped mountains, it was the begging of the winter, cold, but bearable. Better view than from tip of Swiss Alps.

An impressive ride up the mountain but when we were there (August) we decided to wait until 5.00pm to go up to miss the worst of the queues - even so, we had to wait around 45 mins each way! At the top the views are spectacular but there is very little to do - a short walk across to... More

We all had fun in the tram, and hiking up to the summit. Took loads of pictures and the kids enjoyed climbing some of the big rocks. It was a steep hike, but there was only a little complaining. Wear good stout shoes if you plan to hike to the summit!

This is a must do and well worth every penny. We made sure we got there early and onto one of the first trams. The views from the top tram station are stunning on a clear day but make sure you are wearing decent shoes/ boots and make the effort to climb to the top of Whistler mountain, it looks... More

Trams are very crowded and if you are unlucky enough to be stuck in the middle, you can see nothing on the trip up. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable morning. Peaceful and quiet at the top of Mount Whistlers. A little expensive but in line with other attractions in the Rockies.

The parking lot was full so we had to park down the road a bit. It took 20-25 minutes of standing in line to purchase the tickets. Another 70 minute wait to board the tram. Crowded inside the tram. It's beautiful at the top. Did it take my breath away? No. We didn't spend a lot of time once we... More

Made our reservations through Sundogtours so we could get the shuttle bus service, it turned up on time! My wife is a tadge nervous of heights so didn't take advantage of the view on the way up and down in the cable car but they were pretty fantastic. Once at the top station there is a far old trek to... More

Nice ride up the mountain. Able to explore up top, walk to summit etc. Saw some wildlife and awesome views of jasper and surrounding areas. Worth a visit

After a short ride to the top we were blown away with the magnificant views over the Rocky Montains. The short climb to the Summit 8000ft was not only good exercise but exposed additional 360 degree views of this agressive and impressive mountain range. The staff and Tree Line restaurant selection was very satisfying and Tim Poaps Food and Beverage... More

Visibility was great from the top. We were apparently lucky to be able to see the peak of Mount Robson in the distance – it is normally covered in cloud and has the distinction of being the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. We continued from the upper station up to the summit of Whistlers mountain, where my son (11)... More
