From the lower station it’s a 7 minute ride to the upper station, which sits at an altitude of 2274m above sea level. It is possible to hike to the summit which is about 2500m above sea level. When we visited the temperature at the upper station was only 6C compared with 12C at the lower station, and despite the... More

If you want a terrific view of Jasper and don't wish to do any walking then this is the trip for you. I found it rather pricey but am glad that I went. My children found it quite exciting hanging on a cable on the side of the mountain.

As the name suggests its not a gondola nor a ski-lift,but a tramway,which means only 2 tramcars are available for travellers,one going up,one coming down,connected to the same cable.The "Jasper SkyTram" was built in 1964 by German company "PHB".Both my wife and I worked for this company,before immigrating to Canada.This knowledge made it easier for us to climb into the...

You don't want to miss a ride in the cable car if you are in Jasper. The ride feels perfectly safe, and the views are great on a clear day. There is a restaurant at the top of the tramway, and there are opportunities to walk to the summit and beyond from there.

This is worth doing if you love panoramic views. The cable car takes you up toan elevated resteraunt and gift shop but if you are quite able bodied you can continue on to the summit and have 360 degree views of the Jasper area....well worth the effort.

the hike up is free but if you have small children or don't feel up to the climb, the tram is an excellent alternative!

Great tram ride in that the view from the top is marvelous, and the food at the restaurant at the top of the tram is very good and moderately priced. It's not just a ski-lift, but rather a purpose-built tourist attraction. To see the mountains and glaciers surrounding Jasper from this vantage point is truly a treat for the eyes.

The service was great!! The ride up the mountain side was nice. We were there is September and we couldn't hike the summit because it was snowing. I plan on doing that next trip, but such a lovely view of Jasper.

We travelled up to the top with only 2 other people in the Gondola. After we had enjoyed an amazing experience at the top, we decided it was time to come back down to earth. Unfortunately, so did almost everyone else! Our waiting time to enter the gondola was almost an hour, and one of the visitors fainted due to... More

Took the tram ride and did the hike and it was awesome. The scenic views are fantastic and it is worth the climb.
