Based on the Trip Advisor reviews we decided to pay the $40 for the return shuttle ( from/to Jasper) plus the Skytram today. We were both so pleased we did this. The panoramic view from the top is stunning. Worth every cent. It's a 7 min ride up in the Skytram and trams run every 9 mins. This is a... More

The tram is designed for perhaps 10, but 26 are shunted in at a time. while the views are amazing, you can't turn around to see one. The hike at the top is nice, but the restaurant has the most uncomfortable seats and worst coffee just when you need a nice beak from the hike. Not worth $37.50

Very excellent presentation with auditory device. The view and sky walk were a once in life time experience. However, didn't like the fact that you had to book this excursion from the hotel and couldn't go on your own. Also, no public washroom available.

This is a must do in Jasper as long as the weather is good. We went up on a beautiful day and the views were spectacular. The down side was that there had been snow the previous week and the hike to the summit was still wet and slippery so we only went up about half way (more concerned about... More

The dog friendly ride is the high light must do thing in Jasper. You gotta take the hike to the top though. All sorts of body types did it, and ages. You can hike up from the bottom but it will add an hour or more to your trip. the top, the peak, is a stunning view. Bring your camera.... More

The journey up the tram and walking around provides a gorgeous view of Jasper town and the lakes, mountain ranges and the Athabasca river flowing it's winding course. The climb to the summit of whistler from the tram is around 700 feet. It took us around 3 hrs to go up and climb down. The 360 degree view from there... More

We did a combo ticket bought at Maligne Tours. Sky Tram and Maligne Lake cruise - $80/person. We had a 3 pm booking. Yes, you have to book. There was a delay for the 2:00 tram so when we got our ticket for the 3, we were asked if we'd like to go up early (2:30). That was a bonus.... More

Fun experience to go to the "almost" top of the mountain. The weather didn't cooperate on our day, but it was neat to be inside some clouds! Too cold for us to walk much more than a few minutes with a toddler in tow. But it was nice to warm up in the cafeteria with some hot chocolate!

Not only were the views fantastic but the staff were so friendly too. Tim in the cafe was really helpful and so enthusiastic. We had a lovely breakfast looking at the amazing views. From the ticket guy, drivers (who jokingly call themselves pilots) to the shop and cafe staff, they all appeared to love their jobs and wanted us to... More

This was a wonderful experience! The tram up is quite crowded and you have to smoosh in, but the trip is well worth it m Make sure to wear proper footwear as the hike to the summit is quite steep in places. I would recommend water for sure. There are a few rocks you can climb to get even better... More
