“Smooth tram ride up”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

A smooth ride to the top and you overlook the town of Jasper, many lakes, the river, and the trains going through town. From the top of the tram you can hike even higher on a steep trail. We were lucky we were at the top on a sunny and not to windy day so we could see a long ways. As a claustrophobic I had no trouble on the tram. The ride is smooth and quick with open views all around.

“fantastic views 360 *”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

short ride to the top of Jasper!
if the weather is fine like on our visit you will enjoy a fantastic view as far as to mount Robson! But also the Athabasca river valley and all the glaciers around make this trip an outstanding one
it is well worse to walk up to the top (about 20-30 minutes) the view is just amazing, you might see some wildlife up there too. Right niw there is a mountain lion around so the hiking trail down to Jasper is closed! enjoy....

“Breathtaking - literally”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I really don't understand people moaning about the tramcars being full of people - it's a 7 minute journey!

The walk to the summit was very pleasant for its fantastic views and the people that we met on the way. Some people struggled with the thinner air but if you take things at your own pace you'll be fine. There are plenty of places to rest on the way up and plenty of views to see whilst you are resting.

The views across The Rockies are just stunning.

“Top of the mountain”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Going up and gaining altitude on the sky tram and seeing the incredible view of the town and rivers is a must.The only problem was finding a parking spot as it took 20 minutes to park.
