Jasper SkyTram, Jasper, Alberta, Canada

The Basics

Book a spot on the Jasper SkyTram and get ready for a spectacular 7-minute ride up the mountain. A guide is aboard each tramcar to point out landmarks and share information about the area as you glide over the alpine woodland. At the top, you can browse in the Upper Station gift shop, enjoy a meal overlooking the Canadian Rockies, or hike the 0.75-mile (1.2-kilometer) trail to the summit.

Great trip

They filled the Tram cars with too many people considering it is still COVID and then you could not even turn to see what the guide was talking about. It is very beautiful and had recently showed so the children really enjoyed that. The tram operator was very informative.

The staff were excellent and did their jobs well, with enthusiasm! The view needs no words as none can describe it. You need to see it for yourself!

Amazing tram operator. Very knowledgeable of the area and town. On top of the mountain it was very cold and windy. We didn’t make it to the summit. Will definitely do it again. Beautiful view of the town, mountain ranges and rivers.

I was super impressed with the health and safety measures put into place. Staff were so friendly and the experience was better than ever with capacity capped at 40%. This is the best time for Albertans and Canadians to go enjoy Jasper and the tramway.

It's a must when you visit Jasper. Whistlers Summit offers an easy hike with incredible views. It can be slippery on a rainy day. Sturdy walking/hiking shoes would be wise.

It was fun! Recommend wearing some winter gear while going up even in summer. The operator was funny! Overall a great experience!

  • Expect to spend about two hours on the adventure.

How to Get There

The Jasper SkyTram is located 5 miles (8 kilometers) southwest of Jasper, Alberta. If you don’t have a vehicle, taxis, rental cars, and a shuttle are available from town. The road is steep, which makes hiking or mountain biking to the tram difficult.

When to Get There

The Jasper SkyTram is open from mid-March through October. The tram is open longer hours in the summer to accommodate the demand; visiting early or late means fewer crowds. Peak season is from the end of June through August, when the weather is best. If you’re visiting in shoulder season (March/April or September/October), be prepared to encounter winter conditions, which can hamper views.

Banff Gondola and Jasper SkyTram

Visitors to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks often wonder if they should ride the Banff Gondola or the Jasper SkyTram. Each attraction offers a different experience. The Jasper SkyTram tends to experience less traffic, has larger cars, and is higher above sea level. The Banff Gondola underwent a renovation in 2017 and has several restaurants, a boardwalk at the top, and an interpretive center. If you have the time, enjoy both.
