Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Travel just 4 miles (7 kilometers) southwest of Jasper to the end of Whistlers Road to arrive at Jasper SkyTram. Time your visit for an early morning or evening flight to avoid crowds and take advantage of the best light for photos.

After you exchange your voucher at the reservations window for a ticket, climb aboard the enclosed tram car for a 7.5-minute ride to the upper station. Your tram ride will ascend to an elevation of 7,425 feet (2,263 meters). A guide will accompany you on your trip, sharing insights about the area, history, and wealth of wildlife. Once at the top, take a stroll on the accessible boardwalk for breathtaking views of Jasper National Park, the town of Jasper, turquoise-colored lakes, mountain ranges, and the Athabasca River Valley. Try hiking Whistlers Summit Trail to reach the top of Whistlers Mountain at 8,081 feet (2,463 meters) for a 360° view of six mountain ranges, including Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies.

Before you leave for your trip down the mountain, enjoy a coffee and light snack at the top of the Canadian Rockies. Visit the gift shops at the upper or lower stations to purchase a souvenir that will always remind you of this trip.

I’ve been to the Skytram many times in my life but it had been many years since my last ride. I booked online and there were technical difficulties getting guests checked in but the staff were on top of it all, making sure to get people up the mountain. The guide was super friendly and the whole journey was really fun. Glad to be back after so long!

The staff was very helpful with the tickets off Mt phone and very friendly throughout our adventure. They were also shoveling the boardwalk also making our way safe. Clean, friendly environment. 2nd time for me, first for my husband and we will always make it a point to come back.

Alex was our operator on the ride up. He was courteous, knowledgeable and funny. You can tell he loves Jasper and loves his job. It made all the difference. You can’t find a view like that anywhere. It was fast and safe. Weather conditions were perfect. Beautiful and great value for what you pay.
