How to Get There

4 months ago

Love It

I took my grandparents here who are from South Africa so getting to overlook a huge portion of land from the top of the mountain was an amazing experience for them. There's a lot of ground squirrels (I think that's what they were haha) and they're just too cute. There's a bit of a hike at the top as well which looked really fun but I couldn't do it unfortunately as my grandparents aren't well. I recommend this gondola to everyone !

Make sure to hike up to the top!

As stated, it is worth the cost of the gondola up to the Skytram. I have not yet done the one in Banff to be able to compare. There is a guide in the gondolas so on the way up there is a narration to get an idea of what is around. The staff was friendly and our time on the Skytram was enjoyable. We were lucky enough to hit this on a day full of blue skies so the views were spectacular. Bring a jacket though it was very windy up there. The hike is a bit steep to the summit but the panoramic views are worth it. We saw a few marmots on our way up. Plan to spend some time up there so you can hike to the top and sit down and enjoy the views, there isn't a specific limit on the amount of time you can stay up there so enjoy it and definitely to not rush this part of your trip in Jasper.

Worth the cost of the sky tram

It costs around $30 for one person to go up the sky tram but in my opinion it is definitely worth it. My sister and I went up there in September of 2015 and it was such a beautiful day. Could see as far as the mountains let you. Beautiful views of Jasper, Athabasca River, Pyramid Mountain and many others. You can also hike while you are up there to the very peak of Whistlers mountain. Check out and photograph some mountain goats too!
