Jasper SkyTram provides an experience unlike any other in Canada by whisking guests to 2,263 metres, which provides easy access to a boardwalk and hiking trails in the alpine zone of the Canadian Rockies. Hike the Summit Trail to the peak of Whistlers Mountain (2,463m/8,081ft) for 360° views of six mountain ranges - including Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Make your visit to Jasper National Park, an integral part of the UNESCO Canadian Rockies World Heritage Site truly memorable.
There is a Jasper SkyTram cabin departing both the upper and lower stations every nine (9) minutes.
Trips up the mountain work the same way as airplane flights. When you purchase your Jasper SkyTram ticket, you will be given a specific travel time. Until then, sit back and relax.
While Jasper SkyTram accepts Visa, Mastercard, Debit and cash on site, our online store only accepts Visa and Mastercard.
When you purchase tickets in person you will asked to choose a downward flight time to avoid crowding at both stations. When you buy tickets online we recommend you select your downward flight time at the time of booking, if you don't you will need to choose a time when you arrive at the lower station.
The last cabin down leaves one (1) hour later than the last posted trip up the mountain. For example: If the Jasper SkyTram opening hours are 9am–5pm, the last car down is at 6:00pm.
Each Jasper SkyTram cabin is staffed with a trained operator who provides information on the unique geology, cultural heritage, flora and fauna of the area to help visitors gain an appreciation for the unique mountain landscape. Visitors are welcome to ask questions about the area or anything they see on the journey up the mountain.
This season we will be serving restaurant style food and beverages at upper station. There will also be takeaway snacks and treats available at the lower station. The indoor seating area will be utilized on a first come first served basis.
Jasper SkyTram is accessible by all motor vehicles including RVs and buses. Jasper SkyTram has a large parking lot with designated parking stalls for tour buses and RVs.
We recommend making a reservation through our online store, as it will save you wait time. However, you do not need to reserve your flight prior to showing up at the lower station of the SkyTram.
All groups are recommended to make reservations to guarantee travel up the mountain. A specific flight time will be assigned when a group reservation is made. Pick up tickets at the Reservations Window a minimum of 20 minutes prior to flight departure time. Failure to do so will result in an adjustment on the departure time according to Jasper SkyTram availability. Reserve your group adventure by completing the group/agent request form or contact us for more information.
We normally operate with 20-24 people per tram car, but capacity is flexible.
Compared to the Jasper townsite which sits at much lower elevation, the temperature is on average 2°C cooler at the Jasper SkyTram lower station and 12°C cooler at the upper station. Jasper SkyTram recommends that visitors bring extra clothing layers to keep warm/cool in all temperatures. Begin with a wicking layer, then a warmth layer, and finally waterproof/windproof layer. Weather changes in the mountains are often unpredictable and quick.
We regularly see Hoary Marmots, White-tailed Ptarmigans, Ground Squirrels, Pikas and sometimes Bighorn Sheep.
For short periods of the summer, enjoy the blooming of thousands of alpine flowers.
Jasper SkyTram believes in Green tourism. This includes minimalizing impact on the mountain and building environmental awareness and respect. Each Jasper SkyTram cabin is staffed with a trained operator who provides information on the unique geology, cultural heritage, flora and fauna of the area to help visitors gain an appreciation for the unique landscape. Please help protect the beauty of Jasper National Park by staying on designated trails and refrain from removing any rocks or vegetation from the area. If animals are spotted, please keep your distance for the safety of both yourself and the animal. Do not feed any animals.
For the most part, Jasper SkyTram is wheelchair accessible.
