Jasper Skytram is the highest and longest aerial tramway in Canada. It travels up to an elevation of 2277 metres (7472 feet) above sea level.

The tram ride takes approximately 7 minutes. A tram operator will point out various landmarks on the way up. Each car can carry up to 30 passengers.

At the upper terminal there is a gift shop and the Summit Restaurant.

The views from the upper terminal are spectacular, but are even better at the summit of Whistler’s Mountain. The 1.4 km trail to the summit starts at the end of the upper terminal boardwalk.

Whistler’s Mountain is also the place to see the Hoary marmot. These ground squirrels are everywhere.

Jasper Skytram is approximately 8 kilometres from Jasper. The tram operates from mid March to late October.
