A great family activity! Highly recommend taking advantage of the early bird reduced rates in the first hour or so of opening because you save money on tickets and avoid the crowds. We have young children and found 1.5 hrs long enough, just bring a snack you can enjoy atop the mountain. You get to select a time to come down, which is great, as it helps avoids line ups.

Bring water, a warm sweater or raincoat if it's a wet day, sunscreen, a hat and wear good shoes! You'll likely want to explore the trails even if you aren't a big hiker.

This books up quickly so plan ahead the day before you want to go. Plan to spend about 2-3 hours here, especially if you want to hike to the top of the summit. The tram operator was funny and knowledgeable. You are required to wear a mask while on the tram and inside the facilities. They don’t provide them, but you can purchase one in the gift shop ($$). The views are amazing. The restaurant is not operating at this time, but you can purchase sandwiches and drinks from cafe.
The road leading up to the sky tram is beautiful; we saw our first black bear of the trip here.

Very friendly staff who gave you lots of info and advice if needed. The views are amazing . It only took 7mins to get to the top and you hardly felt any movement. Yes I know its not cheap but fully understand its very short time its open due to the weather conditions. You can hire snow shoe's at $15 to get to the summit in winter time. Worth a visit

We took an early morning trip up the tram. It was very safe. We chose to hike to the summit (fantastic) and by the time we got back to the tram it was very busy. You are forced to wait inside a small enclosed space with no formal line up. This makes it very challenging to social distance and a number of other visitors were not wearing masks properly (noses or mouths uncovered). This was not a safe environment and had I known this is the case I would not have taken the risk. Visitors should line up outside and people need to be able to socially distance when in line. Staff should encourage proper mask wearing.

We are sorry you encountered guests wearing their masks improperly at the upper station. Per our current policy, masks must be worn in areas where physical distancing of 2m cannot be achieved. This is enforced through staff and signage. Your feedback has been discussed among the team and we thank you for the reminder to watch closely for situations where additional reinforcement may be required.

It was a nice ride, kind of glad we went after new restrictions just based on how many people they jam into a car at once. The downside is they were behind so we went up 20 minutes after our flight time but the guy was apologetic about it.
The view from the top is worth it alone, its amazing! The Starbucks inside was also a bonus, especially being able to add a couple shots of Bailey's to our drinks!

Staff at venue very friendly and generally efficient. The views are, of course, spectacular. My concerns deal with Covid 19 measures, which need some major improvement. Although the tram is wiped down with disinfectant spray after each journey, it is done so hastily that it is not a thorough job. 12 people to a tram while ascending and up to 15 descending was still too cramped for any proper distancing. The worst, however, is the complete lack of spacing when lining up to descend. The waiting area is far too small and we all felt very exposed. The other important point is that the venue is challenging for anyone in a wheelchair. The ramp to the check in point is very steep and one should get permission to drive a vehicle up rather than attempting to push someone up the ramp. The upper restaurant has no wheelchair accessibility and even the supposedly wheelchair accsesible boardwalk has a number of major dips that make wheelchair movement a challenge.

We had a fantastic time at the Jasper SkyTram! The views are astonishing and I love the amount of history this small day trip can pump out. The staff were all personable, knowledgeable, and looked like they enjoyed working there. On the ride up to the top of the mountain, our guide pointed out the several peaks, lakes, and other areas of interest with ease and enthusiasm. The gift shop at the top of the mountain is probably the most reasonably priced in Jasper (although you have to pay for a lift ticket, of course). We didn't have an opportunity to dine here but the views were all we needed. Lastly, I'd like to commend our guide on our way down, Tayah, for being so kind and easy to talk to! If you haven't yet, take the ten(ish) minute drive from downtown and enjoy this excursion!

Booked our tickets the night before, which I highly recommend. A few families showed up while we were waiting for our turn wanting to buy tickets but everything was sold out. About a 5-10 minute drive from the town of Jasper. Nice gift shop with plenty of souvenirs. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. You board the gondola to go up the mountain at your reserved time. When they let you off you can take your time, as long as you're on the last gondola of the day. About 7500 ft high with the most amazing views of the Jasper valley! From the point of drop off to the summit of Whilsters Mountain is about a 1 km hike (could be 2, I'm not 100% sure). Path is well maintained and outlined with rocks. IMO the price is a little steep, however this is another experience my family and I will never forget.

A Must-do in activity for anyone visiting Jasper. I took 3 teenagers and they loved seeing the town, the rivers and lakes we had visited. It was a great view of the entire area. You can just go up the Tram to view the scenery at the top or if you have the time and energy, you can easily walk up to higher ground - if this is your thing. You are above the tree line so every step of the way is a great view.

The staff were so enthusiastic - you could tell they loved working their job and sharing the magic of the mountains.

The Jasper Sky Tram (not a gondola) is a great way to get incredible views of the Jasper area BUT only on a relatively clear day. On cloudy / overcast days, there is very little to see of the valley below once you are up top. The staff did warn me about the poor conditions prior to me purchasing a ticket. I went up both during an overcast day and a partly cloudy day (to get different photos).
Once at the top, there are viewing platforms easily accessible by anyone. For those who want to go a bit further, there's a hike which leads all the way up the mountain. The lower portion of the hike is doable by families with children, but as you progress up, there are harder portions (you can easily turn back once you reach the limit of your abilities).

Plan to spend a minimum of 30 minutes at the top + additional time for any extra hiking.

The price is a little bit steep, especially for a large family. At the time of this review, locals can get 30% off, AMA and youth hostel can get 15% off.
