See the Real Rockies from the Top of the World this Spring


The Jasper SkyTram - a soaring seven-minute tram flight to the top of Whistler's mountain - will be reopening for the 2017 season beginning on Friday, March 24th!

People have been moved by the awe-inspiring Canadian Rockies for as long as we’ve been exploring. Hiking, scrambling, and straight-up climbing to summits might be the perfect adventure for some, but for the rest of us the Jasper SkyTram is a more direct route to the best view in Jasper.

At an elevation of 2,277 metres, the SkyTram’s upper terminal offers explorers the opportunity to reconnect with the natural beauty of the real Rockies and gain a unique perspective that you can only get when you’re on top of the world.

Whistler’s Mountain will be blanketed in snow on opening day, but visitors can start exploring the alpine and summiting Whistler’s peak with snowshoes! The 1.2 summit hike will reward you with a whole new view of the Canadian Rockies, and will allow you to stand among six mountain ranges.  

Though spring is fast-approaching, be sure to come prepared in your winter attire! Snowshoe rentals will be available at the upper station retail store. 

Explorers who are planning a Jasper adventure between March 24th and May 19th can plan to conquer two peaks in one visit. Thanks to a special cross-promotion, you can get a 20% discount on the Skytram if you bring along a Marmot Basin lift ticket from the 2016/2017 season or your Sunshine Marmot card! Ski one mountain in the morning and snowshoe atop another in the afternoon – now that's a real Rockies experience!
