“Phenomenal view from the top of the mountain”

We took the Tramway to the top of the mountain and the view is phenomenal. Town of Jasper, the lakes, the mountains... It is a well worth trip and suggest to go in a clear/sunny day.

We combined this with a trip to see the Angel Glacier on Mt Edith Cavell - they are both in the same direction from the town of Jasper. This meant we arrived at the Jasper tramway later in the afternoon when it was slightly quieter.

You need to use insect repellant both at the bottom (in the car park and waiting for your allotted 'flight') and at the top where there were some vicious and persistent black flies.

There was quite a slow queue to purchase a ticket, but you are given a fixed time for the gondola, so you can visit the cafe and restrooms while you wait. There are just a couple of places to sit in the gondola - most people stand.

At the top of the lift there is a bit of boardwalk with interpretative signs telling you about wildlife; we saw a pica and some golden mantled ground squirrels when we visited. After that, there's a track to the top of the mountain that is surprisingly hard work. You need a decent pair of walking shoes or trainers - we saw a number of people turning back because their sandals were unsuitable for the rather slippery gravel. It definitely required an effort to reach the top of the mountain - it is quite steep - but the 360 degree views were superb.

There was a short wait for a return journey, but there were some benches to sit on once you approached the front of the queue.

This was very cold and very busy. Riding in the gondola to the top of the mountain, I saw a Momma and baby bear on the side of the mountain. This is a great place to snow ski. I don't ski. My husband had this kn the internary, I am not sorry we went. Beautiful countryside!

We were packed in to the tram going up the mountain, but worth it when we got to the top. You can stay as long as you want and the ride down was great, only 11 people in the car.
We walked to the top, saw the marmots whose whistling gave the mountain its name.....you do as much or as little as you want. We had soup and coffee in the restaurant...a room with a view...the gift shop was well stocked and very reasonable

The tram ride was a little tight but the trip was worth it. Views were somewhat obscured but it is a must see on your journey.i agree that the cost is a little steep but ehere else in the area is not.
