“Breathtaking view”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Took the tram up but decided to hike up to the top. The view was unbelievable. I could have spent a few hours enjoying the scenery of the Athabasca River cutting through the landscape way down below. Definitely would make the climb to the top again!

“Very rewarding climb!”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

We had previously been up to the top before via the tramway but this time decided to climb. It was a red hot day but luckily most of the climb is through the trees. The last bit seemed to be the hardest but it is well worth the push. Great views at the top which feels very rewarding!

“exhilarating climb”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

After enjoying the Jasper Tramway, if you want to climb to the top be warned. It took us about an hour and only going very slowly, very thin air going up.It is well worth though as you can see all the mountain ranges in front of you, an awe inspiring sight.

It was actually more difficult getting down as you had to go sideways. Didn't think I would do it but it was a great sense of achievement. Many didn't make it.

“Couldn't find a marmot.”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Clear your head in the cold mountain air! Beautiful views of many mountains and the town of Jasper below. I was up there at the end of May, and it was 3 degrees Celsius - very refreshing! There was a bit of snow on the ground, and patches of mud, so be careful you don't slip! It even started to snow-hail while I was there. Loved it! Sadly, didn't see any wild animals up there.

“Stunning panoramic views”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

So worthwhile on a clear day. From the upper tram station we hiked up the to the top - it's a climb, but worth every step. The panoramic views of the surrounding mountains were stunning.
