Enjoy views from top of the World!
The Jasper Tramway, located only 3.5 km south of the Jasper town site and 3.5 km north of Becker’s Chalets, is an unforgettable experience and attraction for the whole family.
With astonishing and breathtaking mountain and panoramic views, you’re sure to experience Jasper National Park and the Canadian Rockies like never before. You begin your gondola tramway trip at the lower chalet (at an elevation of 1,304 meters) in a completely enclosed tram.
A trained and knowledgeable guide will accompany you, while pointing out sites and answering questions, throughout your 7 minute journey to the top of Whistlers Mountain and home of the upper chalet (at an elevation of 2,277 meters).
Due to the elevation, the top of Whistlers Mountain will be much cooler than down below, so it is highly recommended to dress accordingly. Once you’ve reached the top you are more than welcome to hike along the path to the summit of Whistlers Mountain, take in the panoramic views, or watch the small wild animals that habitat the area, including the hoary marmot.
From the top you will see the Jasper town site, similarly shaped to the letter “J”, you will see the mountains, which seem to never end. The many lakes that surround the town of Jasper are also things that can be easily seen, especially due to their vibrant color. The outlines of Jasper Park Lodge can also be seen, closer to some of these vibrant lakes. Looking in a slightly different direction, you can also see Becker’s Chalets which is located along the Athabasca River. With such breathtaking scenic views, you are sure to have a memorable experience that lasts a lifetime.
