Amazing view

It's a must when you visit Jasper. Whistlers Summit offers an easy hike with incredible views. It can be slippery on a rainy day. Sturdy walking/hiking shoes would be wise.

I was super impressed with the health and safety measures put into place. Staff were so friendly and the experience was better than ever with capacity capped at 40%. This is the best time for Albertans and Canadians to go enjoy Jasper and the tramway.

Very nice staff. It was a neat ride up but a bit pricey for a 9 minute up. We couldn't see much because of rain and fog. And then it was snowing at the top even though it was in July.

Excellent day out with walk to main summit. Weather was very kind to us, with Mount Robson clearly visible all day

Disappointing

The skywalk is not up the side of a mountain, it is by the main road. You are taken 3 miles up the road away from the glacier, which is still visible further away, for the same views you would get from the road. The novelty is a sort-of transparent floor above the rocks. Overpriced and overhyped.

Excellent ride and fun day, great...

Excellent ride and fun day, great for families with kids. The skytram ride was super cool and fun. The view is amazing at the top, can see jasper town and all the lakes and rivers. Also the walkway and trail at the top are easy and enjoyable. Trail to summit is easy but maybe a lot for small kids. Highly recommended.
