Ride the Sunshine Summer Gondola – with its spacious 8 passenger cabins – to the Sunshine Village area. At the Village, stop at our interpretive centre before embarking into an exploration of the more than 12km of marked trails that wind their way through waterfalls, lakes, and flower-filled meadows. You can also take part in one of our hosted trail tours. Sunshine Summer Gondola and Sightseeing Chairlift will take the whole family to the “Top of the World" for an unobstructed 360 degrees view of one of the most outstanding areas in Banff National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
The Jasper SkyTram whisks you up Whistler’s Mountain to an elevation of 2,263 metres, showing you stunning vistas over mountain ranges stretching up to 80 kilometres away. On a clear day, you can even see the white pyramid of Mount Robson in nearby British Columbia. Interpretive exhibits explain the high alpine environment, and a hiking trail leads you to the summit of the mountain. Gift shops and licensed dining facilities are also available.
