Gondolas & Tramways Attractions & Entertainment

A gondola or tramway ride brings you the view that mountains have of mountains. All the glory, none of the actual climbing. • Summit: Banff’s gondola was Canada’s first when it opened in 1959 on Sulphur Mountain. The eight-minute ride over towering pines into mountain peaks is just the start. The view from the top is like being at the edge of the earth, but the start of adventure. Grab lunch then hike the boardwalk. • Jasper: At the top of Whistlers Mountain, you’re at the centre of 360 degrees of Rocky Mountain peaks. Plan, like, an hour for photos. As if there’s a better backdrop than where the mountains meet the clouds.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Get a new perspective on the town of Jasper and the surrounding mountain ranges as the Jasper SkyTram whisks you up Whistler's Mountain. At an elevation of 2,277 metres (7,472 feet), the view from the top offers stunning mountain vistas of six different mountain ranges, and amazing views of the town, rivers & glacial fed lakes below. On a clear day, you can even see the white pyramid of Mount Robson in nearby British Columbia. Follow the 1.2 km hiking trail to the summit of the mountain to enjoy an unobstructed 360 degree view, or stick close to the upper station and enjoy the best views of Canada's largest Rocky Mountain National Park while dining mountaintop at the Summit Restaurant.
