       JASPER TRAM

 
YOU CAN SEE 30 LAKES FROM THE SUMMIT!
(Also Called Whistlers Tram)

The Longest aerial tramway in Canada features a seven minute trip (2,500 meters) up to "the Whistlers". There are boardwalks around the upper terminal, a barbeque deck and an amazing 45 minute hike to the summit of the mountain. The views are from above the timberline and the valleys below seem as distant and mystical as the moon. Maximum elevation is 8,100 feet and the air is crisp and clean.



How do you get to the tram? Drive west and then south from Jasper 3.5 miles on the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93). The Whistlers Mountain Road turnoff is on the right as you are traveling south. 2.5 miles up the road brings you to the lower loading platform. This is a nice place for a picnic or quick lunch while you are waiting for the next tram. The tram is open mid-March to October.
