The Jasper Sky Tram was a highlight of our weekend getaway to Jasper a few weekends ago. The best part? They let Daphne on the tram!
Jasper Sky Tram
The hotel we stayed at (following all COVID-19 protocols) had a voucher for $50.00 off a handful of attractions in the area, one of them being the tram. That, paired with Daphne’s ticket being $5.45, we signed up for a flight around 10am on Sunday. The day was beautiful and full of so much fresh and clean mountain air.
Before we headed up the mountain we did check out the mechanical room – look at all those moving parts!
Okay, now for the good stuff – the 2000m up the mountain side.
Don’t get me wrong, everything is safe and secure, yet you’re still on a mountain and there were moments where all I could think of was what it would be like to roll and roll and keep rolling until – poof, off the side of the mountain. Scary? Yes. Was Daphne scared? No. Not one bit.
Okay, on to our Afghan Hound who showed us both up with her hiking ability. Look at her, jumping up on rocks and all. Stop showing off, pup!
Overall, we had a great time. Windy, yes. Fun – so much fun. The view is incredible and the mountains have a way of really grounding you and putting things (like busy work schedules) into perspective. Get out there and breath in the goodness.
Oh, and this pup is the mountain champion!
We had such a wonderful time hiking – look at those big smiles!
Here’s the pup on the tram – checking out the view and having the best time.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit, be sure to check out the Jasper Sky Tram – it’s worth the 7 minute trip up the mountain.
