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 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.

This was a wonderful experience! The staff was helpful and competent, and did a nice job of describing the scenery as we rose to the top. Well worth the money. Stop and eat at the cafe when you're done hiking - a good meal and a killer view!
