Fun Times at Jasper SkyTram

I just realized that I have never updated about my experience at Jasper SkyTram though I probably had uploaded dozens of pictures that I took when I was there. So, here's one for memories :)

I went to the Jasper SkyTram with my senior, A who came to visit my senior, M. It was an impromptu decision as M was the one who's supposed to go to the Japser SkyTram with A but she had to work on that day. So, I stepped in as her replacement because that's what good hosts do. We don't leave our guests alone :p

Anyway, off we went to the Jasper SkyTram on that day. I don't remember how much we paid for the tickets because this was five years ago, but we did get local discounts. The weather was not at the best that day but we just had to suck it up because that was the only day that A was free.

Tip: Dress for the weather as this is Rockies that we're talking about.

It was a 7-minute ride up to the Upper Station from the Lower Station and we gained about 1005 m in elevation. While in the tram, we were briefed about the mountains surrounding us by the employee. It was an informative ride but we couldn't take as much peek as we would whenever the employee pointed out the mountains as the tram was quite full.

Once reached the Upper Station, you'll have options to enjoy the view at the Upper Station or you can also hike for another 2 or 3 km to see the best view of Jasper. My senior and I decided to hike sebab dah alang-alang kan? We didn't go up until the peak because we were not properly dressed for the occasion. I think we only hiked half way. Itu pun makan jam juga γ… γ… 


Tip: Please bring hiking poles if you're a beginner as it is quite steep to go up to the peak.

Another reason why we decided not to hike up to the peak was because I was such a wimp that I almost cried when we were hiking. Kept telling my senior that I couldn't hike anymore because I seriously felt like dying. Susah sangat nak bernafas masa hiking tu. Not sure if it was because of the elevation gains or just because I'm suck at breathing while hiking. And, there was no proper trail so, pandai-pandailah pilih jalan and then, the whole jalan was batu. Tak ingat nama batu tu but they have specific name.

So yeah. We didn't manage to go up to the peak, but thankfully, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, we reached quite a high point where we managed to see the stunning view of Jasper. It was the best view of the best summer of my life! :)

Thank you A for not giving up on me and pushing me to keep hiking though we didn't reach the peak. You're one of the main reasons that I could see the best view of the best summer of my life. For that, I'm eternally grateful! :)

    1. Saya pun kalau ikutkan tak nak turun balik masa tu :p

      Tapi, itulah masa tu angin kuat gila-gila and tiba-tiba jadi sejuk sangat dekat atas tu. Makanya, terpaksalah kita turun balik dan mengucapkan selamat tinggal kepada view yang awesome ni :)
