We had been up the Gondola of other occasions but they have improved facilities at the summit since we were there last. It is quite pricey for a short Gondola ride so choose your day wisely and go early when the light is right. We went up on Christmas morning and had breakfast in the restaurant with a window seat,...

The Banff Gondola is a well oiled attraction and the staff were very polite and efficient. The views experienced at the top are nothing short of stunning and for our children, the ability to play with snow for the very first time, will always leave us with fond memories of our time here.

Got to do the stargazing which was incredible. Got to see constellations through a wonderful telescope thanks to people who love stars. They were happy to explain what they were showing us. They had hot chocolate and heaters outside so you could warm up. The entire centre has been redone and is incredible. Definitely an experience to be had.

Went During the winter time. Took the Hike up! Roughly 2 hours, but the trip down is free! When you get up to the top, there is a very exciting view of both Banff and the mountains around it.

What a view. Go early this place loads up with tourists fast. We were there two minutes after it opened and walked right through with no lines. Took our time at the top of the mountain. Took lots of photos and saw mountain goats, elk, and big horn sheep , oblivious to all the cellphone photography. It was the perfect... More
