Soar to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a stunning bird's-eye view of six incredible mountain ranges. With breathtaking vistas in every direction, your adventure begins with an eight-minute journey to the summit of Sulphur Mountain in a modern, fully enclosed four-passenger gondola cabin. Glide up over the treetops to the crest of a steep-sided Rocky Mountain peak and step out into a jaw-dropping mountaintop experience at an elevation of 2,281 metres (7,486 feet). Stroll along the ridgetop boardwalk where the views get better with every step. Then warm up in our newly transformed, state-of-the-art summit facility. With new restaurants, interactive interpretive exhibits, a multi-sensory theatre and a breathtaking 360-degree rooftop observation deck, the new Banff Gondola summit heightens every sense.

Easy access to the top of the mountain with views 360 degrees all around you. Busy at times so make sure you leave enough time for queues up and down.

We arrived about 8:30 am and the crowds were just beginning to build. Good to go early to avoid ticket lines at the bottom and crowds at the top. Be sure to go on the walkway at the top for stunning views!

I went up there, but the weather was cloudy and windy (in mid July), so did not feel so special with this place. But I can imagine it has gorgeous view from the top WHEN the weather is good.

What you see at the top is worth the wait. But tickets in advance if possible. And parking can be difficult.

The gondola was a quick walk from the hotel. It is so well organized and easy to sign up online! It is very efficient and the staff is so helpful. Once at the top the views were spectacular!

We couldn't have enjoyed our trip up and down any more. The view from the top is fantastic. We appreciated that they put a maximum of four adults in each car and at least when we were there, they didn't force people from different groups...More

Combine your visit with a meal at the top. Less crowded in early evening. Parking is a problem earlier in the day

Not cheap but a trip not to be missed great views from the top of the Gondola ride. Great views of the area

Smooth easy ride with great views at the top. A bit expensive and we would have liked to have spent more time at the top but you are given a return time whether you are finished or not.

It takes 5 minutes to reach top of mountain in a 4 seater Gondola. View from top is good but during summer you can't see ice on surrounding mountains. But good view of valleys, river and city is there.

Thank Krishna D
