Overview

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.

Well worth the cost of going up - especially on a clear day. See for miles. Incredible views. Take your camera and get on up there. Good cafe also so you can stop for a break and coffee or food.

Amazing views. We timed it the day after a good snowfall, around sunset. It was very cold outside but fine with the right clothing. It was very memorable to walk up to the cosmic ray station. Highly recommend this as a destination.

While not cheap, the view from the gondolla - particularly at sunset made it worthwhile. There is an expansive walkway to allow you to take in the view from a number of vantage points.
