We bought the tickets for the gondola and the clerk said we couldn't walk around much but what she didn't tell us was it didn't go the whole way to the top of the mountain. If we had known we wouldn't have bought the tickets....More

Fantastic ride. Beautiful view. Courteous and understanding (for those a little squeamish with the ride/height) staff, Nice hike/walk at the top. A must do.

We had planned to take the gondola and eat on the mountain but every restaurant were closed (they opened in the middle of June). Only one restaurant was opened at the foot of the mountain and was rather expensive in my opinion (value wise). But...More

I went in the winter and it wasn't very good because it's crowded with snowboarders and skiers. Don't get me wrong, the view is absolutely beautiful, but once you're on the top there is no where to go. I got a groupon for 2 tickets...More

We were told before going there that the Lake Louise would be a tear drop. We did see it. Fascinating! A buffet lunch included, nice! Didn't get to see bears that's okay. Wonderful experience.

The gondola ascends the mountain across the Bow valley from Lake Louise, as part of the ski area. It's not very close to Lake Louise as the name might imply although Chateau Lake Louise and Lake Louise are visible far across the valley. Nevertheless, the...More

A big step up from the old exposed slatted chairs. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the bears photographed by the summer visitors but we were happy to soak in the views whilst protected from the elements.

When does the lake Louise Gondola re-open for the summer? I will be there in May and would like to know if it will be open then.

I am not really sure of that.. heard disability assistance pets are allowed....best to call Lake Louise Gondola as they would be the experts.
We are visiting Banff for 3 nights from 15th to 18th October 2016 and plan to visit Lake Louise for a day. Will the Gondolas' still be operational then as website says they close October 10th?
