We took the Gondola but I think next time we will hike. Just so much beauty up there... Even a bit of snow where we made a tiny snowman! Take your time and explore, quite a bit of hiking but worth it.

Considering I got engaged at the top of this mountain I am a bit biased! Spectacular views, we were lucky enough that it snowed while we were up there too. Amazing experience, highly recommend for the view at the top!

We arrived early as part of a tour group and so our tour director knew it got busy and it was well worth the trip up there. We had an absolutely stunning day and did the climb up to the weather station at the top....More

We took the gondola ride up Sulphur Mountain. It is a pretty quick ride. We got out and looked around and then took the stairs up to the cosmic ray station. There was snow on several of the steps and platforms on the way up....More

Absolutely, you can buy one way down no problem. Can't remember the cost and take about 9 minutes with an option of a picture purchase, or essential and no hassle. Enjoy
