Owner description: 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.

“Worth It”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We almost didn't do this because it is a bit pricey, but it turned out the be the highlight of our trip! Great views. Go on a clear day and definitely make the walk all the way to the end of the path once you're up there. It was windy with blowing snow when we went and we still had a great time and the views were amazing. Don't miss this.

“Bright Lights package very worth the money”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

For my birthday, my boyfriend surprised me with the bright lights package where you ride up the gondola and then have a nice supper in the mountain top restaurant. Very romantic and the food was quite tasty too! On another trip, we walked up sulfur mountain and took the gondola back down for free in the summer time. I'd recommend the walk any day. There is a very nice little glacier pond half way up with drinkable water.

“great views”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Can't go wrong with the views from this attraction. Make sure to get there early, or go on a weekday, as with anything in Banff, it can be very busy!
