About
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 doing
Sep 2021
Unbelievable views. Sky restaurant was a puzzle. great view, great service, bad food. Food was different than on the menu, but they did not tell us the changes. Asked for dressing on the side, got it on the salad. Got my chowder, then had to find someone to give me a spoon. They advertised a special dressing for one of the salads; they did not have it, so just put in a different one.

The Grandeur of the Rockies from the Top.
Sep 2021
My friend Bev and I took the Banff Gondola Ride. We are from Calgary, Alberta, and had not been up for years. The price was right as an Albertan. The Top was fantastic with all around views of the mountains. The photographic murals were lovely with write ups. We learn more about the history of the region. We are so spoiled to have all this in our backyard. Thank you for the National Park System.

Beautiful views, worth the trip!
Sep 2021
Very comfortable ride to the top with awesome views. We didn’t see any animals along the way. We did see the hiking paths. It would be quite the hike to do. It’s a beautiful view from atop. There are fire tables and a walking path, interpretive center and bistro.

Good overall experience.
They have floating pricing so when they they get busy they charge more. So try to book early.

A must outing when in Banff
Sep 2021
We went last week and we picked a great day as the sun was shining so it made for a great outing.It was a little expensive,but worth the money.Eat before going up as there is only one place to eat and it was expensive when you get up to the top.The senery was breath taking.I will back again .
