Banff Gondola
One of the "Top" Banff Attractions...
Literally!!!


Banff Gondola Banff Gondola

It may be only a 8 minute ride up to the summit of Sulphur Mountain but there's still so much to see and do!

The view just gets better every minute as you ascend! View six mountains ranges as you travel up to the top!

There's also another option...you can hike up to the summit! It will take you approx.two hours for you hikers!

Just be aware....parts of the trail can be narrow and quite steep. But there are amazing views of Banff below and green lush mountain slopes.

Make sure you have good footwear and a camera is a must. Check out my hiking tips....Taking the gondola down then gives you another good perspective.

Banff Gondola

Once the Banff skyride drops you off at the top, start by admiring the best views from the observation deck.

You can relax in comfort, have a coffee or a bite to eat in the restaurant and take in the sights.

Follow the 1 km board walk on the north side to the top of Sanson Peak. This is the site of two research facilities. In 1903 a meteorological observatory was finished. Imagine building this site back then. Take a look thru the window and see the unchanged interior!

Also at Sanson Peak is a plaque marking the site of another small laboratory built in 1956-57. This is where the National Research Council studied cosmic rays. You can just imagine the stars on a clear night!

Now if you're looking for some romantic ideas for that very special occasion. Wondering about Valentines Day ideas maybe.... How about a beautiful sunset at 7486 feet?

Take the gondola to the summit of Sulphur Mountain and enjoy Alpine Lights. It's a mountain top evening experience available on Saturday nights. A dining experience like no other, enjoy Canadian Cuisine for a very unique evening in the Canadian Rockies.

To enhance your weekend, stay at the fabulous Rimrock Resort Hotel. It's only a short walk to the The Banff Gondola. The hotel has a lovely spa, 5 star dining and a great hotel lobby lounge with a fabulous fireplace...in the winter you can't beat it.

Make the Banff Gondola a destination....
