Head to the Banff Gondola any time during its normal hours of operation to begin your ride. Climb inside a comfortable, modern, 4-person gondola cabin for the trip to the top of Sulphur Mountain. As your cabin ascends high above this mountain paradise, admire bird’s eye views of Banff’s alpine scenery and meandering rivers, arriving at the summit of Sulphur Mountain.

While on top, feel free to explore the boardwalk leading to Sanson’s Peak, a national historic site, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. After your allotted time at the top, simply grab your assigned gondola back down to the base of the mountain.

Awesome views from that elevation Ride was quick and smooth for those afraid of heights. Good musician after 5:30 but couldn’t stay late to get our free shuttle back to hotel.

Fantastic ride and you can’t ask for more gorgeous views!
Gail_S
, Jul 2022
I loved the ride, both up and down, though some in my group got a little motion sickness or feared the height. The walkways and steps were very easy and safe to maneuver. Our reservations were not timed. We went around noon and the woman at the desk took a look at our voucher and let all 9 of us get right in line. I was expecting a long wait at that time of day, but we lucked out!
