Take the Mt Norquay Rd out of Banff for a fantastic chair lift ride at Mt Norquay. In the winter this services skiers but in summer it provides fantastic panoramic views of Banff and the Canadian Rockies.

Take a 15 minutes chairlift ride at Banff Mt. Norquay and experience spectacular view of Banff town site, Bow River Valley, Mt. Rundle, etc... (Mt. Norquay is a ski resort in winter).

Amazing, $20 chairlift to the top and the views are amazing. There is a nice little licensed cafe at the top as well, well worth a visit. Follow the signs across the other side of the highway from Banff.

We drove up Mount Norquay and were very impressed by the wonderful view over the mountains and Banff nestled in the valley below. There was a couple of spots you could stop and take in the grandeur. We were also spoilt by having a herd of Mountain Goats grazing beside the road.

Do not spend $40 to take Brewsters gondola, go to the Norquay ski area right out of town and pay $15 for seniors. Unbelievable views and very friendly staff. Restaurant and bar has been reopened after many years offering drinks and meals. Also very good. It is a "locals" place and was great, great, great. Also no line and plenty... More

This Mountain had better views than sulphur Mt. The chair lift was $20., then discounted to $15. For seniors. The restaurant up top, Cliff house Bistro had a cheese platter to share with drinks. Reasonably priced. Views are incredible. There is public transportation from Banff to the lift. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were very reluctant to take the open chairlift to the top of Mt. Norquay. My husband would have rather gone on an enclosed gondola ride. Honestly, when you are at the bottom looking up at Mt. Norquay, it is a bit frightening. We decided to go and it was a little scary at first but well... More

I decided to turn into the Mt. Norquay exit just for the heck of it. Glad I did because I had a near spiritual experience when I took the chair lift to the top of the mountain. It was scary and exhilarating. The views on the mountain top were straight out of a dream. There's a restaurant at the top.... More
