We lived this experience. All staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Ticket prices are very reasonable. The gondola ride - WOW!! The walk around at the top is a lot of fun and the sightseeing amazing. Also saw a chipmunk and mountain goats. Souvenirs are reasonably priced and seem to be quite good quality. This is a must do experience... More

Fantastic views from the viewing platform across the valley, I visited on a clear day and found it to be breathtaking, walked up to the weather station too which is well worth the walk, just watch out for the ice!!!!! Would have liked more time at the top.

What a fantastic way to view the mountain ranges surrounding the area. It is a bit pricey, and sometimes the line up is quite long, but it is definitely worth the trip up. Just a tip: arrive when it first opens and you'll be able to get a parking spot and get on the gondola within 10 minutes. Four can... More

The trip on the gondola was the highlight of our stay. The views from the top were views that surpassed anything we have seen. 360 degrees of snow topped mountains and a beautiful view of Banff. Do not miss this!

The Gondola whisks you up to the top of the mountain, giving you amazing views on the way and from the top. There's a gift shop and cafe at the top with banff and the surrounding area set out before you - highly recommended.

We decided to walk up Sulphur mountain as we were staying in the hotel opposite. We were also told at this time of year (Sept), we were unlikely to see any bears up there so not to worry. A beautiful walk up, which I'd recommend to anyone. A little steep in places and if you don't like heights, can be... More

Eight minutes to the top for some of the best views of a lifetime. For the best photo-ops, sit on the side of the car that has the small open windows, facing down when going up and down. The terminal has the normal toilets, snack bar and gift shop, etc. They will take your photo when leaving the top, and... More

We went up the gondola in August 2014! It is beautiful at the top with great views of Banff and around. It was accessible with a wheelchair to walk around the main building but we couldn't go to the area with stairs to the other viewing area. There is a great walking path to go up and down the mountain... More

good basic meal for price. Amazing views, weather worked out very well for our dinner. no gluten free options offered. I also asked about corkage fees, as I had a special occasion bottle of wine I hoped to enjoy and they didn't seem to know what that meant, and wouldn't allow it. I should have allowed myself more time to... More
