This place is awesome, it is quite expensive for a ride to the mountain but otherwise it will take you like 3 hours to get to the top, the ride is like 6 to 10 minutes and the views are spectacular, once you are on the top you can be outside or have a cup of coffee enjoying the view... More

Great gondola ride way up to the mountain top. Could not believe how high up it took us. Great pictures all the way up. Then there was a stairway -easily waled at your own pace - and places to stop and view or take pictures. We made it to the lookout building on top. Worth it !!! (Good exercise)

The Banff gondola was very fun. Clean and well managed. 360° views. Really liked the directional signs around the viewing deck telling how far different cities were from that point. This is a must when visiting Banff!

I am not a fan of heights unless I am on solid ground, but, I wanted to propose on top of Sulphur Mountain so I sat in the Gondola and starred at my feet for 8 minutes. That is how long it takes to get from the base to the top of the mountain. I am told it was quite... More

We were very impressed with the way Brewsters managed this attraction. The Gondola takes you up to the top of Sulphur Mountain, just outside Banff (you can get a bus to it from the main street in Banff). The first time we arrived, it was wet, and the people manning the ticket office were telling people the weather was too... More

A trip in the Gondola was quite smooth considering the height you have to travel up and it is well worth the ride . It is quite a walk to the summit where the observation for weather post was but it is well boarded all the way, with seats for a rest and other areas to take in the views... More

You will never spend better money. The ride is smooth and comfortable. In just under ten minutes you are surrounded by breathtaking views of the entire region. The decks and wide, safe and comfortable walkways facilitate countless vantage points. The air is as fresh and clean as any you will ever breathe. Do this.

Nice ride up the side of the mountain.Once you get to the top there is a beautiful view of Banff and a 360 degree view of the whole valley.There is a restaurant and gift shop to relax and eat or get your souveniers.Well worth the cost

We rode the Banff Gondola to the top of the mountain, where we then walked a well-maintained boardwalk to the true summit of Sulfur Mountain. Stunning views everywhere! Many different "patios" along the boardwalk offered stunning views where guests can stop, take photos, and take in the beauty. If you don't feel up to walking the boardwalk, a deck encircles... More
