“My Guests from England were Wowed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The ride was scenic, but the view from up on high was truly stunning. I think a sunny winter day, as we had, must be the best. Make sure you go up to the weather station on the boardwalk. Take your time. Be prepared for wind, and for it perhaps to be warmer than you expect. Don't expect anything special in the cafe. It's less than basic, and staffed by people who appear not to care. Check out the webcam (google will get it for you) before going, so you know if it will be worth it. It's not cheap, so that will be a real help. But do go if you can. It's stunning up there.

“You just have to go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

We visited the gondola on our last whole day of our holiday. The views are spectacular, I almost used a whole 16gb memory card on my camera. You really need to go here if you visit Banff.

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Clear at the bottom and then it snowed at the top - very beautiful. Some climbing stairs but not too strenuous. Worth the ride up.

“excellent views, nice walks at the top”

this was magic - great views and a good walk with lots of different viewing platforms. Didn't feel too busy. Restaurant food was ok and reasonably priced.
