“view is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

we hiked up the sulphur mountain which was grueling with the switchbacks and took almost 3 hours ,but once up there had a gorgeous view of the entire area. we took the gondola one way down as we were beat and had some food and gift shop at the top. this was at sulphur springs parking lot which this may be different than banff gondola, but I couldn't find any other gondola listed as an option.
awesome and breathtaking

“An incredible experience and view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I have been up the gondola at Sulfur Mountain many times with different people. This had to be one the best trips yet. We were with American cousins who had never seen mountains like this and every thing they saw was for the first time - I think that made this trip more special than being up with other Albertans who see mountains regularly and I was able to enter into their excitement. I have to add it was a perfect day as well! The sky was clear, it was warm, not too crowded and an abundance of wildlife - okay, squirrels and a mountain goat -but that was neat! We went up on a Thursday morning, arriving at the base about 9:15 and walked directly on to the gondola - by the time we left 2 hours later there was a significant line to catch the gondola - I would recommend early in the morning for the best views (not overly crowded at the top) and shortest lines. There is a hike at the top that is definitely worth doing - take a sweater or jacket as weather at the top is very unpredictable. It is steep at $35 but one of those experiences I think you have to do at least once and most definitely take visitors to Alberta!

“Reach the top of a mountain without climbing it!! Great views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Oh the feeling of it terrifies me, but being up top makes it worth it! Go in the morning or is too busy. Cost about $100 for a family of 4 but is beautiful and an experience worth having.
