Soar to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a stunning bird's-eye view of six incredible mountain ranges. With breathtaking vistas in every direction, your adventure begins with an eight-minute journey to the summit of Sulphur Mountain in a modern, fully enclosed four-passenger gondola cabin. Glide up over the treetops to the crest of a steep-sided Rocky Mountain peak and step out into a jaw-dropping mountaintop experience at an elevation of 2,281 metres (7,486 feet). Stroll along the ridgetop boardwalk where the views get better with every step. Then warm up in our newly transformed, state-of-the-art summit facility. With new restaurants, interactive interpretive exhibits, a multi-sensory theatre and a breathtaking 360-degree rooftop observation deck, the new Banff Gondola summit heightens every sense.

Riding the gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain was a nice experience. Spectacular views of the Rockies and town of Banff . Don't miss this if you have time.

Great views but a bit too expensive and long lineups. I wished I had just hiked up/down. The views at the top were fantastic along with the interpretive center!

If the weather is clear you'll get the best stunning views from the top. When we went the weather was clear but was really very very cold and windy. So could not stand too long outside in the cold. It is definitely a must do...More

I understand this fear, and this is so personal. I do not know a way to go there other than the gondola. But if you can overcome this, you will enjoy a beautiful view and a unique experience.
