The town of Banff lies in the shadow of Sulphure Mountain and to get a breathtaking view of the beauty that surrounds Banff there's no better way than riding the Gondolas. The first and only bi-cable gondola in Canada was built in 1958. The gondolas offer spectacular 360-degree views of the magnificent peaks all around the town-site. Our 8 minute ride took us up towards the summit and deposited us at the first level of the observation tower. We then did a hike up the one kilometer Vista Trail Boardwalk to Sanson's Peak, a national historic site, the cosmic ray station and an old weather observatory. The Gondolas rise 698 meters (2,290 ft) up the eastern slope of Sulphure Mountain to the 2,281 meter (7,484 ft) summit ridge. The sites are spectacular.
