My husband and I took the gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain and seeing it was repeatedly named as one of the top things to do in Banff.
I was surprised by the price, but thought the facilities at the top would justify the high ticket prices.
The day we went up was cloudy/rainy, so we decided to have a nice lunch in the restaurant to wait out some of the rain. I should have known to turn away when I was handed a cheaply printed paper menu. I could have made a nicer presentation on my home computer. The dinning options were very limited, and overpriced for the quality of what we got. I think we would have been better off in the cafeteria.
The hike to the main lookout was okay. Mostly just stairs, but they did a nice job making it look good. I was surprised that there wasn't anything else there though. You hike to an old weather research hit, then turn around.
I would recommend the hike to anyone, as the views are great. But it's not worth $80 for 2 to take the gondola. More
