Owner description: 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.

The ride was amazing and supper was beyond words well worth the time and money! The prime rib supper included all the trimmings and the portions were more than enough!!

We had been here before but every time we ride to the top of the gondola the ride is just magic. Excellent views, good explanations of how the gondola was built, good hikes from the top or from the bottom. Today was a gorgeous day and that helped, but in any day the gondola is a highlight of Banff.

Great view from the mountain but the gondola is way overprized. Tourist rip-off like many other attractions. But it's clean and the restaurant up top isn't all too bad.

liked that they told us it was very cloudy up there before we bought our tickets. bought them any ways got few minutes of clear view then clouds . On cloudy days it would be nice if they discount it bet more people would buy tickets.

A little expensive per person for a gondola ride, but the views are epic. There are walkways and different spots to shoot pics from. Definitely worth it, but only go on a clear day.
