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.

There was a couple from India, who has never seen snow. we so enjoyed watching them. It was cold and snowy, but fun. this was a repeat for us, but had never been up there in the wintertime.
the Starbucks in their building could use some cleaning up.
Dirty, dirty furniture and not up to par with other Starbucks.

Though pricey, well worth the trip up the mountain. Loved the view from the top and seeing the old weather station was really informative.

A couple of days ago my husband and I hiked up to the Gondola and were surprised to learn it would cost $17 p/p ($35 total with tax) to ride the Gondola down (normally a free ticket in off season if you hike up as the trip down is maybe 4 minutes). We decided to try it as we were exhausted from the hike and figured the view would be worth it. Negative... we did a lot hiking in Banff and compared to what we saw from the trails, it was NOT worth the ticket price. We saw much better views on the hike to Lake Agnes and they were free for as long as you wanted to look. In short, high cost, low value, especially if you are a hiker.

A little bit pricey ($40/adult for roundtrip) but it was worth seeing what's up there. Very breathtaking scene! I love to just sit somewhere, relax and enjoy the Canadian Rockies view. There is also a souvenir shop up there.

perfect trip up to the top of Sulphur Mountain. Once you get to the top there is a very well maintained hiking path that leads to another peak. Excellent views and a gift shop and small cafe await for you at the top!
