A must, to visit while travelling the Rockies but be prepared for hoards of people. Visit later in the day if possible, you won't be disappointed.

Staff are very friendly.
The scenery is spectacular! It was lightly snowing when we went up and the place just looked magical.
The centre at the top is very informative and a must see.

It was fun, but nothing spectacular. Guide a top was very informative about bears, as was the one at the center at top.

We were a little disappointed to see that this gondola ride was merely an out of season ski lift . It was a quick 14 minute ride one way to a mid-mountain interpretation centre with complimentary coffee. There was another lift that went much further up the mountain so we were a little disappointed that we didn't travel right to the top. Regardless, the view was absolutely amazing!!! Gave us a wonderful perspective of where we spent the last few nights at the Chateau Lake Louise. Cost $30/person

Bought the 'ride n dine' package - was $30.95 and we found a $5 off per person voucher in one of the Banff free tourist guides in the hotel so was £25.95 each - bargain given it included a buffet breakfast.

Food was decent - some hot choices plus usual cereals, bread etc.

Took the open ski lift (but is the option of an enclosed gondola) - great views on the way up - unfortunately no bears though!

At the top the views are great - can see Lake Louise along with the surrounding mountains. We stopped in at the wildlife interpretation centre at the top - watched a couple of short films on the park and wildlife which were good. The centre also includes skins and lifesize models of some of the local wildlife which was interesting to see.

Overall a great way to spend a couple of hours when visiting the Lake Louise area.
