About
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.

It was by far the best experience I had, definitely a must do on your trip to Banff, the views at the top of the mountain is impressive and overwhelming. Also make sure to take advantage of the gondola and lunch at the sky bistro package it worth every penny!

Night rise gondola trip was a great experience. We went as two couples and had a fantastic time. I would strongly recommend doing the night rise to anybody.

We took the gondola up Sulphur Mountain for the 1st time in many years to see the Nightrise presentation, which was fantastic. Looking forward to a summer trip up next.

I did the Banff gondola, the Jasper, Lake Louise, the Sea to Sky, the Whistler, the Peak to Peak and the Black Comb gondolas, and maybe a few more and this is one of my favorite's ones. The gondola cabinet is a bit too small and it can get really really hot during the summer but the peak view is astonishing.
Positive: good structure up there
Negative the price and the conditions of the cabin.

Must see, breathtaking views! It was like being on top of the world! I was overcome by the immense beauty. The viewing platform is gorgeous with fire pits burning and a lovely coffee bar serving delicious hot beverages and freshly made cookies! Make time for this as you will not have the opportunity see this scenery and photograph such an incredible vista anywhere else in Banff!
