Discover all-new experiences at Canada’s iconic mountaintop attraction

Journey to the top of the Banff Gondola to see a whole new side of Sulphur Mountain and the Canadian Rockies. We’ve completely rebuilt, redesigned and reimagined our mountaintop experience, creating a world-class indoor experience that equals the awe-inspiring ridgetop boardwalk 2900 ft. above Banff. From new restaurants and interactive exhibits to a multisensory theatre and a breathtaking 360-degree rooftop observation deck, the all-new Banff Gondola experience heightens every sense.

Bring Your Walking Shoes
Immerse yourself in the history of early explorers on the 1 km, self-guided interpretive Sulphur Mountain Boardwalk, where you’ll ascend to the high-altitude Sulphur Mountain Cosmic Ray Station (a National Historic Site of Canada).
Sunsets & Stargazing
At the summit, life begins at dusk. Take in a gentle sunset followed by special stargazing events and a relaxing stop at a rooftop fire pit. Indoors, you’ll discover both amazing full meals and tasty snacks.
Skip the Trail Mix
With three great restaurants to choose from ranging from a café, to grab and go, to fine dining, you can save your appetite for the good stuff at the top. 
Be on the lookout for local wildlife, including Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, ravens and jays such as the Clark’s nutcracker and the Canada (gray). Please do not feed or approach the wildlife.
