Banff Gondola, Banff, Alberta
Mountain Avenue, Banff, Alberta T0L 0| Map |
The Canadian Rockies offer some of the most scenic vistas in the world, and the Banff Gondola puts them on display for everyone to see from the top of Sulphur Mountain. Year round, the gondola whisks four people at a time to an elevation of 2,281m (7,486 ft) in about eight minutes, granting access to a range of mountaintop activities. Families will marvel at the views of the surrounding area from view decks and the Summit Ridge interpretive boardwalk. In addition, parents and kids alike will enjoy learning about the area on the 1 kilometer Banff Skywalk that leads to the Cosmic Ray Station National Historic Site of Canada and the historic Sanson's Peak Meteorological Station. A ride on the Banff Gondola and visit to the mountaintop gives families a chance to feel like they are ''on top of the world'' in the Canadian Rockies.
