About
Sulphur Mountain summit is easily accessible via the Banff Gondola. The ride takes just 8 minutes—you’ll get to enjoy the amazing views of six mountain ranges as you coast over the treetops. Once you’re at the 7,486-foot-high mountaintop, take a stroll along the ridgetop boardwalk before spending the afternoon at the multi-sensory theater, rooftop observation deck, restaurant and interactive exhibits. Buy your tickets online to skip the line. For fewer crowds, plan to be there before noon or late afternoon. You can get there from downtown Banff by public bus. – Tripadvisor

We loved it so much we started looking at real estate for retirement. The fresh mountain air, the views that never get boring and that you can loose yourself in for hours.

A very pretty place. A lot smaller than I thought it would be. the park at the bottom of the high street is lovely. There are many tourist type shops along the high street and a few places to eat.

The Gondola ride was superb, with unmatched views of the mountains and we felt safe.
Upon reaching the summit, more surprise awaits us. The boardwalk was spectacular, walking alongside mountains, majestic views of the Canadian Rockies. There were multiple viewing floors in the summit building. To cap it off on Level 4, marshmallows were served. Roasting them over a fire while taking in the view.

The Gondola was a bit scary but thrilling, and it was beautiful up top. The facility is lovely! They have lots of seating and multiple viewing decks. My toddler got a bit bored as toddlers do but she did love the Gondola ride, she wanted to do it again. I personally loved the views and the air.
