Banff Gondola in Winter

Get ready for Banff’s must-see spot for any new visitor or visiting guest to Banff!  Head to the top of Sulphur Mountain with the Banff Gondola for the jaw-dropping panoramic views of five mountain ranges and views of Banff Town below. In addition, there lots to do when you reach the top.

YES! The Banff Gondola is open in winter!

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in the morning and visit the top Banff bucket list destinations in town. The Banff Gondola has a winter hours schedule, but when you tour with us, you’ll have a reserved time, so you don’t have to wait in line.
