Sit back and relax in a 4 passenger, glass enclosed gondola. Marvel at the unsurpassed view of Banff, the Bow Valley and a 360 degree view of six scenic mountain ranges from 2281m (7486ft) above sea level.  You will feel like you're on top of the world when you are standing on the spacious main level observation deck, where the optional Banff Skywalk (an 1km self-guided interpretive walkway) leads you to the Cosmic Ray Station National Historic Site and Sanson's Peak Meteorological Station.
