“A winter wonderland in spring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We walked up the track to the base of the gondola. It was a lovely walk. We then caught gondola up to the top, the scenery is amazing. Once you get to the top take the boardwalk across the top. Words cannot express the views. It still had snow it is sooo beautiful.

“Higher than a Kite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Wow, I have been to Banff a couple of times before, but this is the first time I went up in the gondola with a friend of mine. It was a bit scary for me, who is scared of heights, but I survived it. The view up, at the top, and on the way back down is spectacular. If you go to Banff, be sure to go up the Gondola. Well worth the price.

“Pick Your Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We went on the gondola on a perfect day which was clear and the views were great. There is a walk way across from where you exit the gondola which is well worth the effort, it takes you to a higher point.

“Professionally managed,friendly staff,memorable sight seeing and people literally from all over the World enjoying it with us.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

5 star for incredible beauty, amazingly steep incline the gondola has to span and the very large excellent condition boardwalks all across the peak where you can get different views of both sides on the mountain.
A ancient park ranger station at the far end of the boardwalk and long stairs.

This was a nice ride to the top. Snow still on mountains...Liked the ride. There is a shop at the top. Didn't dislike anything.
