BANFF GONDOLA – all seasons
Visit the Banff Gondola, steps from the hotel, for year-round panoramic views of the Spray Valley and iconic peaks. Soar to the top of Sulphur Mountain at a lofty altitude of 2,281 meters, where a photographer’s paradise awaits.

Leave the crowds behind and soar to 2101m (6893 ft) on our sightseeing gondola any day of the week. Embrace the stunning scenery, grand glaciers, lush carpets of wildflowers, and crystal-clear springs and observe wildlife in their natural element.

More than just a chairlift ride, Norquay’s famous Sightseeing Chairlift is a gateway to an unforgettable, 10-minute open-air journey into the sky. Soar to nearly 7,000ft elevation, accessing the historic Cliffhouse Bistro and get ready to be “wowed.” Zip up your coziest layers and visit Norquay for a memorable sightseeing, dining and exploring day.

Enjoy 360-degree winter views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains as you ride an 8-Passenger Gondola and take in the breathtaking views of Banff National Park. The Banff Sunshine Gondola will carry you 4.6 km from our Base area to our Village area. At the Village, continue up the mountain and ride the Standish Chairlift that will take you to the top of Mt. Standish. Experience your surroundings from the highest sightseeing elevation in Banff and Lake Louise.
