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.  

Ride on the 4-seater, glass-enclosed cable car to the summit, soaring 2,282 feet (698m) up to a total elevation of  7486 feet or 2,281 metres above sea level. Switch sides with your group to get the full view perspective!

Have you ever heard of Fireweed? Well, it is a symbol of resilience and renewal and can be located in sunny open areas in Banff and beyond. With its rapid growth after fires and nutritious benefits, it truly is nature's healer. 

Mark "photographing this plant" off of your bucket list this summer. 🌿

Are you visiting us on one of our tours soon? 

Our team has curated 3 things to know before visiting Banff National Park in May!

1. Pack layers! While temperatures can be warmer during the day, it tends to drop at night. Be prepared for temperature changes by packing layers to accommodate both. 

2. May is in the shoulder season. The park is less crowded for a more enjoyable experience. Take in the sights and sounds of nature with a more intimate experience.

3. May means more options. While snow has started to thaw in lower altitudes, many of the ski lodges are still in service through the middle of the month. You could quite literally go on a hiking and ski adventure on the same day.
