Located just outside of town the Banff
is short, easy drive.
The upper terminal is 7,500 feet above sea level
and the modern 4-person gondolas deliver you to the top in only 7 minutes.
Hardly enough time to enjoy the spectacular views of the Bow Valley and Spray Valley
displayed before you.
For the more energetic we recommend riding the cable
cars up to the summit and then walking down. Those in good physical
condition can walk both ways.
Sulphur Mountain Gondola actually sits atop Anson
Peak, named after the meteorologist who visited the peak more than
1,000 times at the beginning of the 20th century. Now that's
a dedicated tourist!
Walk the very easy boardwalk to Samson's Peak where
you find the historic Cosmic Ray Station.
