We really enjoyed this day! Obviously exciting going up to the top of the mountain in a gondola, but all the extra fun Christmas things they had was amazing! Santa was there, cookie decorating and ornament making. Cool Christmas cartoon and frozen maple treats. We walked the boardwalk and went all the way up to the top of Samson Peak. Breath taking views! My husband and both daughters (aged 9 & 15) really enjoyed this day. Amazing gift shop and also Starbucks service was great. Staff was very welcoming. Totally worth it!

Very nice activity - A must do! Sublime view of Banff! Meet on the top floor - Big glass polar bear with fireplace and chairs to sit on - Great view too! Do not forget to take the long wooden staircase (like a small lighthouse) to also have another view - Magnificent! BOOK a meal at SKY BISTRO in advance! There is a DINNER + GONDOLA package!

There was a delay with the extreme cold. However, when they got going, we were guaranteed first priority for boarding according to our booked time.

Such an amazing experience! So worth the money, incredible views everywhere you look

Amazing views and wonderful staff, definitely worth it and will go again!
