Make your spirit bright at Banff Gondola's Mountaintop Christmas

Dec 15 2018, 5:12 am

Christmas has truly come alive at the top of Sulphur Mountain, all thanks to Banff Gondola’s stunning Mountaintop Christmas event.

From now until the end of December, the Banff Gondola has turned its sky-high destination into a Winter Wonderland, complete with visits from Santa, cookie decorating, star gazing, and a mulled wine bar.

Whether you’re looking to make some unforgettable memories with the kids or planning the perfect holiday date night, the Mountaintop Christmas looks like a magical place to be.

Kids get free admission (one per adult admission) if they take the gondola up before noon, and all the Christmassy goodness that awaits at the top is built into the price of the ticket.

Sitting 7,500 ft in the sky, the air may be cold, but it also appears to be filled with that good ol’ holiday spirit.

Tickets cost $58 for adults if bought online (a savings of $6 compared to at the gate), though that drops down to $49 if you decide to head up there any time after 5 pm.

The last gondola ride down each night is scheduled for 8:30 pm most days, meaning that you’ll get a few solid hours of stargazing in before it’s time to head out.
