Nature's Light Show

The Banff Gondola summit is home to a thousand magic moments. This winter, you can add many more as you revel in the illuminated mountains during our Alpenglow Festival (Fridays and Saturdays, from February 15 – April 13). Whether it's cozying up around our rooftop firepits with special Alpenglow cocktails, snacking on a delicious s'more or enjoying live entertainment with family and friends, celebrate the moment and enjoy the wonder of nature's light show.

As the sun descends beyond the horizon, radiating the surrounding snow-capped peaks, the Banff Gondola summit becomes your stargazing platform to marvel at the dark skies and luminous stars.
