Banff Jasper Collection

You'll love Christmas on our mountaintop

It’s the season of magic and wonder. And it’s back at the Banff Gondola.

We’ve loaded up the mountaintop sleigh with Christmas delights—and even brought in Santa’s Workshop!

Plus, there’s a bakeshop and Elk Interactive Centre straight from the North Pole. It’s fun for kids of all ages.

Then, get cozy later in the day as things slow down and the stars begin to sparkle. We’re brewing our own mulled wine and other delicious drinks. Take a blanket and cuddle up around a fire on our rooftop deck, under a glistening galaxy at 7,500 feet.

Whether you want romantic escape or family adventure, the Banff Gondola is where Christmas memories happen.


Access to all Mountaintop Christmas activities included with admission
and kids go free before noon – every day!
