Getting to Sky Bistro at the Banff Gondola

Sky Bistro sits on the summit of Sulphur Mountain and is accessible by the Banff Gondola. To access Sky Bistro choose from our Sky Experience package or purchase a separate admission ticket to the Banff Gondola.

Please arrive early to ensure enough time to take in the breathtaking views on the ride up and explore all that the Banff Gondola has to offer.

The Banff Gondola is serviced year-round by Bow Valley Roam Public Transit. Buses run regularly, with stops along Banff Avenue. Contact ROAM Transit for information at 403.762.0606.

From Banff Ave, travel south to the end, turn left after the bridge onto Spray Ave. Stay right onto Mountain Ave and follow that to the end where you will find the Banff Gondola parking lot. Please note parking at the Banff Gondola is very limited.

The free Banff Gondola shuttle picks up from the Banff Visitor Information Centre, Elk + Avenue Hotel (until October 14) and Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel (until September 30). The return to shuttles departs from the Banff Gondola parking lot every 20–40 minutes (depending on destination). See shuttle schedule below.
