Events Description


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

It’s the season of magic and wonder at the Banff Gondola. Starting November 16, load up in your mountaintop sleigh and soar to where Christmas delights and Santa’s Workshop await at the summit. Decorate cookies in the bakeshop, write letters to and take photos with Santa, play some exciting games or watch a film in our theatre. The Banff Gondola is where Christmas memories happen. Exclusive extended activities from December 26 – 30.

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

This year, we’re welcoming Santa to Banff with a swanky new ride. And you and your family could join the fun with his Elves! Introducing our newest experience, the Elf Express!

Get picked up from your downtown Banff hotel* in a Christmas decorated coach. Enjoy a fun storytelling ride to the Banff Gondola with Santa’s personal helper at the mic. Then, soar up to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience all the Mountaintop Christmas activities including a picture with Santa. Wrap things up as you catch your ride back to your hotel.

Be the first to join Santa and his helpers in this new Christmas adventure this holiday season!
