The price for the Banff Gondola is pretty steep ($20). The gondolas themselves seat four people and take 8 minutes to reach the summit, which is about 10,000 feet above sea level. From the top, there is a 360-degree view of the area, including the Fairmont Banff Springs and the city of Banff. Although there are signs at the top warning against feeding the mountain goats, we didn't see any! Only make the trip if the day is sunny; otherwise, you won't be able to see a thing.
