Stargazing at the Banff Gondola

The winter sky becomes alive at dark, and it’s just that much more spectacular when you’re standing mountaintop at 2200 metres. After dinner at Sky Bistro, make sure to head to the rooftop and join astronomers from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Calgary for an amazing stargazing adventure. Learn through interactive exhibits and games for kids and young-at heart adults. After, warm up with a night cap from our signature after dinner taste and drink menu.
