Sulphur Mountain

Sulphur Mountain


Located in the Banff National Park, this Canadian Rocky Mountain's range was originally called the Terrace Mountain. Sulphur Mountain got its name in 1916 for its thermal springs on its lower slopes. The meteorological observatory built on top of the mountain in 1903 is one of the two research facilities that is still standing. Ride a gondola to the mountaintop to get a view of the six mountain ranges or hike up the scenic hill on its many trails. There are many observation decks, restaurants and a gift shop perched on top of this mountain, offering a unique service that is truly exhilarating.
