Back to my first Winterlude post, when sister L asked about the gondola, I only came up with Sulphur Mountain in Banff. I knew Sunshine Village operated a gondola for skiers and snow boarders in the winter and sightseers in the summer. I did not know they also also offered a sightseeing option in the winter.
After a bit of research, I determined that us Seniors (60 and older) could take the gondola up Sunshine for $40 CAD plus tax. Once at the top, you could also ride the Standish and Angel quads to the top of each lift for the views. While the pass did not permit you to wear any ski equipment, they allowed us to take a small day pack and our trekking poles. Given there was 6 feet of settled snow on the slopes, stepping off the groomed areas could cause a sinking feeling.
