Are you travelling to Alberta any time soon?
There’s a new attraction at the Banff Gondola that brings to light the stunning Canadian Rockies and the town’s Indigenous roots.

Nightrise leverages light, sound, special effects and video projections to tell its story. This is more than a light show, it holds cultural meaning. The educational component of the experience is developed around the Stoney Nakoda Nation, the original “people of the mountains.” Historically, neighbouring Indigenous peoples designated the Stoney Nakoda as “Assiniboine,” which means “stone people” or “people who cook with stones.” Throughout the multimedia show, spectators learn about the Stoney Nakoda Nation’s ties to these lands and their cultural impact in Banff. 

Everyone knows about the beautiful scenery of the Canadian Rockies, but this view is different.

In collaboration with hospitality group Pursuit, Montreal studio Moment Factory transforms the surroundings into a fully immersive experience. The mountain and night sky are illuminated by the vibrant lighting, complimented by original soundscapes.

The Banff Gondola takes you to the summit of Sulphur Mountain, where you can enjoy Rockies-inspired food and drinks.
Tickets are on sale from October 19 on starting from $56.
Nightrise runs from December 2, 2021, to March 12, 2022
