The 15 minute ride up the North American Chairlift at Banff Norquay is a great summer activity for your guests to check out. It is without a doubt the best view you can get overlooking the town of Banff, the Bow Valley and well beyond to the Spray Valley and offers a very unique perspective of Cascade Mountain and a whole lot more.
The ride up is incredibly smooth, the mountain air is as fresh as can be and the views are remarkable! It is well worth the time at the top in the summer months to take in the views and have a chance to eat and have a drink at the newly remodeled 1950's historic teahouse that is the Cliffhouse Bistro at the top. Craft beer, Tapas, and some time in the sun at the top of Norquay is a great experience.
