Cable Car
圣热尔韦昂瓦列尔周勃I came to Banff in the summer a few years ago and prepared to take the cable car to overlook the panoramic view of Banff. At that time, the service staff at the cable car ticket office took us to the monitoring screen and suggested that we be cautious because the visibility on the day was not good. But I was impressed by the seriousness of Canadians. This time I was finally seated, and I could have a panoramic view of Banff town.

Banff welcomes its ‘short spring’ from May to the middle of June with the teeming up of the forest and with the occasional grizzly bear passing through; it entails a rather breathtaking moment. Summer is from mid-June to August and it is the ideal time for outdoor activities. With the sunny weather, you could stroll through the parks, go rock climbing, boating, and rafting. Autumn sets in from September to November, and with turning of the season the roads and sightseeing spots are starting to close down. You have to put on more clothing if you are planning to go outdoors. Mid-November to April begins the long winter season. This is best period of time for winter activities like skiing, ice climbing and soaking in the hot springs. In April, you could also watch the awakening of the hibernating bears in the mountains.
