Bus pick up is at Montgomery Community Centre Parking Lot. Bus departs from Montgomery at 8:00 am sharp.
Please note that Hikes #3, 4, and 5 involve getting to the top via the Gondola. Gondola cost is $65 for Adults and $59 for Seniors. You purchase your ticket for the Gondola inside the Reception Centre.
Bus Fare $25 plus $10 if you don’t have a National Park Pass (you pay the Gondola fare separately at the Sunshine Reception centre)
6 Hours Hiking Time. Note if riding the Gondola you must allow for the transit time from the top of the Gondola and back to the parking lot where the bus remains. Note late return time to Calgary – likely about 6:30 PM.
FLOWERS UPDATE: reportedly, they are now a little past their prime due to some really hot days of late.
Bugs: – are fierce! Bring repellent.
