The views from Sulphur Mountain

The weather cleared on Friday morning just long enough for us to make our way to the top of Sulphur Mountain.  This was one of the “must do” things on our itinerary.  The day before, when we had a downpour in the Banff townsite, heavy snow fell starting about half way up the mountain.  Here’s a view of the snow line on the mountain:

Looking back at the gondola arrival site, you can get a sense of the amount of fresh snow that fell in the previous day:
