We took a short road trip to Golden BC to spend an afternoon checking out the Golden Skybridge. Plus stayed a couple of nights at the Mount Royal Hotel in the town of Banff and while we were in Banff we took a ride up the famous Banff Gondola to take in some of the breathtaking views atop Sulphur Mountain so in this episode we’ll play the conversations we had with the folks from the Banff Jasper Collection who hosted us. First we’ll play our chat with David Barbour, the GM of the Banff Gondola who tells about behind how the Banff Gondola began and what you need to know when visiting the Banff Gondola. One of the historic buildings located right on Banff Avenue is the Mount Royal Hotel so while staying there we met up with the VP of Operations for the Banff Jasper Collection, Alex Grant who shared some of the colorful past of the hotel. Then later we’ll share our adventure in Golden BC checking out the Golden Skybridge, which is way more than a suspension bridge with spectacular views stretched over the Columbia Valley.
