Sulphur Mountain Cosmic Ray Station

Located at the top of Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park, and reached by a short hike after riding the Banff Gondola, the Sulphur Mountain Cosmic Ray Station has been a National Historic Site since 1982. It was originally constructed in 1956, along with 9 other sites across Canada to monitor cosmic rays, however this station was viewed as most important because of its elevation (7,490 feet). The Cosmic Ray Station ceased operation in 1978, and today is a great location to take in a view.
