Meet the 2023 Winner: Nightrise, an Immersive Storytelling Experience

Category: Activities & Attractions

The Banff Gondola by Pursuit is an attraction located in Beautiful Banff National Park. The Nightrise experience honors the sacred mountains- a place of gathering since time immemorial for many, including the Stoney People. In Nightrise’s conception, the team partnered with the Stoney Nakoda Nation to educate guests of the people of Treaty 7’s land which included using traditional words and explanations of the mountain’s evening and winter wonders. 

These wonders include Alpenglow, Diamond Dust, Frosted Waves and Cosmic Rays; all natural phenomena explained through the eyes and voices of Stoney language and context. 

Pursuit is a collection of inspiring and unforgettable experiences in iconic places including Alaska, Montanta, The Canadian Rockies, Vancouver, Reykjavik, Las Vegas and soon to be Toronto. The vision is to be the world’s leading provider of attraction and hospitality experiences, with a focus on connecting guests with the natural world, celebrating our past as well as striving to keep our history vibrant and meaningful.
