Columbia icefield, Banff and Jasper, Alberta
The Columbia Icefield, in the boundary of Banff and Jasper National Parks, is one of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle.
It covers an area of nearly 325 square kilometres, sometimes reaching a depth of 300-360 metres.
The continuous accumulation of snow feeds eight major glaciers, including the Athabasca, Dome, and Stutfield Glaciers, all visible from the Icefields Parkway.
