It certainly is news to me that the Icefields Parkway is in British Columbia. They must have moved the border somewhat to the east, WHAT!!!!!????? I would appreciate some kind of an explanation please. My email add is [email protected] Thank-you and Best Regards of the day Kent Bastien
This paragraph is invaluable! You can't find anything anywhere else on the Internet (in less than 10 minutes of Googling) that points out the winter travel info for the Icefields Parkway:
The road itself is kept open year-round, but during the winter months it is extremely snowy and none of the tourist attractions along its length will be open or able to be visited. The gas-station, store and tourist centre will all be closed for the winter, so there is nowhere to get food or petrol on the Parkway at that time. In fact, the road is often closed due to weather during the winter. Check with park officials for the road conditions before you choose to travel it and be well prepared for winter conditions on the trip.
Just wanted to say thanks!! --220.127.116.11 14:33, 19 November 2010 (EST)
