    Favorite thing: The largest icefield south of Alaska the COLUMBIA ICEFIELDS cover some 389 square kilometres (233 sq. mi.). Though Hans and I did not go on it, an exciting 55 minute Snocoach Tour will take you out onto the Athabasca Glacier for an awe-inspiring glimpse of icy crevasses. Visit the Icefield Interpretive Centre for informative exhibits and slide shows.

    Fondest memory: The accompanying picture shows the part of the Columbia Icefields basin where overflow water gathers. In the background is Mount Kitchener (elevation 3505 metres)

    Snowmobile

    Favorite thing: The columbia icefields was a magnificent place to visit. We could hardly walk it was so icy. We would have loved to have had the chance of a ride on the snowmobile.

    Fondest memory: Sights and views on this cold and icy day at the Columbia Icefields.Would not have missed the opportunity for the world.

    Favorite thing: One of the few places in North America outside of Alaska where you can get up close and personal with a glacier.
