Access Issue: Ice Field Snocoaches gate Details
The Ice Field Snocoaches gate is closed during buisness hours, but the gate is open in the wee hours. This allows for a alpine start, but you may have to wait for a bus to open the gate to get out during the day.
Mt. Athabasca is on the Ice Field Park Way and one of the most popular peaks in the Canadian Rockies because of the easy access. This area gets its fair share of bad weather from the Colombia Ice Field. This peak has it all from moderate glacier routes, alpine ice headwalls, mixed limestone routes and good skiing.
