By driving into Rogers Pass, you've entered Canada's second oldest national park, Glacier National Park. Don't mix up with Glacier National Park in the USA!
Nestled in the Columbia Mountain Range 50% is above the treeline and 12% of the park is covered with ice. More than 140 glaciers stretches over the mountaintops and makes the park a true 'glacier paradise'. This was the place where the first trans-continental railway and highway through the Selkirk Mountains became a fact. Today 5 tunnels, snow sheds and earth dams give you a save passage through one of the most active avalanche areas in the world.
Ski touring is one of the many activities the park has to offer, but only skiers with knowledge of travel in avalanche terrain are welcome.
Glacier National Park provides just a few easy hikes and a good number of difficult ones. A special hike leads into the Nakimu Caves , but you need a Parks permission to enter the Caves.
Once Glacier House was the perfect base for exploring the backcountry, but even today mountaineering is a major park attraction.
For a full description of all the hikes, numbered below as a Reference point, see the Hiking in Glacier NP Map and Brochure or the Hiking section of the Parks website.
Start your visit at the Parks Visitor Information Centre Rogers Pass Discovery Centre.
To learn more about specific activities, check the Parks Canada website.
While traveling through Rogers Pass, please do not forget to adjust your watch one hour backwards or vice versa. The Time zone is changing from Mountain Time Zone into Pacific Time Zone or vice versa.
