Tips For Staying Near Glacier National Park

Location
One of seven National Parks in British Columbia, Glacier National Park sits between Banff and Kamloops in the Columbia Mountains, with the Trans-Canada Highway running through it. The park contains active glaciers as well as one of Canada's largest cave systems.

The park is open 365 days a year and the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre is also open throughout the year. Many trails and visitors' areas are closed throughout the winter months due to the large amount of snowfall the area receives. For more detailed information on what's open when, check out their website. Trail conditions and safety reports are also available for more detailed information on visitor safety. 

National Park Pass is required for everyone wishing to visit the park and winter permits must be purchased, upon passing a winter safety test, for people expecting to go into unrestricted areas throughout the winter months. Winter permits are in effect in order to ensure that winter campers and activity seekers are properly able to self-rescue and acknowledge potential avalanches in the case of emergencies.
