Don't be surprised to see an Elk or two, or even a whole herd, if you drive the Bow Valley Parkway or the Lake Minnewanka Scenic Drive. It’s always a memorable experience to catch sight of these majestic animals in the wild. #wildlifewednesday 📷 @imagesbychristopher 📍 #mybanff . . . . . #banff#banffnationalpark#explorebanff#explorealberta#explorecanada#wildlife#canadianwildlife#banffwildlife#elk#bullelk

That feeling of freedom! Who can't stop thinking about the weekend? Located along the Icefields Parkway, Bow Lake is just one of dozens of scenic stops. Winter conditions occur on this highway from October through late April. If you (and your car) are prepared for the drive, you'll be treated to magical frozen landscapes with only a fraction of the traffic compared to summer months. Who's up for the adventure? #MyBanff 📷 @aman.shai.xox 📍 #bowlake Please note: Always check warnings and ice thickness before walking out on frozen lakes. . . . #banff#lakelouise#banffnationalpark#explorealberta#explorecanada#icefieldsparkway
The Lake Louise sky was on fire this morning! @skibig3 ambassadors, @wjlphoto and @dannothomson finding fresh tracks along Pipestone Ridge in the sidecountry of @skilouise.#mybanff 📷: @wjlphoto ⛷️:@dannothomson . Safety tip: Accessing backcountry areas means severe weather and avalanches are real hazards. You and everyone in your group must be self-sufficient—carrying all the proper gear (transceiver, shovel, and probe), and have avalanche training.
