Crowfoot Pass Waputik Range
- CanadaBanff National Park
Crowfoot Pass' main attraction is the Crowfoot Glades area found looker's left of the Crowfoot Glacier tongue but there are several other options worth checking out. The moraines looker's right are often under utilized and the couloir features over Bow Lake offer some steeper skiing. Above Crowfoot Glades there are several fans below the large cliffs and a tour out to the pass and back makes for a great day out with excellent views.Ski Zone Access Info: [?]

Drive up the Icefield Parkway to the Crowfoot Glacier viewpoint and park. Ski down from the viewpoint and onto the south east end of Bow Lake. All routes start from this location.
Many parties looking to ski at Crowfoot Glades or Pass will park roughly 1km south of the Crowfoot Glacier lookout, saving roughly 800m each way for access to those areas. Although this is common practice, it is not techincally premitted and you do so at your own risk. From the car head down from the highway and into an open flat area before linking up with the lake below Crowfoot Glades.
