Located 30 km (19 miles) South of Jasper, this 46m (151 foot) wide waterfall drops 24 m (79 feet). Flow is greatly reduced in the winter.
A beautiful sight in spring, summer and fall, but really magnificent in winter, when it is often covered in ice and snow.
In 2005, skiing was off the table due to my son recuperating from knee surgery. However, we did take out lives in our own hands trying to walk on the icy walkways at Athabasca Falls.
We popped back in here on Christmas Day, 2009 with K and again enjoyed the wintery views.
In April 2019, we showed the falls to our friends H & L from Winnipeg. The snow was mostly gone, but the falls were still plenty frosty.
