Come here in midsummer, trance time is reversed, half-sleeved shorts wearing for a few days, you suddenly need down cotton clothes to wrap up. The scenery here can be seen from a distance, but you should ride on an ice sheet car to experience the excitement of climbing, slowly descending and ice sports. This huge object carrying you on a journey is one of the most classic experiences of all scenic spots. The reason why the original car returns and you stay for no more than 15 minutes is to protect the ice sheet and worry about the rising temperature. It is self-conscious. I missed my car and spent nearly an hour on the ice sheet. It was clear afterwards that this meant protecting the natural environment. I felt a little ashamed of BC Province.
The conditions for climbing the Colombian ice sheet are very harsh, with a few indicators that do not meet, and teams already at the door will be banned. Because the appointments are full all day, so when it's your turn, you can only refund your ticket and leave. Our luck was very good. Because of the heavy snow in the morning, all the teams could not go up. The snow stopped at noon. Haha! From the base to the ice sheet, different means of transportation need to be changed to adapt to different terrain. The big wheeled snowmobile that I finally got on could hardly be better! Older people don't need to walk a few steps during the whole journey. It's so exciting that they can experience the ice and snow crystallization for millions of years.
The Colombian ice sheet is the largest ice sheet in the world outside the Arctic Circle. Because the ice layer of glacier is very dense, the sunlight can not refract, it will present crystal clear blue light, which is very magnificent under the clear sky. Snow melting flows to the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and Arctic Sea respectively. It is a natural treasure formed after four ice ages. Glacier is a snowway sliding from the bottom of the ice sheet to the slope due to gravity. It carries heavy materials such as ice, snow, rocks and so on, so the velocity of flow is very slow. The seven-kilometer Athabasca Glacier moves only about seven meters a year, so it may take hundreds or even thousands of years for snow and ice to flow from the ice sheet to the bottom of the glacier. I took the specially designed Iceberg Explorer all-terrain tour bus and stepped on the 6 km-long Athabasca Glacier to see Fangze.
From Lake Louise to the north along Icefield Avenue, across Lake Bow, the next attraction is exciting --- Ice Expedition, Glacier Adventure: First there is a ferry to take visitors to the foot of the Icefield, and then six large-wheeled snow trucks to take visitors to the 300-metre-deep ice sheet. When the snow truck drives on the ice sheet, it can see the junction of the bare land and the ice sheet in summer, melting snow water and blue ice. Walk on the glacier to experience the magic of nature and enjoy the special taste of glacial water for thousands of years.

Remember to take a five-star red flag and take pictures on the ice and snow before you leave. Otherwise, you can only take pictures with the Canadian flag.
Columbia Ice Field, a must-see attraction in Canada. It's not usually cold. I have to wear very thick clothes. I wear sweaters, down vest and down clothes. I'm still frozen into a dog and my cell phone is frozen off. The ice was slippery, and the wolf's claw outdoor shoes didn't prevent me from slipping. The bicycle is also a view of the ice sheet, and all kinds of steep slopes are out of the question. It's too big to take good pictures. I'm a little sorry.
Famous Columbia Icefield and Atalabasca Glacier. Standing on the white glacier with blue light, touching the ancient ice and snow crystals, you can feel its constant temperature since the Ice Age. Fortunately, the clothes are ready to be put in place, without feeling the freezing temperature of minus ten degrees. It is said that in winter, the body temperature here will reach minus sixty degrees.
Banff National Park is surrounded by three national parks. Take the Icefield Avenue to Jasper National Park, where the Colombian Ice Field is located. First, take a ferry to the designated place and change to a special ice snow car to reach the ice sheet. You can only move in the designated area, and you can also taste the melting water of the glacier.
Colombia Icefield World's remaining glacier heritage, glamorous eyes, tremendous shock on the glacier car is also super handsome... Suggest that you go to the book which time period must be ahead of time, so that you can take the front row of the car, you can see the car down to the glacier slope is very large, very exciting!!
In the heart of Banff Park, the Colombian ice sheet has to change large sledges in the passenger center to go up the hill. Staying on the ice sheet for a short time, we have to leave before we can play enough. If you have time, don't choose to ride on the ice sheet, but choose to go hiking, the kind with guides.
Feel the wonder of nature one day when the Colombian ice sheet merges into the Three Ocean Boundary (Pacific Arctic Atlantic Ocean) to watch the glacier sky trail stimulated by the Athabasca Glacier (Fig. 1). Fig. 3 is the ice cave in the ice sheet and the bow lake in the slight snow haze (Fig. 7).
