One of the best points for viewing this outstanding mountain is from the Icefields Parkway, a few kilometres north of Ranger Creek. This is the point at which the highway is closest to the mountain. Its massive upper section stands symmetrically on a broad base of horizontal strata. Wide bands of snow linger below the upper cliffs throughout the summer.
