Flooding in Banff and Kananaskis: Where to find up-to-date information on road and trail conditions

The floods that hit Canmore, Banff, Kananaskis, Waterton and other areas of the Canadian Rockies will be felt by the outdoor community for the rest of the summer, and probably well beyond. With all the misinformation flying around the Internet--and credible up-to-date information often difficult to find--I thought I'd put together a list of links where you can find the trail and road condition information you need to make decisions about getting out to the mountains.

General Mountain Conditions

Banff National Park

The Banff townsite is open. Check the links below for the latest information on how to get there and what you can do once you're there.


If there's a central page for flood related information, I couldn't find it on the Town of Canmore website. You'll have to click around to find specific information, but it's there:

Jasper National Park

Kananaskis Road and Trail Conditions

Kootenay National Park

Kootenay isn't reporting any damage or closures from the flooding.

Waterton Lakes National Park

Waterton had some flooding damage and road closures, but remained open and accessible.

Yoho National Park

Yoho wasn't affected by the flooding.
