Video Post: Wapta Falls in Winter—a Frozen Gem

I hiked to a 30-metre high waterfall in the middle of winter. What did it look like?

Wapta Falls is the gem of British Columbia’s Yoho National Park. And that’s saying a lot—Yoho is literally an aboriginal word for “awe,” and the park as a whole lives up to the moniker.

Nearby, Alberta’s Banff and Jasper national parks tend to hog the spotlight—especially since Yoho is unserviced in winter, meaning there’s barely anywhere to even park your car. But if you want majestic nature without the crowds, there are few better—and more accessible—places in the province.

Such this winter hike to Wapta Falls—an easy nine kilometres return, with an epic payoff where the Kicking Horse River tumbles into a 30-metre-high cascade of ice and water.
