We had to hike the last km to the top because of snow. So worth it! Even though it was sunny/cloudy the views were good but the Forrest was magical. Also enjoyed the viewpoints and a couple walks

We are going to start visiting National Parks from Mt Revelstoke NP (Meadows in the Sky Parkway). Is it possible to buy Discovery Pass (annual) at the enter of this parkway? Can I pay by credit card for it? Thanks.

I know they have staffed booths both at Meadows in the Sky and at the Cedar Boardwalk Trail at Mt. Revelstoke. Should be possible to pick it up (as per Joan's post). If you are coming from Vancouver, you could also stop in at Fort Langley National Historic site on your way out of town and get it there.

Part 6 – Jasper to Nakusp DAY 9: Yet another glorious sunny day. Today we start our drive to Vancouver. Our plan is to reach Nakusp for an overnight. We left Jasper at about 7:30am and drove back down the Icefields Parkway (IP) to the TCH, turning west towards Revelstoke. One never gets tired of driving along the IP, as each time it looks a little different, depending on the weather and the angle of the sun. It is always recommended to backtrack on the IP for this reason – especially if...More
