The snow capped peaks of Cascade Mountain reach a height of 2,998 meters looking down upon glaciers, miles of alpine meadows and lakes. Many visitors to Banff National Park will spend their vacation mountain climbing to the peaks of Cascade Mountain where the scenery is unbelievable.
Banff is one of the four National Parks, the other three being Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho, which surround and protect a majority of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
