Tip : If you will be driving down the Icefields Parkway (Hwy #93) to Lake Louise, ensure that you have enough gasoline for the three-hour drive before you leave Jasper.  The only gas station on the Icefields Parkway is an expensive one at Saskatchewan Crossing, about two hours south of Jasper.  Restaurants on the Icefields Parkway are few and far between.  The choice of food at Saskatchewan Crossing and at the Columbia Icefields is underwhelming.  You might consider buying a take-away lunch in the town of Jasper before setting out on the Icefields Parkway.

In winter the situation on the Icefields Parkway requires even more careful planning.  From the middle of October through the middle of April, there are no restaurants, gasoline stations or flush toilets along the Icefields Parkway.  According to the Parks Canada Road Reports website, "winter highway maintenance occurs during daytime hours only" and the road is not patrolled by highway crews after 4:30 p.m. If you choose to drive the Icefields Parkway in winter, the winter emergency survival kit that you should have obtained even before you reached Jasper takes on added importance.  Be aware that cell phones do not work along much of the Icefields Parkway, and be conscious of how few hours of daylight there are in winter.
