- Crowfoot Glacier
Crowfoot Glacier is located in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Lake Louise, and can be viewed from the Icefields Parkway. The glacier is situated on the northeastern flank of Crowfoot Mountain.
Crowfoot Glacier is east of the Continental divide, and runoff from the glacier supplies water to the Bow River. The glacier has retreated since the end of the Little ice age and now has lost one entire lobe; it therefore no longer resembles the glacier which early explorers named. The glacier was measured to be 1.5 km² (0.58 miles²). The Crowfoot glacier was once connected to the Wapta Icefield, and in the 1980s and was considered to be part of a smaller icefield of 5 km² (1.9 mi²).
