Snow Dome sits directly in front of the Columbia Icefield. Dome Glacier, which can be seen in full view from the Icefields Parkway, plunges down steeply from the Icefield. The Athabasca glacier sits to the left as you're looking at it from the Icefields Parkway. Snow Dome also happens to be the spot where rivers flowing down the mountain end up traveling to the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic Oceans.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
There are 4 trip reports for Snow Dome.
