Filming information

When is the best time to film?

We have had good success with film crews at all times of the year. However, the best time of day to film, either with still or video cameras varies with the season. Please keep the following in mind:


The glacier is oriented from NE to SW, with the Columbia Icefield stretching above to the SW.

On both sides of the glacier are a number of high peaks that cast long shadows across the ice early and late in the day, particularly in late August and September.  

It can take up to an hour and a half to reach a specific part of the glacier.

Before early July many of the glacier's surface features, such as crevasses and millwells, are still covered by winter snow.

The latter half of September sometimes sees early snowstorms sweep across the area, making travel more difficult and dangerous.

Is a permit needed?

Commercial film crews require a permit from Jasper National Park. Please contact them directly.
