Banff National Park, the Town of Banff and Lake Louise were not directly impacted by the recent storm that triggered flooding in many communities across southern Alberta, cutting off key transportation routes, disrupting power and water supplies, and interrupting communication channels.
The Town of Banff, Parks Canada, and the RCMP worked together to ensure public safety. The majority of the national park's highways have also been cleared for travel. Park information centers, lodging, restaurants, retail businesses and attractions are ready to welcome guests.
