Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Columbia Icefield whisks viewers away on an educational journey through present-day ice fields, revealing the exact conditions of the historic Ice Age. From the Icefield Snocoaches, the program travels a landscape packed with frozen history, flying past Alberta's tallest peak, Mount Columbia, and peering inside deadly, deep crevasses. The camera scans the world's largest non-polar ice fields, following explorers on foot and in helicopter. A professional team of climbers crawls into 100,000-year-old ice formations, showing viewers precisely what the world looked like during the ancient Ice Age.
