If you have ever been to the Athabasca Glacier you would have had the thrilling opportunity to ride in a Snow Coach.
A snow coach is a specialized passenger transport vehicle, specifically designed to be able to operate on ice or snow. They are much like a huge, multi-passenger transit bus that is equipped with bus styled seating and extended full height windows to maximize scenic views. With their multiple sets of large low pressure tires they can travel across the vast snow or ice covered glaciers of the Rocky Mountains and deliver passengers to areas that they could not reach on foot.
Snowcoaches are a common sight for tourists on the Athabasca Glacier, just north of Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park, Canada.
This Snow Coach is getting a little TLC at Big Rig Towing where they are giving it an over haul and making it ready for another trip up the glaciers of Canada’s National Parks
