Banff Jasper Icefields Parkway

Below is the elevation profile in reverse going from Jasper to Lake Louise, near Banff. However, Erik will be starting in Banff then riding to Lake Louise, then on the Icefields Parkway to Jasper, so his ride will include this profile done the opposite direction. There will be approximately 6500' of climbing over two major mountain passes.
