The Ghost River Wilderness is located just west of Calgary in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. Although this area receives little snow, the temperatures and limestone canyons are perfect for forming waterfall ice. Access to the Ghost is challenging, requiring a high clearance 4WD vehicle to negotiate the numerous river crossings.
