Waterton Lakes Webcams
Webcams in Waterton Lakes National Park are limited. For many years a webcam was mounted on the roof of the Waterton Lakes Lodge, facing south across the town to Upper Waterton Lake, but it was out of service throughout 2017.
In adjacent Glacier National Park, the U.S. National Park Service has webcams scattered throughout the park.
The closest of these to Waterton Lakes is at Goat Haunt at southern end of Upper Waterton Lake. This webcam faces northward, giving a good view up the lake toward Waterton townsite. This webcam only operates between June and early October, as it runs on power generated by a small hydro station that is shut down over winter. NOTE: This webcam was struck by lightning in August, 2016, and is scheduled to be replaced in 2018.
The Many Glacier webcam at Swiftcurrent Lake is another good option within Glacier National Park as the weather pattern here is very similar to nearby Waterton Lakes National Park.
Castle Mountain Ski Resort is also outside the national park, but weather conditions are usually similar.
Wind is an important factor in Waterton weather patterns. The best way to get accurate wind speed information is the local forecast issued by the Government of Canada, which includes Waterton wind speeds
