If you have any specific questions, I will be glad to try to answer them.
In this area, there is always the possibility of snow but it is more likely that you won't encounter snow in Banff at the end of Sept. Expect mild days and cool evenings - a jacket should meet your needs.What week of September were you there and what was the weather like? We are going Sept. 26, 2009 and I'm worried that there will be snow.
Banff is a year round resort with spring and fall being the shoulder seasons. The only businesses that will be closed will be the current round of business failures and of course the ski resorts will have yet to open.I hope the weather is decent to get around. Were businesses open as I think that could be another issue that late in the year.
Lake Louise is apx. 30-45 minutes along the Trans Canada from Banff and is at the southern point of the Icefields Pkwy. The drive between Lake Louise & Jasper can take just over 2 hours to well over a day if you really want to explore the great scenery.Is Lake Louise in the Icefield area you are talking about and you are recommending that you stay one night closer to that area? How long does it take to drive there from the resort?
