Banff/Jasper - best time to go?

Jump to last reply

I would like to take my husband to Banff/Jasper this summer for his 50th birthday. We are from MN and would fly into Calgary and rent a car. We would like to stay at a vacation rental and not opposed to moving around. We would be able to spend 4-5 days there. One of the posts I read said July is the end of tourist season and you might see snow.
When is the best weather in that area?
When is the best 'slow' time with good weather to avoid the main touristy season?
We love to hike and would do that most of the time. Where is the best place to stay to do that but still have access to a variety of scenery (Jasper, Icefields Parkway, Banff, Lake Louise and all the other beautiful lakes) and still have access to some local good food and drink?
Suggestions for food and drink that are NOT chains and where the locals go are welcomed too.
Thank you for your help!
