driving canada in winter - banff to prince rupert

Jump to last reply

Is this doable?
we have a week to do it in and then have to get back to vancouver to fly home

so far we are planning to fly into vancouver and then drive to banff and stay there for seven nights...OH will ski lake louise and ill potter doing non-skiing things

have booked the charlton cedar court down on banff ave and will continue to research activities

now...after the skiing part is over, we have another seven days and we were simply going to drive back to vancouver and do that part of the world
however OH is now thinking about driving from banff to prince rupert...he did it once in summer and it was beautiful country
im not so keen...not in winter but i can be talked into it


what are the conditions like? im aware of the snow falls and that roads can be closed
anything else?
should we just stick with the original plan and go back to vancouver?
any ideas/ routes would be greatly appreciated!
