Canadian Rockies: when to go, where to base?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to the Canadian Rockies this spring/early fall (trying to avoid the crush of July/August) and was wondering if someone could help me decide if late June or September is a better time to visit Banff and Jasper. I've already consulted climate charts and it seems the weather is about the same, maybe slightly wetter in June? I'd prefer to go in June (since it's sooner!) but can wait till September if it really makes a big difference weather-wise and crowd-wise. We're planning on hiking (day-hikes, no camping) and just general sightseeing.

Also -- if anyone can help me figure out what would be the best base(s), that would be great too. We have about 9 or 10 days in the area and would like to see at least a bit of Banff, Lake Louise, Icefields, Jasper and Yoho.

Thanks in advance for your help!
