Imminent travel to Vancouver, Whistler and Calgary. Tips plz!

Hi guys!

I'm going to Canada by the end of the month and gonna spend like 5 days in Vancouver, 2-3 in Whistler and 6 days in Calgary. Any tips to make the most out of my trip? I'm going solo.

And specially regarding AB, do you guys think it would be worth it to take 2 days from Calgary to go to Banff/Lake Louise this time of the year?

Thank you!

Where are you coming from and what is your mode of transport?
Will you be skiing at Whistler?
There is bus service from Vancouver to Whistler. If you're coming through Seattle, use Amtrak train or Amtrak bus.

Hey Tom, thanks for replying.

I'm coming from Brazil by plane, direct to Canada.
Yes, I've already booked snowboarding lessons at Whistler

What else is there to do in Calgary unless you like museums, Tim Hortons Brier and drinking. In the middle of the month maybe a
Flames hockey game, a lacrosse game or even a Nickleback concert. Both Sunshine and Lake Louise are great ski spots to practice your new snowboarding skills.

Say hi to my brother Rob in the kitchen of The Round House at Whistler if your there during the week.
