We are skiing at Kimberley but as conditions are a bit poor we've decided to spend a few days on a road trip to Lake Louise, etc. Leaving tomorrow! Got a truck with snow tires so that's covered. Plus our warm ski clothes/boots. We've booked tomorrow (wednesday) night at Lake Louise and can stay an extra night there or elsewhere if we want to. So we thought we might drive to Lake Louise via the Kootenay National Park. There are a few hikes at Lake Louise that I thought looked good (suitable in this weather/ not too icy?) to Fairview lookout and Bow Glacier Falls and I thought we would either do the snowshoe tour or just catch the gondola up and look around ourselves (comment on both options welcome). Then other things we have been recommended in the area are Lake Golden and a look around Field. On the way home we will stop at Fairmont hot springs.
So you can see the types of things we like, is there anything else in the area I've missed? We might spend the second night in Banff as we've been told to get ribs at Tony Roma's for dinner. Are there any good lookout points or other places we should stop along the way? Thanks in advance for all help!
