I am looking for advice on travelling in December. I am flying into Calgary the 16th December and our destination is Saskatoon on 23rd December (to stay with family for Christmas) via the places mentioned in the subject. I know around that time it is going to be snowy and the ice freeway is likely to be shut at short notice but what is the general advice on getting up to Jasper as that may determine our route/plan for the week?
I think I have picked the hotels I fancy on the selected dates but this is also determined by what places/activities are likely to be open, to determine where we stay for shorter/longer periods?
We have an SUV booked to hire so we can get (I hope, snow dependant) to see things.
Last thing, can you do day ski/snowboard hire in Banff?
All help will be greatly appreciated as you can only ask Google so much!
