We have never been to Canada or US but we hare headed there in December this year. We are booked into Banff for 1 week over Christmas. Can Banff. anyone give me some ideas about getting from Seattle. There are 6 of us (husband , self and 4 teenage chidlren) and flying to Calgary is very expensive. I am getting conflicting information about the drive from Seattle to Banff in the snow. Can anyone give me some idea of wheter this is doable or should we look at alternative transport. What other ways are there to travel across this terrain?
