I'm flying to Calgary in late November and then either taking a bus or driving to Banff(most likely taking a bus because I'm not experienced with winter driving at all). I'll be there for about five days.
Is there usually enough snow for skiing by this time? And are there any other activites like dog sledding available in the area?
Also, I imagine the northern lights are hit and miss so far south but are there any areas that are best for catching a glimpse of them?
