OK - I have been researching the Banff overview, inside Banff, but I keep reading about the negative degrees. Please - I know this sounds stupid, but I am from the south, the mountains of NC and Ga. cannot compare to the Great Rockies- beauty and temp wise. So, I was wondering what suggestions and tips you all may have for keeping warm when we are out and about.
If there is a particular clothing brand, that is true to their claims, like North Face or Columbia ?? Also, all purpose hiking boots that keep your feet warm.
