Hi, we will be spending 2 weeks in Canada. Starting in Banff, then Jasper. Then onto Whistler-we would break this up into two days and probably overnight in Kamloops. I will be traveling with husband and two teenage boys. Just had a few quick questions:
1. I have read some posts that Whistler is anticlimatic after seeing the Rockies. Just wondering if it is worthwhile. I thought it would be fun to show the kids where the Olympics were held and heard the zipline was great at Whistler.
2. I was wondering what the roads were like from Jasper to Whistler in August. I know road conditions will probably be fine but was wondering if roads are very windy, hairpin turns, hard to drive, etc. Also would appreciate any route suggestions for driving from Jasper to Whistler.
3. Would like to stay near Village but not near rowdy, noisy part. Does anyone know if the Fairmont is quiet? I think it is right in Whistler village.
4. Finally, we will be going from Whistler to Vancover. Should we stop at Grouse Mountain and Capaliano bridge(probably spelled that wrong) on the way to Vancouver?
thanks again to everyone who posts on this site. I have gotten lots of useful information and greatly appreciate everyone's help!
