I am planning to make a trip to Banff/Yoho and maybe even Jasper for a period of about 7 days or so (flexible). I would be driving from Seattle and would most probably be entering Canada through ID. I am going to be accompanied with a young 3 yr old and maybe my parents who are visiting us and are 60+. Hence, I'm not looking for a lot of strenous activity but mostly places with little to no hiking.
I definitely want to visit the following -
a) Lake Moraine
b) Emerald Lake
c) Lake Louise
d) Maybe Jasper
I have a few questions -
a) What are the places that I can see in Banff given my constraints?
b) I am not much of a snow-driver and dont really like that experience at all. Given that I would be the only designated driver in the group, would I be encountering any snow like conditions or extreme mountainous condition that I need to be vary off?
I would be doing driving for 10 straight days or so - coming from Seattle & then in the Rockies and then back to Seattle. Hence, I want to keep my driving to a reasonable extent and not drive in very strenous conditions too.
Thus, want to check if I would be encountering any of those conditions while in the Rockies.
Any help with the above questions would be much appreciated.
