planning a trip late April into the first week of May for next year and I know options can be pretty limited going north towards the icefield/Jasper but what about Kananaskis this time of year? We are interested in getting out and exploring anywhere we can in the area, by car or short-medium length hikes (4 hours or so max) and we will not be feeling as if we need to cram everything in as the plan for now is to visit again later in early to mid Sept for the different options for another week or so. We are not downhill skiers, but we are also interested in seeing all options and are sort of putting everything on the table at this time to consider options, so maybe a day rental on the easy runs somewhere are still in the cards.
I am reading Moon's travel book for Canadian Rockies- but most information is for July-early Sept from what I am gathering so far.
Our home base for the April trip is east of Canmore at the Gate Mountain Resort in Dead Man Flats. Sept is TBD
thanks in advance for your input!
