    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

      Vancouver Island Jan 17, 2017 at 5:17 AM

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

      glass bridge

      Canada Jan 20, 2017 at 7:20 AM

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

    • One week time in British Columbia. Suggestions ?

      Canada Dec 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      Hello,
      We are looking to spend one weeks time in British Columbia area, which is next week. Considering weather and roads, we believe Victoria, Tofino or may be Vancouver should be ok. We are coming from Portland.
      We are not into shopping, snow sports or food, but more keen to see natural sceneries. Though Tofino and Victoria have been discussed a lot on forums, I am not able to find, when question comes, what should see in Victoria in 3 days and what should I see in Tofino in 3 days.
      Can somebody help us with this ?
      Thanks

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

      Due to work schedules, we can only travel in June and current weather forecasts show rains and cloudy days on most of our travel days. My question is , does it usually rain all day or does it rain in small bouts and there is possibility of some sunshine to get the beautiful colours of the lakes? Thanks in advance for your replies

      I'm due to stay at the Chateau Lake Louise for 3 nights from Dec 27th-29th of this year.

      Out of interest - what are the prices at the restaurants/snack bars etc like? I don't have a clue what to expect & I'm trying to work out how much money I'm likely to need.

      Many thanks

      Lake Louise Ski School

      by Samscalling Online Now Mar 18, 2006 at 8:53 AM

      Hi there

      I was looking at the rates for the ski school, & it seems really reasonable:

      skilouise.com/lessons/adultP...

      Infact, it's cheaper for me to have a full days lesson ($79) than it would be to get a lift pass & hire the equiptment!

      I was just wondering whether anyone has done this programme & whether it was good?

    • Lake Louise Lift Ticket

      by fredd75temp Online Now Feb 2, 2004 at 12:33 PM

      Hello - I recently went to Lake Louise and it was incredible! I originally cashed in my airmiles for my lift ticket to save the60, but I forgot the pass at home and ended up spending the money anyway. Is there any place I can find people travelling to Lake Louise that I could sell my lift ticket to? Otherwise I'm stuck with this great lift ticket that I can't use, since I'm in Ontario. Thanks! fredd75temp@hotmail.com
