Thanks! We had originally planned a day or two at Waterton NP but decided instead to travel on up to Jasper to take a train ride & also a tour of Maligne Valley. Didn't see how we had time for both Waterton & Jasper on this trip so had to choose one. My Dad (who is traveling with us) really wanted to take the train ride from Jasper over to Dunster, British Columbia so that won out. We have about 6 days to sightsee around Banff before spending a couple of days down in Calgary sightseeing there.

Thanks again for the travel tip!

Just take 93/95 north from Kalispell all the way to the TransCanada (#1) then a short drive east into Banff. There's no need to go all the way east to highway 22 or highway 2. My wife and I live in Calgary and we pull our trailer down to Flathead Lake twice a year and since we live in the south end of the city we use either 22 or 2. We have never had problems with wind but as other posters have stated there's also other drivers to contend with. I'll be perfectly blunt, Alberta drivers are idiots. And as a side note, don't bother going to Calgary for a couple of days, there is nothing special to see or do here. You will be much happier sticking around Banff and Jasper.
