    Accidental pictures

    Favorite thing: This photo was just lucky truthfully. Most of the time when I take a picture from a moving bus the photos end up being well, not that great usually. The light was magnificent and with the background of the mountains. Didn't even have to pay the driver extra to drive slower:)

    Weather in Banff

    by GentleSpirit Updated Apr 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Banff, because of its location, gets lots of snow in winter. Summer season is usually from May-September. Bear in mind though, the summer months have a relatively high average rainfall.

    I visited at the end of September. Fortunately, the weather was grand the whole time i was there. In September and October you will still find a relatively comfortable average temperature of 50-60 degrees F in daytime. Nights can be a bit chilly with snow in the mountains.

    Something that I loved seeing was the snow covering the mountains as you got up in the morning.

    Favorite thing: The Mountain Range in the refection of the the lake was one of my best shots and one of my best memories to take away from Banff area.

    Fondest memory: The mountain views all around the little town of Banff will stay in my memories forever. The Rundle, The Sundance Range and Sulpher Mountain.

    Favorite thing: Take a panoramic photo of these gorgeous mountain range & the amazing alpine trees! Pictured here are 2 most beautiful ladies who got lost in the mountains. Hehehe, just joking... that's me & my Canadian guide. But, she's beautiful, don't you think?

    Enjoy the snow

    by Sharrie Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Enjoy the snow... I know, I know, for most people in the Northern Hemisphere that's the understatement of the year. I've lived in Toronto for 3 full years & I understand your feeling. But, amazingly, I was able to appreciate the snow here. Guessed absence does makes the heart fonder!

    Overlooking Banff

    Favorite thing: Overlooking the entire place called Banff was this Lookout Point.

    The city spread out in front of us... it was very cold adn cloudy up here . be prepared with rain jackets. It starts drizzling/raining anytime without warning.

    Banff Springs Hotel

    Favorite thing: Banff and Jasper to me represent fun. I go fairly often, and no matter what the season or the reason, when I get there I end up thoroughly enjoying myself.

    I have gone to Banff more frequently in recent years than Jasper, and it has now overtaken that as my sanctuary of choice. =)

    Take a trip to the mountains....

    by Rice_Paper Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: Take a trip to the mountains. This is a picture I took on top of the Sulphur Mountain Gondolas (Banff). The cost to get up and down the mountain is a TAD pricey ($19/person). But what the heck!

    Favorite thing: Visit 'HOODO walk' and view the strange rock formations like ghosts of the past a way outside of Banff. Here you see the Banff Hotel in the distance.
