We are planning a trip next March with our kids, 10 and 12. We'll be starting out in Edmonton around 3/12, and I was hoping we could then:
drive to Jasper (stay one night), see Icefields
drive to Lake Louise (stay 2-3 nights, ski)
drive to Banff (1-2 nights, sightsee)
drive to Calgary and fly home
Is this reasonable in midMarch? I've read posts about the Icefields Parkway potentially closing, and I know weather is always unpredictable, but was wondering how often that happens in midMarch. We're from Boston, so snow doesn't bother us, though obviously we don't want to end up in a snowdrift. Other options would be skipping Jasper and the Icefields, which seems like a real pity, and just going straight to the Banff/LL area.
Any tips much appreciated!
