This area provides one of the most beautiful mountain experiences in the world. Highly recommended.
Also mornings will often dawn cloudless and then local clouds get created from the snow on the mountains in June, so get out early. By September, the local cloud effect is over so the days are nice.

We had a bit of a snow storm hiking north of Banff the first week of August.

Also, best to go there before later June when the summer crowds arrive but how early in the spring are the parks walkable?

Maybe early spring there's still snow in the hiking paths?
The photo was late Sept and was the first of the season. Crowds then were definitely off peak.

I have to admit that I love the prototypical shot of mountains reflecting off a pristine lake. I find them so cool.

We live 70 minutes from Banff.

We have seen it snow in every month here in Alberta. In fact, there were some snow flurries yesterday in the area. Yesterday it was only 8. Two days ago it was 26. This morning it was 1. There is a saying in Alberta. If you don't like the weather wait an hour.


Forgot to add...that is C not F.

If you are heading out for the day, make sure to have lots of layers. Maybe not a parka but a wool sweater and a ski shell with hood. And gloves.
