Hey there peps... need a wee bit a help and a wee bit of advice.
I'm travelling on my own this Friday to Toronto. my time constraints are just 3 weeks and albeit i'd love to do longer, i simply cannot....
my plan is as follows:
I'm arriving Friday into toronto and staying there for 3 days (to include 1 day trip to Niagra Falls)
Then taking the train to Montreal & Quebec for 3 days total before heading back to Toronto to get a flight to Calgary.
After a day in Calgary was going to head to Banff for 1 nite and onto Jasper (hitting Lake Louise on the way) for 2 days.....was going to wait til i got to Jasper to do white water rafting, horse riding, bike tour, a wee hike and maybe a grizzley bear tour......
from Jasper to Vancouver by train (VIA unfortunately!) and then over to the family on vancouver island. and all the whale watching one can possibly take in!!!
my question is this..... if Lake Louise is frozen still (as i saw on another feed), are there winter sports possiblities....(i dont want to lug my snowboard around with me, nor my heavy boots) and i simply wont have time to go to Whistler (leave that for next time!) BUT will i be able to say that i went skating across lake louise???? are there any runs for skiing/snowboarding and can you hire equipment there?
any info, help or advice will be more than welcome and the nearer i get to departure, the more anxious i'm getting, ergo, the more i need ur help so i can prepare for what's ahead of me.
i looked-up approx temperatures and it said between 9 and 14 celcius - is that true?
Seriously, any help appreciated :-)
