Shortest route from Vancouver-Canmore

I'm looking for the quicket way to get from Downtown Vancouver to Canmore. We only have one day to do this journey. We are use to making 9-10 hrs trips so are up for the task. We will be leaving, Monday, Sept 13. Is the traffic particularly bad during certain hours? TIA to anyone that can provide some insight.

Just use Google maps - directions.

Since you will be going against the rush any time is fine. Morning rush hour is usually 6-9. Hwy 1 then 5 then back to 1. Like Frommy said Google maps.

Be aware of the road construction on Hwy 1 from Vancouver for 37 km to Langley.

Take the Trans-Canada Highway! There isn't any other alternative route that is shorter.
