Since you're coming from California, do you get to drive much in the rain? If not, it might be helpful to know that worn, dirty road markers and a lack of reflectors on many BC roads can make it very hard to see your lane on rainy nights here. Something to consider when scheduling your departure/arrival times.
Ive been in CA for 2 years but originally from New Zealand. Which rains a lot and has really narrow windy roads though hardly any snow driving. I am going to try and stick to the 'only drive during the day' rule because I want to see things.
Thanks for the info and route suggestions. Whats hwy5 like? Current plan would be hwy7, hwy5 to Jasper then take 93 down.
Like you mention, Hwy99 to Whistler looks good. Then get back on hwy5 to Jasper. Would you pick this over hwy7,5?
