What are some of the best websites for mountain weather forecasts in the Canadian Rockies? Thanks.

Bring a compass. It's awkward when you have to eat your friends

Also useful for near realtime info, Check out Alberta Environment's network of weather stations.

http://www.environment.alberta.ca/apps/basins/default.aspx

Navigate by river basin and click on the station nearest to the area in question.

The mountain weather stations provide near real time data on snowpack over the winter. I am not sure if the mountain stations are maintained during the summer, as I have never checked them during the summer.
