Suggestions for Spring Break around Banff

by Brad F » Wed Mar 03, 2010 4:03 am

I'm heading out to Banff for Spring break (March 27 to April 3) to go snowboarding. Now I know there's plenty of ice climbing around, but the people I'm travelling with have never ice climbed so unfortunately we won't be ice climbing. With that in mind, I would like to get in a bit of climbing, hiking, or scrambling of some sort, but I'm unsure what the area is like this time of year for these types of activities.

Does anyone have any good suggestions on where to go or what to climb?

Thanks in advance.

Yoho is a spectacular - quite impressive. I'd go back there in a heartbeat. We went up to the Abbot Hut (It was in August, tho'. Not sure about the winter conditions, etc...). I'm jealous. Enjoy.
