We are driving to BC on highway 84 or 15. Which mountain pass is the best one to use in mid April ?
Thanks.

Glenn--

I forgot you are based in BC. In July I plan on taking BC-5 from Abbotsford to Jasper NP. Since I've never been up there I wanted to make sure that the route will be OK for my 40' rig. I have 10 days reserved at Jasper and another 2 weeks in Banff.

That shouldn't be a problem. Highway 5 is a freeway to Kamloops and after that is a good 2 lane highway to Jasper (except for a couple of short sections in the Barrier/Little Fort area). After that the Icefields highway has a few curves, but it is one spectacular drive towards Banff.
