Sooo, going to Banff in Jan.. I'll probably do the free shuttle most days to make it easier and not have to walk long distances through parking lots in ski boots (my worst nightmare). However, getting to Banff from the Calgary airport is what I'm not sure of.. It will be one friend and myself on the trip, it looks like it would be about the same cost to get transportation from the airport as it would be to rent a car and add gas.
What I'm not sure about is the park entry prices.. Someone said something about free entry for 2017.. Is this correct? Is it also for non citizens?
What is the price normally?
Also, I've been reading about snow tires and that alot of rental agencies don't have a big supply of vehicles with them and the ones that do, charge alot more.
I'm kinda leaning toward renting a car also because I want to drive to Wetaskiwin to visit family. Are snow tires usually needed for a trip like this?
