Tetons from the West

Looking at a big Western swing next summer. Two potential issues are from Seattle to Vancouver and up to the Canadian Rockies, Jasper, Lake Louise and Banff. From there we will come down I-15 to come into the Tetons. Any suggestions?

I recently drove the Seattle to Vancouver leg. No problems there except for the very long time at the Blaine border crossing. Highway is all interstate type road and follows the flat coastal plain. Vancouver, of course, has all the traffic of a big city. Unless you really want to visit Vancouver, you might consider going east of the city and crossing the border at the less busy Hwy 539, Guide Meridian Road. You do encounter a few hills south of Bellingham where the Cascade Mountains reach the coast but they are nothing worrisome.

We live in Jackson Wyoming so I’ve driven I-15 quite a bit. It’s definitely the most efficient way to get from western Montana to the Tetons. Almost endless camping opportunities along the way. What time of year do you anticipate getting here? Are you needing campgrounds or boondocking?

Were looking at mid-July and definitely campgrounds. Were in a 45 foot coach pulling a toad so my choices of routes may be somewhat limited.

I-15 to Idaho Falls then Hwy 26 to Alpine, WY and north on 26/89 to Jackson and Grand Teton Nat'l Park. Easy drive.

Don't be tempted to pick up 31 off 26 into Victor, ID then 22 into Jackson... steep ... you probably won't like it.

The road from swan valley to Victor, over Teton Pass to Jackson, WY is 10% grade both sides for about 5 miles with a couple of 25- 30 MPH curves thrown in just to increase the Pucker Factor. Xlent drive solo!
