Later this summer we plan to travel from here in Wisconsin to the Pacific Northwest. From Glacier Park in Montana the plan is to go North to the Banf area, possibly as far as Jasper. What is the easiest route from there over the Divide and on towards Vancouver. I have a 35 ft gasser and pull a Honda Fit. Thanks for any help.

There are lots of choices, from Banff the #1 wil go straight to Vancouver and is the main route. From Jasper take 16 west to #5 and then south to Kamploops and back on to the the #1. After you climb up through Kamploops you can take the Coquihalla which is 4 lane divided or continue on the #1, they merge back together in Hope. They are all good paved roads but the Coquihalla will have steeper climbs then staying on the #1 which is longer.

The easiest route is #16 from Jasper to Kamloops. The Coquihalla is steep, and I believe that #1 would be easier. You will also find the Coquihalla quite windy.

It's a very EASY Drive from Jasper to Vancouver. We live here in the LOWER MAINLAND and have driven # 1 (2 Lane Highway = very kurvy) and # 5 (Coqu 4 Lane Highway = easy driving).
The more scenic Highway is the # 1 Highway. The faster and shorter is the #5 (Coqu.)
