Most scenic route from Seattle to Banff?

I have 3 days to make the drive (do I need that much?) and want to see the best of what I can see. Our preferences are rustic over cities, unless it is a quant little town. Any MUST SEES along the way? Any crazy passes to avoid?

I am attaching the route I was planning for, but it is open to being changed.

Your route is fine, you will go up through the Okanagan Valley. Lots of wine tasting opportunities there. World famous for the wine.
But if you aren't into wine, why not stay on highway #3 to Castlegar form Osoyoos? Then head up to Revelstoke on #6 and #23. It's a free ferry crossing at Galena Bay, and there are some nice provincial parks along the way.
Just a thought for you.
Happy Glamping.

Take WA 20 across the N. Cascade pass to Republic and then N. to Danville/Grand Forks.

Winthrop, Omak, Okanogan, and Repuplic are all neat little towns. As are many more on your route.

3 Days may not be enough!

Top up fuel before entering Canada.

Thank you gentlemen. I've been looking over your proposed changes. We wouldn't particularly appreciate the wine country experience. The ferry experience sounds neat.

I'll post again after I've done some digging around. Wish we could afford more than 3 days for the area, but we are limited by reservations at Lake Louise
