In the summer, the weather is warm but the weather can change quickly. Dress in layers so you can adapt throughout the day, especially in the Canadian Rockies. Bring clothing for warm weather, such as T-shirts and shorts, but you’ll also want long pants, sweaters and jackets. Don’t forget sunblock, a hat, sunglasses and appropriate footwear, such as sturdy sandals and trail runners or hiking boots if you’re planning to hike.
In the winter, layering is key to enjoy this chilly season. You'll want a warm base layer that fits close to your body (merino wool is a good option), a mid-layer (usually a fleece jacket or puffer coat) and a windproof shell or parka to top it all off if you plan to get outdoors. Waterproof and windproof pants are a must for skiing or snowboarding, and you'll also want accessories like mittens, a toque (hat) and a neck warmer. Don't forget cozy winter boots with good grip.
Spring and fall weather can be unpredictable, so pack light layers and a mix of what you’d bring in the summer and winter.
