I don't envey your trip no matter wich way you go!
We usually go through Edson, Hinton, Jasper, Valemount, Clearwater, Kamloops, Merrit, Vancouver. Apparently they are predicting a lot of snow in the mountains this year. It's the most direct way for us.
Not looking forward to the Coquithalla (is that how they spell it?)
We want to make it Valemount on day 1 (hopefully nights won't be too cold since the animals will all be in a stock trailer).
Day 2: Vancouver or Nanaimo depending on where we can find a parking spot with a trailer full of noisy animals
Day 3 (March 1st) Gabriola Island so just a 20 minute ferry ride from Nanaimo.
