It is an unbelievable scenic, and less traveled route and this highway is only open a few months of the year due to extreme snow. It is also the highest road in Canada through Highwood Pass

between Longview and Canmore. Head north into Banff and then up the Icefields Parkway to Jasper

On your way south, stay at Fairmont Hot Springs and soak in the outdoor hot springs

Are you talking hwy 40 South of Banff, or North headed to Hinton/Jasper? I am looking at that as a possible route to Jasper, then ride the Icefields Parkway south from Jasper to Banff, leaving tomorrow.
Thanks
