    I vote for Winter as it is my favorite time in Banff National Park.  Not too sure if you know this or not but it is the off season November to March so the prices for hotels are cheaper.  January to March is nicer than the early winter (Oct-Dec) as you usually see snow with more picturesque winter days.  Good luck deciding as it will be hard.  I am biased as we had a winter wedding in the mountains.  :). You really can’t go wrong as it truly is a wonderful place to visit.

    @nzbride3:  We honeymooned in the Canadian Rockies!  Atally we got married while on the honeymoon up there.

    We went in Aug/Sept.  There is SOOOOOO much to see and do – in any season.  I think you can do more in the summer becuase there are longer day light hours and more activities in no snow.  In fact we are going back in 201 for our 2 anniversary to hit many the things we missed. 

    While we are avid backcountry skiiers (build igloos, winter camp, yurts all that), we really wanted to go when the weather was nice for camping and hiking as we wanted to get married in nice weather and we wanted to be able to camp to off set the cost of the trip.  I can share my weddingmoon blog with you, if you PM me your email address.  I don’t want to post it on here since it’ll be permant.

    That Skoki Lodge looks fun for a winter trip.
