    [other than go to the hot springs]

    I'll be staying there three days next week on a purely recreational trip. I understand that if you want to go to the bar, you go south to Invermere... other than that, I have no idea..

    Anyone been there? I'll be staying in a condo the female unit's family owns.

    We're driving from Calgary and will be driving through Banff National Park into Kootenay National Park, which Radium is outside of to the West. Any way to avoid the excessive park fees?

    I drove through, but didn't stop for anything. Nice looking place though.

    As for the park fees, when you hit the gate in Banff, tell them you're just driving through to Vancouver and not stopping in the National Park anywhere. If you're just driving through, there's no charge. Just remember if you do it this way though, and you stop somewhere within the park, they're able to ticket you. Never seen or heard of it happening, but they can...

    "The" female unit, or "a" female unit? :lol:

    I've never been to Radium, but i know there's a few good spots to eat out at, but i don't have the list our hotel used recommend.

    In regards to park passes and whatnot: Just stick to the far right lane that is used for people with park passes, they don't check to see if have one or not. If your driving though there should be no problem, but like dpwu32 said, you can be ticketed... I doubt you'll run into anything between the exit from radium to the park gates near Canmore. Even if you stop into banff it shouldn't be an issue, just park in one of the free lots and doubt anyone will be by to ticket there either.

    Are you kidding me? It's like $60 to enter Banff National Park. Why would I pay if I don't have to?

    Because I'm pretty sure the ticket you will receive will be astronomical in comparison.

    Suck it up. Its not like you're broke, buddy.

    From what I gathered while living there the ticket is the same price as admission, and the RCMP that are in the park never check. Or they never checked the public lot that was across from the hotel, lots of guests used to park there instead of paying for valet, even without park passes, and nothing ever amounted from it.
