Traveling to Banff in Feb?

I've always wanted to go to Banff! But, I was thinking about a summer trip.

Instead, I have a group of friends going Feb 2014. So, this is a great opportunity for a photo trip!

In terms of photography, is this a good time to go? I'd be driving, so I have good access to get around. But, I didn't know if this would be all snow covered or what the opportunities would be like - lakes and mountains or just snow and snow covered trees!

I'd appreciate any advice on the timing! Then, I'll continue to look through forums for advice on places to go, photograph, etc. Any tips for this time of year would be so greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Snow and snow-covered trees. Also snow-covered rocks, snow-covered mountains and snow-covered lakes. In February, you have to love snow. It's a great time for a photo trip, but not if you're looking for photos like this:

Are you prepared to do nighttime photography?

Nights are almost twice as long as the days. (In summer, the opposite.)
