We are planning our trip for September or October of 2006. Is that time of year too "wintery"? Will there be snow and ice everywhere? I was under the impression that it will NOT be like that but please correct me if I'm wrong. I know this has been posted on before but bear with me! Also, is early fall considered the off time for vacationers? Will room rates be cheaper at this time? Or do I have it backwards? Thanks for any info.
