THE POOR WEATHER ROUTE
Drive time: 4 hours
The Cowboy Trail (Hwy 22) can be a challenge in poor weather; if difficult road conditions are likely, it is best to take this alternate route.
Head South out of Calgary on Highway #2 toward Fort McLeod. This will bring you directly to the Crowsnest Highway, Highway #3. Turn west on Highway #3. Take Hwy# directly to Fernie.”
