I'm an Aussie gal (23) coming with my ma (62) to Seattle during December to visit my brother (27) who lives there.
We are planning a round road trip for about 10 days or so (flexible) mid-Dec to see the surrounding aread and a bit of Canada. Suggested destinations at the moment are:
Seattle-Portland-Olympia NP-Vancouver Island (somewhere)-Vancouver-Whistler-Cascades NP-Seattle.
We are very keen to get some ski-boarding done at Whistler and the Cascades (my first time).
I'd love some general advice on roads at this time of the year, advice for booking accommodation (do we need to or not, what's the best approach, any reccommendations etc), which city should we visit on Vancouver Island, other destinations to go, attractions to see etc, basically any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!
