What’s the weather like in Banff in July?
The Banff weather in July is the warmest all year, making this famous Canadian ski resort very popular with sun seekers. Visitors love exploring the Rocky Mountains and the amazing Banff Nation Park in the warm and pleasant climate.
Even though summer’s in full swing, the weather is quite changeable at such high ground in the Rockies. There could be some very light snowfall this month, but in general the surrounding hills of Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain are bathed in sunshine and lush green scenery takes hold. Temperatures are much cooler the higher you travel, though.
