Default Banff in the first week of October

I'm planning to visit Banff National Park in the first week of October of this year.

Is it a good time to visit Banff?

Should I be worried about the weather and road closures?

The last time I've been to Banff was in 1994 and it was the summer, so things definately must have changed.

Good time for what? Pretty vague on what it is you want. What road closures? Why would you worry about the weather? Could be really nice, could be snowing.

Look up the Banff and Lake Louise web cams on the web to see for yourself.

This weekend the larches are in their golden prime. The fall is my favorite time of year in the mountains.

Here's a report I did in 2009 around that time. I'm also thinking of going back around the first week of Oct. as well.
