    Koodo and Fido are the pay as you go brands for Rogers and Telus, the two biggest mobile providers. Tons of free wifi in Canada, basically anywhere you can sit down for coffee will have it (Maccas, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, independent shops) plus most supermarkets and fast food places. And almost all lodging will have free wifi. So you will need less data than you think.

    I have only used free wi-fi for our last 3 trips, and I don't think its really necessary to incur the extra expense of purchasing unless you need, for example, work to call you while you are away

    If you have kids or other members you want to keep in touch with on the mountain, think about grabbing some walky talkies from Canadian Tire

    We used the seven eleven Speakout sim card
    Just pick it up at any store. Although first store we went to in Vancouver only had 1 left.

    Was fairly straightforward to setup and use. Good if we were separated anywhere for a while
