Dennis PM member Vic Harder he should be able give you some good info.
Do you plan to take the Cassiar Hwy? It's a great route check my 2009 Alaskan trip on my blog for some photos.
Have a great trip.

Go up one and back the other? Both routes have spectacular sections, but your biggest concern is wildfire. We have twice in our travels had to take a different route than 97 and 93 has also had closures.

A + to the Cassiar highway - and it's less likely to have smoke from fires to the east. We drove it last fall - Portland, Vancouver Island, ferry to Prince Rupert, and then north. We had one day of smoke and only one small wildfire along the route

Some useful wildfire & smoke maps:

There are also Android and iPhone and iPhone apps. I use

One leg of your trip should include the section of road known as the "Icefields Parkway". It goes between Lake Louise and Jasper. One of the top 10 scenic drives in the world. If you search for trip reports/planning up to Alaska you should find several. Craig333 has made the trip more than once, as I recall. I've yet to go, although the trip is planned out and ready to execute on... just need 4 months with no family/work/grandkid obligations!
