WELCOME TO JASPER
Venture beyond crowded resorts to the authentic mountain town of Jasper. Retaining its timeless appeal by being unpretentious — an intimate community that originated as a railway town that just happens to be in the middle of some of the most gorgeous protected wilderness in the world. Jasper is the perfect base for all of your winter adventures, where wildlife is abundant and you’re sure to see plenty of four-legged locals such as elk, deer, wolves and lynx in their natural environment.
Everyone leaves the mountain at the end of a ski day to mix with the locals who are quick with a smile and a tale or two as they share their slice of heaven with visitors. Enjoy Canadian and international cuisine and a lively night scene while staying in quaint inns, luxurious lodges or rustic cabins.
The town of Jasper is in the heart of Jasper National Park. The park’s shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and evergreen forest — all surrounded by towering mountains — are some of the reasons the park was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s one of only 15 such sites in Canada. At 11,228 square kilometres (4,335 square miles), Jasper National Park is also Canada's largest park in the Rocky Mountains.
Located in the breathtaking, vast and ruggedly mountainous landscape of Jasper National Park - 11,000 square kilometers of mountain wilderness and a part of the UNESCO Canadian Rockies World Heritage Site. There are endless activities that you can do in Jasper apart from ski:
- Try snowshoeing to enjoy the stunning scenery at a slower pace. Take it all in as you explore the mountain wilderness, search for animal tracks, and try to spot the highly camouflaged ptarmigan with its beautiful white feathers for the winter.
- Drive down the Icefields Parkway, a 140-mile stretch of truly spectacular road which links Jasper and Banff National Parks, with never-ending of spectacular peaks and the celebrated Columbia Icefield.
- Enjoy cross-country skiing right from your doorstep, with a multitude of groomed trails to take you through scores of beautiful valleys, past stunning lakes and mountain scenery. Whether you enjoy short loops with gentle slopes and spectacular sights, or longer, more challenging routes, Jasper National Park is full of breath-taking cross-country adventures.
- Experience the Maligne Canyon ice walk along the frozen riverbed beneath towering limestone walls. Maligne Canyon is the deepest accessible canyon in Jasper National Park; where you will explore frozen waterfalls, ice caves, and incredible ice formations.
- Find all the great wildlife in Jasper National Park! Sundog Tours has knowledgeable guides that are trained to seek out all of the park’s most iconic creatures. Big or small, there are lots of animals to see in Jasper! Elk, deer, sheep, goats, coyotes, wolves, and moose are just a sample of Jasper’s wild mountain fauna. Learn all about the ways these animals contribute to the rich diversity of the National Park and how they survive the mountain winters.
- Take a half day train excursion due west across Yellowhead pass, along the Fraser River, skirting the vast Moose Lake (seven miles long), past Mount Robson (at just over 13,000ft it’s the highest point in Canada) to the tiny community of Dunster.
- Try Dog Sledding. A classic Canadian winter experience; Dog Sledding connects you to the past as you wind your way through the mountains in the same way as the original explorers of Jasper National Park.
- What could be more Canadian than skating on a frozen Rocky Mountain Lake? Over the years, skating has become an indoor activity, something you do in covered rinks, hockey arenas, even shopping malls. But you haven’t really skated until you’ve enjoyed a day on a frozen lake or river, surrounded by the rugged beauty of Jasper National Park.
