First up, a geography lesson. At the confluence of the Athabasca and Miette Rivers, Jasper sits in one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. This is the epicenter of the Canadian Rockies, a hub for some of the raddest winter adventures you can possibly imagine in and around Jasper National Park and the surrounding ranges.
This video gives you just a taste of winter options: trekking in Maligne Canyon, driving the Icefields Parkway, exploring Mount Fryatt and the Columbia Icefield, stargazing in Jasper's Dark Sky Preserve, and carving lines at Marmot Basin ski resort. You have to see it for yourself: This area is completely next-level.
