Jasper in Canada Resort Guide

Jasper is a small, friendly traditional frontier town which lies amidst the beautiful Rocky Mountain National park where caribou, moose and elk are among the local inhabitants to wander the streets after dark. The Marmot Basin ski area has a reputation for very dry, fluffy powder snow and offers over 1000 acres of skiable terrain, but it is a 20 minute drive from Jasper itself. Snow reliability for Marmot Basin is generally pretty good, except perhaps late season, and so far snowmaking is not really very extensive. A new transportation service to Jasper will be available for the 2000/2001 season. The snow train to Jasper will make the long trip from Vancouver and Winnipeg and stops in between a much more pleasurable experience.


Accomodation & Après Ski

Accomodation varies with more than 12 decent hotesl including the massive Jasper Park Lodge by Lac Beauvert which offers everything from suites, to bungalows in their grounds; with its own resturants, leisure club, heated outdoor pool and shopping centre. The other main hotels are the Chateau Jasper and the Whistler Inn. Despite there being just two main streets in Jasper there is a reasonable choice of places to eat. Overall Jasper does tend to be a stop off for a few days as part of a tour of other centres.
