Ski Touring Around the Park
The winter wonderland offers endless views on the ski hill, but many have yet to explore the backcountry. There is powder to be found and terrain to be explored. Jasper National Park offers a variety of backcountry experiences from short day trips to multi-day glacier adventures. Untracked powder awaits; learn more below and book your next tour.
Please note: the backcountry experiences can be more dangerous and Parks Canada advises that you prepare accordingly. Please review their ski touring, alpine ski touring, and ski mountaineering guide as a benchmark for preparation for your trip.
Cross-Country Ski Around the Park
Jasper National Park is the perfect place to dust off those cross-country skis to glide around the park as the snow glitters around you. Cross-country skiing is the winter ‘hike’ that you want to experience. It is the perfect thing to do before cozying up with that cup of hot cocoa (or mulled wine) in front of the roaring fireplace.
Parks Canada does an excellent job of decoding the trails around Jasper. They have broken it out into three categories mirroring that of downhill skiing, and you will find green trails are the easier, black is the hardest and blue is somewhere in the middle.
