Jasper vacation rentals

Jutting to the top of the Rockies in Jasper

Spear-like pine trees pockmark the moraines. Glaciers peer over the tops of pyramid-shaped mountains. Mirror-like lakes sugared with mineral deposits glimmer between the summits. Welcome to the very heart of the Rockies, where sits little Jasper town and its patchwork of ski lodges, cozy Jasper vacation rentals, and intrepid Canadian sports outfitters. For outdoors adventurers, there's perhaps nowhere better on the planet. Hiking, mountain biking, alpine skiing, gorging, rafting, kayaking and more are all just on the doorstep. A clutch of hot springs and spas brings up the more relaxing end of the bargain.

Get adventurous in Jasper

There are times when Jasper can seem tailor-made for the intrepid adventurer. Skiing and snowboarding dominate the surrounding Rockies during the colder months of the year, while the spring thaws herald in sessions of whitewater rafting, hiking the mighty peaks of the Jasper National Park, and conquering the long and cruisy bike runs. Grizzly bears and sturdy mountain rams also await on wildlife safaris into the Alberta backcountry, while motorbiking tours around the highways and helicopter flyovers of the glaciers could also be on the menu.

Pistes and peaks in Jasper

Powder hounds assemble on the pistes of Marmot Basin when the first snows hit the peaks each year. After all, 86 runs and 3,000 feet of vertical drop can't be wrong. When the sun shines, folk prefer the trails of the Jasper National Park. Some weave up to photogenic Maligne Lake, while others scale the meadows to the tops of Opal Peak. Back in town and the Den Wildlife Museum offers something for a rainy day _ get ready for encounters with the fearsome grizzly bear, the prowling cougar, elks and highland rams.

Jasper's seasonal joys

Jasper has something up its sleeve whatever the season. Many will flock to the town in search of ski lodges and Jasper vacation rentals close to Marmot Basin when the snows fall in winter, between December and March. Others will wait for the springtime of April and May, when the hiking trails pass blooming wildflower meadows. Others will prefer the high summer, which sees the mountain lakes of Maligne and beyond shimmering beneath the peaks. Fall, meanwhile, has fewer visitors, lower rates, and some excellent trekking conditions.

Jasper is shrouded by summits

Jasper sits in the very heart of its eponymous national park _ Jasper National Park. This is one of the most iconic in all of Canada. It hosts a great swath of the Alberta Rockies, and houses some of the last remaining natural habitats of the North American Grizzly Bear. Throw in a medley of glaciers and snow-doused ski fields, of soaring peaks and gushing whitewater rivers, and it's easy to see how Jasper vacation rentals have become the veritable base for adventure travelers that they are today.
