One of our favorite things to do in Jasper during the winter is view wildlife! Bears hibernate during the cold winter months up here, but there is still plenty to see with elk, deer, sheep, goats, coyotes, osprey, wolves, moose, and more calling this area their home. To see all the best spots as well as a more in-depth look at how these animals contribute to the diversity of this area and how they survive the winter, you can take a Wildlife Discovery Tour from many different outposts in Jasper.

Ice Skating

When the temps drop below freezing - many of Jasper's lakes completely freeze over - allowing visitors to experience them in a completely different way as they glide across the crystal blue ice. Depending on when you arrive in Jasper, locals set up outdoor skating rinks with views of the stunning snow-capped mountains all around. The best spots to skate include Lac Beauvert, Lake Mildred, and Pyramid Lake.
