    This is a great DIY, day drive between Banff and Jasper with many short viewing points and even hikes to stretch your legs as you make your way there. Don't miss Peyto Lake as it equals Banff's Lake Louise and Lake Moraine's beauty. The Rocky Mountain range on both sides of the highway are close, towering, and unforgettable. It gave new meaning to "Oh Canada!" Once we arrived in Jasper, we took a wildlife day tour with Pursuit and were fortunate to see a Grizzly bear and 2 cubs along with a black bear along the way to Jasper's Lake Maligne.

    Very crowded and steep canyon. The views are spectacular and worth seeing. We got there at 9 am and it was busy! Lots of single file lines and groups crowding the lookouts. I have knee issues and to the firth bridge and back was a lot of stairs and slippery rocks to walk on. I’m glad I did it though.

    Must add this to your list of viewings for this trip. Make sure to carry a fall jacket, light gloves, a warm cap and sunglasses. Beautiful experience!

    Definitely worth a short detour out of Jasper. An hour or so was enough, but a lovely walk out to the island over the bridge. There are some chairs scattered around and it was so quiet in March that we had the island to ourselves. Serenity plus🙏

    We booked last minute for the first tram of the day and we’re glad we did. Don’t expect to turn up and get on one, they are packed! What you need to realise is that there are only 2 gondolas on action so the number of people is very restricted.

    However! The lower number of people means that there aren’t hordes stomping around the mountain! We chose a sunny morning, and as it was mid June there was still snow at the top when we did the walk up to the summit. It was definitely winter clothing weather.

    The views from the top of Jasper and the surrounding mountains are seriously impressive though. Just be prepared to book in advance and be squeezed into a gondola cheek by jowl with 20 other people.

    This was a fun time. We opted for only doing the Planetarium as the night sky stays light so late you’d need to go later in the evening to use the telescope and that didn’t work with our schedule. Nicole was wonderful. She went above and beyond in explaining everything and was as sweet as can be. She made our experience quite memorable.

    While the road is mostly very flat and well made, I did see two major accidents along the way. September was dry and the road smooth. Along the way there are many scenic places to stop, with mountain views, waterfalls, lakes. Food stops are not cheap, so it is better to stock up in Jasper or Banff.

    I was at Marmot Basin on Friday skiing mid mountain. Love Marmot for the runs and the warm friendly staff and patrons. That is until I ran into Joey, a ski instructor with snow school on Basin run. His customer service was appalling. Joey was instructing a group of about 10 people and did not care that he was rude to people outside his group. I would not recommend taking lessons from Joey. The ski hill is lovely and the majority of staff are great, friendly, personable and wonderful to deal with.

    Such a fun evening.
    You are encouraged to have a drink at the bar and chat to the actors before the show begins. They are extremely welcoming and love to chat to their audience.
    The show is hilarious and you recognise and are familiar with each sketch as you’ve been doing exactly the same things throughout your time in Jasper.
    The warmth for this beautiful town is clear throughout their performance - who doesn’t LOVE Jasper?

    After a tuck-in of poached eggs, whole wheat toast with butter and jam, Greek salad and hot coffee, Christian met me at the BRIGHT SPOT FAMILY RESTAURANT on Connaught Drive. It was raining. I changed into the rain pants that Sarah had lent me the day before. And Christian gave me hiking gaiters for the snow. And hiking poles. We headed down Highway 16 to Maligne Lake Road. We stopped to view an eagle perched just outside its nest. Then, on to Maligne Lake. On the way, Christian noticed a two-year-old bear and a silver fox. We also saw a mother bear with two cubs from the parking lot. And we met the Park Warden--Heidi! The hike on the Bald Hills Loop was exhilarating. We hiked through light snow up to where the snow from last winter had lingered--about a foot deep. We did not go all the way to the summit. Christian came equipped with waterproof foam sit pads. He tossed them down on the snow for lunch--with hot tea. I brought the maple cookies! On our way down, Christian and I made a snow-entity! After the hike, Christian took the time to show me Maligne Lake where he used to work as a guide on the boats. Then, we had a leisurely drive back to Jasper--and more coffee!! Merci splendidement Christian! AnnA
