Jasper, Alberta in Jasper National Park is a small town nestled in a valley between the mountains near the West boundary of the province of Alberta. The population in the 1970s hovered around 3,000 and today is still only about 4,664. The population swells during both summer tourist and winter skiing seasons.
Every January, they host Jasper in January near the end of January, with special pricing on room rates and at the ski hill. Every Christmas, they decorate to make the season special for their residents and guests. The early years.
These shots are from early April 2019 (not truly winter, but still ski season).
Jasper is the perfect little mountain town with just enough amenities to satisfy all.
