Over 300 kilometres of trails make Jasper one of the largest cross-country ski areas in Canada. Right from your doorstep, groomed trails take you through scores of beautiful valleys, past stunning lakes and mountain scenery. Whether you enjoy short loops with gentle slopes and spectacular sights, or longer, more challenging routes, Jasper National Park is full of breath-taking cross-country adventures. From Maligne Lake, with its incomprable wildlife viewing, to Pyramid Bench's groomed trails.
Offers some of Canada's best cross-country skiing. Close to the townsite, Whistlers Campground's loop and the The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge's 26 kilometres of gently graded trails are just minutes away.
Offers some of the best cross-country skiing in the park. For novice skiers, the Lake Trail loop or either of the Moose Lake Trail offer easy skiing with a couple of gentle descents. More advanced skiers find the 7.3 km Lorraine Lake loop a more challanging trail.
Has some great trails with terrific views. One favorite is the 18 km Moab Lake Trail, which starts at the Meeting of the Waters picnic area 20 kilometres south of Jasper on highway 93A. Whirlpool Campground Trail is an easy 4.5 kilometres starting at the Moab Lake trailhead reached via the Athabasca Falls turnoff on the Icefield Parkway.
Offers moderate trails that begin off Pyramid Lake Road. You can either ski right from town or drive up to one of the two parking areas near Pyramid Lake. Bench trails include the Mina/Riley Loop, a 6 to 7km intermediate trail that follows gently sloping terrain or the shorter 4.7 km Pyramid Bench Loop which offers spectacular views of the Athabasca Valley.
This loop is a 12 km, difficult trail which follows the Bald Hills fire road up to the Skyline Trail.
