Description

This small XC ski area utilizes the loop roads of a summer campground by grooming them for skiing when they are covered in snow.

It's next to the Athabasca River, with amazing wintry views from the bank.

Mapped here is the outer loop, but you will also find shorter inner loops.

There's a good variety of short and easy trails, groomed for both classic and skate.

This is a good place for the whole family to try cross-country skiing.

You can rent equipment in the town of Jasper. Sources: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/ab/jasper/activ/activ-experience/hiver-winter/carteski-skimaps http://parkscanadahistory.com/brochures/jasper/winter-trails-e-2012.pdf
