Skating Mildred Lake

The Fair­mont Jasper Park Lodge main­tains a skat­ing ovals in the win­ter. If you ever want to skate on frozen lake, this is one of the places to do so. Nat­u­ral cracks do form on lakes, so beware that it does not have a per­fect sur­face when skat­ing. They also clear hock­ey rink size areas for hock­ey.

Swimming in Jasper National Park

Jasper Aquat­ic cen­tre has an indoor pool where you can swim indoors. Miet­te Hot Springs has var­i­ous pools, but real­ly made for swim­ming, more like soak­ing. If you have a hearty soul, you can just about swim on any lakes and rivers in Jasper Nation­al Park.

Swim­ming is great to keep in shape and also for sur­vival in Jasper. Spe­cial­ly when you have to ford a river to a des­ti­na­tion or work in the envi­ron­ment like river guid­ing or just play­ing in the water. Lakes and rivers are gen­er­al­ly very cold in Jasper because most of them are glacial fed.
