Caving Maligne Canyon

Often I get a ques­tion on what is there to do in Jasper in the win­ter oth­er than ski­ing. I usu­al­ly reply to them to go through explorejasper.com’s web­site and search for activ­i­ties in the win­ter and you will find there are a lot more than just ski­ing in Jasper Nation­al Park. This is one of those activ­i­ties you can do most­ly in the win­ter, where frozen ground­wa­ter helps you bridge the gap to areas not acces­si­ble in the sum­mer. This cave is locat­ed in Maligne Canyon and it is not adver­tised by Parks Cana­da due to the fact that there are some risk involved. But I leave that up to you to decide.

One thought on “Caving Maligne Canyon”

  1. Hi — a thriller I wrote (Last Tracks) starts in Jasper. There is a cave scene. The book has been optioned for film and the gen­tle­man who is writ­ing the script has writ­ten attack­ing bats into the scene. I’ve told him that the lit­tle dears hiber­nate in the win­ter and even if they did wake up, they would be unlike­ly to behave as he has por­trayed the scene. I’m try­ing to find some­one who knows some­thing about bats in Jasper.
