Cross-country Skiing

Cross-country & Back Country Skiing

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.

Moab Lake - Jasper
Wind swept ter­rain

From Maligne Lake, with its incom­pa­ra­ble wildlife view­ing, to Pyra­mid Road groomed trails, there are long stretch­es of prime ski­ing for you to explore.

Jasper National Park

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.

Maligne Lake

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 chal­leng­ing trail.

Edith Cavell Road

This 14km trail resides on the road of Edith Cavell. The trail is groomed when the clo­sure is lift­ed in mid Feb­ru­ary. It also has a Youth Hos­tel at the trail head into Ton­quin Val­ley. The trail starts off on a good grade till you reach the look­out on the road, then it mel­lows out towards the Hos­tel.

Athabasca Falls-Whirlpool Valley

The Athabas­ca Falls to Whirlpool Val­ley area has some great trails with ter­rif­ic views. One favourite 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. The 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.

The Pyramid Bench

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.

Marmot Meadows

You can access this trail from the Whistlers camp­ground entrance, head left once past the Whistlers camp­ground gates.

The Evelyn Creek

This loop is a 12 km, dif­fi­cult trail which fol­lows the Bald Hills fire road up to the Sky­line Trail.
