5 Picture Perfect Winter Photography Locations in Jasper National Park

Beautiful photography doesn’t have to stop when the weather drops!


Though it may be tempting to hibernate inside this winter with a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite movie, it’s time to layer up, grab your gear and explore all of Jasper’s gorgeous winter scenery through your camera lens! 

1. Maligne Canyon

One of the most spectacular gorges in the Canadian Rockies, Maligne Canyon features sheer limestone walls that plunge to depths of over 50 meters. During the winter months, join Maligne Adventures for a Maligne Canyon Icewalk and capture waterfalls frozen in time. If you’re looking for more of an adrenaline rush, go for some world class ice climbing with Rockaboo Adventures (and bring your GoPro if you have one!)

2. Pyramid Lake and Pyramid Lake Island

As soon as you reach the bridge to Pyramid Lake Island, you’ll understand why photographers flock to this location. In the wintertime, the combination of the icy lake and snowcapped spruce trees creates some of the most magical photographs. 

3. Marmot Basin Ski Resort

Let’s face it – epic winter pictures are guaranteed when you’re 3,000 feet in the air on a mountaintop! Take your DSLR, GoPro or smartphone up the mountain with you for some ski and snowboard action shots (and beautiful backdrops of the surrounding peaks of course).

4. Maligne Lake

Want to feel like you just stepped into a snow globe? Grab a pair of snowshoes, some cross country skis or a fat bike and head out to the largest glacially fed lake in the Canadian Rockies for some monumental photos. 

5. The Columbia Icefield

The Columbia Icefield, the largest icefield in the Rocky Mountains of North America, is the perfect photo location for all those interested in capturing the beauty of some of the most breathtaking glaciers in the world.
