To have a great Jasper experience, it’s generally a prerequisite that you be in Jasper. But in a time when that might not be an option for many people, there are still ways to enjoy your favourite mountain town and national park.
For stunning photography of the mountains, wildlife and more, we always recommend following Tourism Jasper on social media. Or to absorb some of the natural zen of being in a natural environment, join an online yoga class from Jasper Wellness. Also, to give yourself (or a loved one) a dose of excitement for the future there’s always the option of getting a gift card to one of the local activity providers.
But to really feel like you’ve got your boots on the ground, check in on the following three livestreams that will give you minute-by-minute updates on the conditions at the ski hill, the Athabasca River Valley, and one of Jasper’s most famous lakes.
Marmot Basin livestream
Is fresh pow calling your name? Marmot Basin ski resort has many COVID-19 friendly procedures in place, and their 360° web cam lets you see the scene on the mountain before venturing out.
Maligne Lake livestream
Although it’s closed for the winter, during the warmer months you can check in on the conditions at Maligne Lake with this Pursuit webcam that overlooks the water. Pursuit also has another seasonal webcam that shows the conditions at the Columbia Icefield Skywalk/Icefields Parkway.
Getting into the alpine is not an easy thing to do in winter. Luckily, the webcam at the upper station of the Jasper SkyTram will give you a bird’s eye view of the conditions of Jasper and the surrounding areas.
