Jasper in January

Jasper celebrates being the Winterest at the 28th annual Jasper in January.

While many people will flee for warmer climates as the snow begins to fall, there are some – the true adventurer – who will rush to welcome the snow and ice with open arms.

Jasper in January invites those brave explorers to Jasper, where authentic Canadian winter fun can be experienced all season long. Strap on some snowshoes and explore some otherwise unreachable paths, or hop on a dog sled and venture beyond the limits of a day hike. With three core weekends, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone!



Frosty's Cross Country Endurance Race

For the trailblazers who live to take on winter face to face, we have no shortage of activities suited for all levels.  Like Canada’s first ever Jasper Fat Bike Race & Summit Powered by Frosty’s Fat Bike Race Series.  Register for all races or take your pick from 4 unique rides between January 12-14th. For a full list of Frosty's events and adventurous outings throughout Jasper in January, visit our website.


Some adventurers are equally as happy racing to the snack stand as the ski stand.

After working up an appetite in the crisp January air, hang up your snowshoes, skis and crampons and head downtown to indulge in some local culinary treats. Make sure to check out these not-to-be-missed events!

ATCO Street Party

Being surrounded by towering mountains and glistening frozen lakes tends to bring out both the active adventurer and the appreciative artist.

After exploring the 11,000 square kilometres of Jasper National Park, spend some time with local artists like Jason Bartziokas and Luuk Wijk at the Museum and  take in some live music from bands like Devon Coyote, Johnny McCuaig Band, and Siiines.

Rejuvenate your body and soul at the Lolë Wellness Weekend with a weekend of yoga, healthy meals, tea, and time with like-minded individuals.
