Venture Beyond: The Series

For well over a century people have wandered from the beaten path to find these mountains. After all, Jasper is for the curious. The playful and prepared. The adaptable of mind and body. The explorers who think “maybe just a bit further.” From here, set out the scouts of wild and amazing. The protectors of our natural world. The collectors of stories.

Here, meet some of the locals who make Jasper the extraordinary place it is.


The Backcountry Foodie | Estelle Blanchette

Like many outdoor enthusiasts, Estelle Blanchette cares about food. It’s fuel on long hikes, warmth on cold days, and joy shared with campmates. But the longtime Jasper local wanted to eat *well* (and bring wine) without breaking her back in the process. So she bought a dehydrator and turned her insatiable imagination toward culinary innovation. Now she has fancier meals in in the backcountry than many people cook in their home kitchens.
