Jasper takes the chill out of January
If you happened to take a spur of the moment Rocky Mountains winter break in Jasper this month, expect to see more than magnificent snow-capped mountains, copious elk and a few die-hard winter sports enthusiasts. In fact, you may just witness extreme flying snowballs, an intriguing number of chili connoisseurs and infinitely more skiers and snowboarders than some other resorts see in the height of the ski season.
So what is the reason for this fascinating phenomenon? It’s known as “‘Jasper in January’.”
