Edmonton embraces winter and is a perfect start to your winter adventure in The Rockies. The city has a youthful feel to it, with its hip start-ups and cool cafés. Jasper is known for being one of the most picturesque, and the natural beauty of Marmot Basin ski resort is striking.
Edmonton is a young city with hip start-ups, cool cafes and locals that love any excuse to go out on the town. From June through August, the sun can rise as early as 5:00am, and sets as late as 10:00pm, so that’s 17 hours of vitamin D and plenty of time to pack in warm-weather activities. Jasper is known for being one of the most picturesque resorts and this easy-going alpine town has locals that treat you like long-lost pals, plus there's always something amazing and outdoorsy to do. The mountain town's got a lot to love: historic charm, super beautiful natural surroundings, and all the amenities you could ask for. There’s a reason everybody’s heard of Banff.
