Jasper is beautiful in every season, and those in the capital region are fortunate to be just a few short hours' drive away from the mountains, wildlife and townsite, whether it's camping or ski season.
In late fall, i.e. November, Jasper has some special delights. Before skiers descend, the low season allows crowd-free access to the town's restaurants, bars and shops, abundant elk sightings and special events happening at Jasper Park Lodge. Here's three highlights of Jasper in November.
