Jasper in January

Two weeks of winter celebrations take over Jasper, with skiing and snowboarding, skating, sleigh rides, music and food. 

Festival Dates: -
Location: Jasper, Alberta

Jasper's signature Jasper in January festival has been running for over 30 years!

Each year, Jasper in January fills the last two weeks of January with great deals on ski, spa and multi-day stays. Events take place at the ski hill, on the streets of town and around the park. And Marmot Basin, local accommodations and restaurants offer deals and savings to sweeten the pot. 

This is your chance to shred the slopes, enjoy some fine nosh, enjoy colourful winter nights and soak up the magic of Jasper - and get in a hug with Jasper the Bear!
