Skiers visiting in winter will certainly want to makerepparttar trip to Marmot Basin, a popular ski resort south of Jasper on 93A. In summer, however, it looks muchrepparttar 145965 same as any other deserted ski field, except forrepparttar 145966 breathtaking scenery.

One ofrepparttar 145967 final stops beforerepparttar 145968 road rejoinsrepparttar 145969 main highway isrepparttar 145970 Athabasca Falls. A raging torrent in spring,repparttar 145971 fierce waters tumble and crash over hundreds of smoothed boulders. The adventurouss can explore further uprepparttar 145972 river, but wear shoes with a good grip.

Whenrepparttar 145973 time comes to leave Jasper, there are two major routes. Those who arrived by train can continue their journey either east to Edmonton and on acrossrepparttar 145974 Canadian plains, or west to Vancouver. This route takes you on one ofrepparttar 145975 most spectacular train journeys inrepparttar 145976 world, with incredible scenery in every direction.

For those travelling by car, allow plenty of time to explorerepparttar 145977 230km Icefields Parkway which connects Jasper to Banff, with a slight detour to Lake Louise. The road follows a valley throughrepparttar 145978 Eastern Mountain Ranges, and offers spectacular scenery and plenty of wildlife. Byrepparttar 145979 end ofrepparttar 145980 day you'll probably have a stiff neck from craning upwards to seerepparttar 145981 view.

The Sunwapta Falls are set in chunky terraces of rock, and it's worth taking a short stroll torepparttar 145982 viewing platform. Peyto Lake is a beautiful glacial lake, but should only be visited whenrepparttar 145983 snow clears, otherwiserepparttar 145984 gentle uphill stroll can become a mammoth battle through waist high snow drifts.

Another beautiful stop isrepparttar 145985 Tangle Falls. Intrepid visitors can do some exploring here, rewarded by a close up look atrepparttar 145986 rushing waters. The best known stop, however, is Athabasca Glacier. This glacier has been steadily retreating for years, and there are date markers so you can seerepparttar 145987 gradual regression. It is possible to take a truck ride onrepparttar 145988 ice, or you can simply walk fromrepparttar 145989 car park. Be warned -repparttar 145990 weather can change very rapidly during your visit, so be prepared.

The Weeping Wall is particularly interesting after or during rain, with thousands of tiny waterfalls pouring down its rough faces. And for those nature lovers with a penchant for moose, try visiting Waterfowl Lake at either end ofrepparttar 145991 day. It's home to a number of these huge creatures.

The Icefields Parkway continues on to Lake Louise,repparttar 145992 magnificent setting for scenes inrepparttar 145993 movie "The Bodyguard". Finallyrepparttar 145994 road reaches Banff, leavingrepparttar 145995 peace and quiet ofrepparttar 145996 wilder Jasper behind for good.

Exploringrepparttar 145997 Canadian Rockies is a must for lovers of rugged, mountain scenery. For those who want to experiencerepparttar 145998 Rockies and its wildlife as closely as possible to how it would have been centuries ago, Jasper isrepparttar 145999 perfect base. The Rockies are waiting for you.
