Trip Description:

Paddle some easy gems in Jasper while the opportunity still exists before whirling disease makes it this far north and closes the lakes. Be prepared for all kinds of weather, as it's been 42 degrees in late June in Jasper (2021), and a high of 3 degrees with wet snow on the solstice in another year. Camp on almost the longest day of the year amongst the spruce trees at Snaring campground. Participants must register with the trip coordinator by 16 June.
