1. Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont: Three Canadian jewellers are featured here, including Dorothée Rosen. Gallery associate Sarah Budd says Rosen’s rings are “graceful and comfortable to wear.”
2. Lolë: Born in Montreal in 2002, this brand of women’s activewear now has an impeccably merchandised store in Jasper. Yoga, outdoor sport and casual styles are offered in wide price ranges; $100 buys a water repellent, down filled, highly packable Emeline jacket with hood (and pony tail opening).
Free meet-up activities are source of pride for the athletic owner Dave Macdowell. Ambassadors conduct weekly sessions including yoga, Pilates, x-c skiing and snowshoeing; call the store or check Facebook for schedules.
3. Bear’s Paw Bakery: Their Health Bar from is packed with high-energy ingredients that taste great—oatmeal, Rice Krispies, almonds, coconut, sesame and sunflower seeds, bran, chocolate and marshmallows. “It travels well, is soft and chewy, and keeps you going while you’re out enjoying Jasper,” says bakery owner Kimberley Stark.
4. Jasper Rock & Jade: This store displays colourful ammolite from Korite International, the world’s biggest producer of this found-only-in-Alberta gemstone.
