Western Adventures in Jasper

Aug. 10, 2016
By Naomi Witherick

For centuries Indigenous people navigated the Canadian Rockies on horseback. And when traders like David Thompson arrived in 1811, horses were used to negotiate northern trading routes and establish trade posts.

Follow in their footsteps and have an old time western adventure in Jasper. Here are the horseback rides, rodeo events and country style steakhouses not to miss this summer. Cowboy hats at the ready…

8 Reasons We Love Jasper’s Food Scene

Jan. 14, 2016
By Afton Aikens, Ashley Materi & John Strugnell

In winter, Jasper has great skiing at Marmot Basin and in the backcountry. And of course, there are those stunning, snow-draped mountains. After your day in Jasper’s outdoor playground ends (or begins), you’ll love a meal at one of the many fantastic restaurants in town. Here’s why we do.

1. Indian Cuisine
Jasper Curry House is the first in town to offer authentic Indian food. Chef/owner Gopala Shelke’s menu includes specialties from a tandoor oven. The cylindrical clay oven concentrates heat from fiery coals so foods infuse with rich flavours and cook at a consistent temperature. Try the Murg Malai Tikka (chicken with yogurt, crushed cashews and cheese) for a treat.

2. Hearty Brews
Seeking a robust beer? With notes of cloves and molasses, Jasper Brewing Co.’s Rockhopper IPA has a strong hoppy flavour and is a favourite pour (also available at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s Emerald Lounge). At The Inn Grill, Edmonton-brewed Alley Kat Amber Ale’s caramel malts bring out a full-bodied sweetness balanced by a light aromatic hop. (more…)
