Area closures in Jasper National Park for caribou in winter. No backcountry access in the Tonquin, Brazeau, and north boundary regions of the park. For details follow the “Seasonal closures” link in the Resources below (bottom of page).
The avalanche danger is variable and can range from Low to High. Travelling early in the day is recommended, as conditions can change rapidly in short periods of time due to daytime warming. Pay careful attention to the integrity of surface crusts formed overnight and rising air temperatures during the day. Dry slab avalanche danger may also exist during spring snow storms.
Spring is finally here!
