New Year’s Eve is a fantastic celebration in all parts of the world, but there is something about being surrounded by snow in the majestic Canadian Rockies that will make New Year 2016-2017 in Jasper difficult to beat. Hotels in Jasper are sure to be busy on December 31 and early reservations are strongly recommended.

No Vacancy ?
