Après Ski

There’s a range of eating options in Jasper, much like most of Alberta's towns.  Fine dining then can be found at Edith Cavell, or the Tonquin Rib Village along with a variety of standard fast food chain restaurants.
The nightlife in Jasper is low-key, as there are a few lively bars offering a great crowd, pool and many screens for watching sports.  Then, there’s the Atha-Bar, an after-hours bar with live music and dance, among the most popular in Alberta.
