How cold in May?

by anna&kym

We`ve been advised to wear layers while travelling through Banff, Jasper,Vancouver and Victoria and to expect frequent changes in the weather but just how cold is cold.Here in Australia our colder days are about 11-15 degrees celsius so what are average night/day temperatures during early May?Should we be packing seriously warm stuff or will we be ok with t-shirts, windcheaters and lightweight jackets?
I thought I had this all worked out but am starting to panic now that I have to decide what to actually pack!! Thanks for any suggestions. Anna&Kym

Jasper is not too much different than Banff. I expect temps can range from around 15C to maybe around -5C at night. I would carry a mid-weight fleece jacket that will fit under your windcheater, light gloves and stocking hat. If you plan on seeing the Columbia Icefields or be up at high altitudes, or as evening comes on, the wind can be quite chilly. T shirts are ok when you are out in the sun and it's quite warm. Too early for shorts, though you could probably wear those in Vancouver and Victoria. And if worst comes to worst, you can purchase extra clothing here if you're cold or too hot.

Having been in Vancouver and Victoria in late April last year I would say you are dressing for those places. We were in Banff/Lake Louise in late May a number of years ago. Lake Louise is still frozen at that time. We thought we would hike to the base of the Victoria Glacier at the south end of Lake Louise. We did not get too far as the snow was so deep.The road to Morraine Lake was open but there was so much snow and ice at the Lake Parking lot there was very little space to park . There is usually a good wind in that valley so it was "COLD".You need winter clothes . The drive to the Columbia Ice Fields was OK but there was a strong wind the day we were there and it was WINTER conditions . But in the valleys, when there was no wind , even at night light jackets. On the last day ( day 4 ) every thing warmed up and if your went hiking you really did not need a jacket.

You'll see a few Canadians wearing shorts in sun, rain, wind and occasionally snow. If you're from a warm climate, expect to find it cold for you, if not for us.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts!I know we`ll be safe with layers,I`ll pack extra medium weight though.Anna&Kym

MadameX is right about the weather conditions and in her advice as to the clothes to wear.
The climate ("global warming") is changing, and that means one of two things for the local weather - it'll be either warmer than "normal" (and already this year there has been a lot less snow and much warmer than average temps over the winter, and the temps for Banff right now - beginning of April - are in the +10C range during the day), or there will be unusual extremes (either very hot, or very cold). Just be prepared, and as suggested by madameX - you can always add warmer clothes by purchasing them here (if needed). Banff has lots of clothing stores.

Travel Tips for Jasper

VIA TRAIN STATION

by LoriPori

No town would be complete without a train station and Jasper has a beautiful one. The building is made of stone and rock. You can get your train tickets here and there is also a Greyhound ticket office here too.

At Home in the Mountains

by DSwede

In the heart of Jasper NP, this is definitely a small mountain town that makes me feel at home.

I've been through here a few times, winter and summer both. It helps having spent ample time in Edmonton.

The problem with Jasper is that it lures people to live here with its beauty, but then leaves many frustrated with the expensive cost of living. Many locals have to work two jobs to make ends meet.

(for more pictures, feel free to visit my Canada Gallery. If you enjoy the pictures, please leave a comment.)

Feel free to visit my Alberta page for more thoughts on the province.

Was this city named after me?

by Veghel

"Beautiful, cold place!"

I visited Jasper late summer 2003. Jasper is the biggest 'city' in the region, but is not really a place where you want to stay for more than a couple of nights. Must do's are the Jasper Tramway and Maligne Lake.

"Maligne Canyon, Jasper"

The Maligne River cuts through layers of limestone to create this spectcular canyon just south of Jasper. In the winter large icicles form and the canyon becomes a fairyland and many hikers explore it during the winter.

Roche Miette and its towering sheer cliffs create a portal to Jasper along Highway 16 near the Park entrance gate. A side road nearby leads to Miette Hot Springs.

Bull elk are a frequent sight along the highway as you approach Jasper.
