    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: collapsable cooler so that you can bring it back home. We bought a styrofoam one but had to leave it in the cabin as we could not bring it on the plane.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: dress in layers
    good hiking boots
    rain poncho to cover your backpack

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: two hiking sticks to help with the steeper grades

    It can still get cold...

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even if you are going to Jasper in the spring months of April and May, the temperatures can still get close to zero and you may even see snow. Make sure you bring sweaters, mitts and a scarf, just in case you need them.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Always bring sunscreen and sunglasses, even if it is not the middle of summer. The UV rating tends to be higher in the mountains, especially at higher elevations, so it is good to put sunscreen on even if it is overcast.

    Photo Equipment: Bring lots and lots of film (or room on your memory cards) and extra batteries for your camera! There are loads of photos ops everywhere you go, whether you are exploring the mountain or browsing through the town.

    Be prepared for great changes in the weather.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: The weather can & does change very quickly in the mountains with temperatures plummeting. It was 5 degrees on Whistlers but quickly changed when the clouds actually moved up towards us. Rain & hail stopped us on the trail so we went for a coffee in the restaurant & waited for the rain & clouds to depart.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Strong shoes - a hiking stick - layered clothing & rainwear preferrable with a hood - you would look kinda silly with a brolly
