Top 10 Quick Winter Getaways

Jasper National Park, Canada

Situated in the Alberta Rockies, Jasper National Park is one of Canada's most spectacular treasures with 4,200 square miles of wilderness to explore. For an ideal winter getaway, head straight to Marmot Basin for 3,000 vertical feet of downhill trails, or enjoy mile after undisturbed mile available for Nordic skiing. Even if you don't ski, there's plenty of winter fun to be had, whether it be on skis, snowshoes, dog sled, or snowmobile. Add to that the fact that winter is Jasper's low season and you've got a wilderness adventure at a veritable bargain.

How to Get to Jasper National Park: Take a flight to Edmonton (YEG), the closest international airport and about a 2.5-hour drive from Jasper. Chicago (United; about 4 hours), Denver (United, Air Canada; about 2.5 hours); Las Vegas (West Jet; about 3 hours); Minneapolis (Delta; 3 hours), and San Francisco (United; 3 hours) each have direct flights to  Edmonton.
