Jasper, along Highway 93 south to Banff, and on Highway 40 north of the Yellowhead near Grande Cache.“We had a developing low-pressure system on Sunday over the central portion of the province,” said Sara Hoffman, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada.“That was associated with a lot of cold air aloft flooding into the province, helping create these quite heavy showers over west-central portions of the province in Yellowhead County, including Jasper and especially the Grande Cache area, and the Hinton area all the way to the B.C. border.”In Jasper National Park, both rain and snow fell Monday.Up at Marmot Basin Ski Resort, the white stuff coated the ground and left a nearly foot-thick layer on patio furniture at the lower chalet.Snow atop mountains is not unexpected at any time of year, but it falling to the valley below during the summer months is another story.Parks Canada said more than 100 mm of rain and 55 cm of snow were recorded in some places Monday.If you haven’t heard from a friend or family member travelling in Jasper, Parks Canada is asking people to reach out to them.“If you’re aware of a backcountry camper who hasn’t checked in or arrived at their destination as anticipated, please call Parks Canada Dispatch at 780-852-6155.
