We are thinking about visiting Jasper October 07. Will we be to late for elk bugeling? How about bears, will they be in hibernation by the first week of October? Will all the restaurants be open? And finally, will it be busy the weekend of your Thanksgiving? Thanks so much. We visited Jasper a few days in September this year and we want to go back next year for a week. The rates are low the first week of October and I want to make sure restaurants, etc. will be open.
