Be the Early Bird in Mount Robson and Avoid a Crowd

May 16th, 2013 by Katie Pate

If you come during this time of year, you will find snow still on the ground in many places, but with green blades of grass poking through and new buds on all the branches. It is a magical time of rebirth in the mountains! Often still very empty with few visitors before the warmth of summer days.

Baby animals are being born, bears are coming out of hibernation and many animals in the park are ready to forage for food after the long, hard winter. Bears wake up hungry after winter in the high country of the Canadian Rockies. Spring mushrooms and dandelions are some of the first plants to grow, and bears find these delicious! Beside the highways and roads in Mount Robson Park are fields of yellow dandelions, which a foraging bear will quickly devour as he moves through the area and munches the tops off the flowers. It’s hard to imagine that a cow would do a better or faster job than the hungry bear!

Mt Robson Lodging for a Springtime Adventure

Whatever time of year you decide to visit Mt Robson Park – whether it is deep in the winter for peaceful solace in the cold, white snow, or an adventure among the greening hills and mountains of spring, we offer both cabin and bed and breakfast lodging for your trip to the park.

October 11th, 2012 by Katie Pate

Did you know that Jasper National Park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains Parks World Heritage Site? Four Canadian National parks and three British Columbia Provincial Parks reside within the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) site. The parks include mountains, glaciers and hot springs, as well as the headwaters of several major North American river systems including the North Saskatchewan, Athabasca, Columbia and Fraser rivers.The region is

recognized for its natural beauty and wide array of flora and fauna.

Jasper National Park

This park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 because of the breathtaking mountain landscapes – mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons, and limestone caves as well as fossils found here make it one of the world’s natural treasures. Jasper National Park is a scenic 45 minute drive away from Mountain River Lodge, a Mt. Robson Inn. Along the way, watch for wildlife such as moose, bears and a large herd of wapiti (elk) that have inhabited the valley floor of Jasper National park for over 10,000 years.

Mt. Robson Provincial Park

Mt. Robson Park was inducted into the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. Mt. Robson Provincial Park was recognized for its unspoiled natural landscapes and scenery. Mt. Robson itself holds geological and ecological significance; Mount Robson is the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. It rises 3000 meters from the valley floor to the summit. The surrounding mountain landscapes contain the habitats for rare and endangered species.

Mount Robson Park

Jasper National ParkMount Robson Park is home to the largest mountain in the Canadian Rockies.
Its namesake, Mount Robson, rises majestically to 3954 metres, dwarfing its neighboring peaks. This is one of British Columbia’s oldest and largest parks, established to preserve its scenic mountains, waterfalls, lakes and rivers. It is next to Jasper National Park on the B.C./Alberta border. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1990 to preserve it for all the people of earth, it is home to many species of wildlife. Moose, black bear, grizzly bear, caribou, mule deer and mountain goat all call this area home. Over 170 species of birds have been sighted here, with the Rufous Hummingbird one of our most entertaining summer residents. As the headwaters for the Fraser River, a historic trade route, the easy access into the beautiful mountain terrain has long made this park an excellent destination for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.
