To help our team get into the holiday spirit, we bundled up in winter’s best, hopped on a plane and set off in pursuit of an entirely new perspective. And at an elevation of 7472 feet, the summit of Whistler’s Mountain in Jasper National Park… we think we found it.


We got to see the disappearing act of this geological anomaly for ourselves; sometimes a lake, sometimes not (thanks to cracks in the bedrock that dry the body out come winter), but a pretty magical backdrop for our holiday collection either way.

Consider this Jasper’s hotspot—the Athabasca Glacier is the most-visited glacier in North America and part of the largest icefield in the Canadian Rockies. (Our cozy knit accessories came in extra handy here.)

Once known as the Mountain of the Great Crossing for standing above the Athabasca Pass, Mount Edith Cavell is a winding space of sights, sounds, and incredible hiking.
