Hi Mooseboy, We will be travelling there late May early June. I hope this helps. Have found the Yellowhead Highway is a good route, staying maybe at Kamloops, overnight and then onto Jasper. Hope this helps and look forward to your reply..RSA

There are only three roads into Jasper, and one of them goes east, so that leaves you only two other options. One is to go south on highway 93, the Icefield Parkway, to Lake Louise - it intersects with the TransCanada highway #1. This would be more of a roundabout route, not as direct as the last option. The third option is highway 16, the Yellowhead highway, to BC highway 5... Try www.mapquest.com to see for yourself. Mapquest says it's a total estimated time of 9 hours and 13 minutes, a distance of 460.34 miles. I'd do it over at least two days.
