Jasper area

Planning on hiking in Jasper during the next week. Wondering how the visibility is in the area with all the fires?

To be clear, there are no fires anywhere near Jasper at this time.

It's been horrible for the last few days - absolutely no visibility. It got better later in the day today. Impossible to say what the next few days will bring. The fires in BC and elsewhere are not out and where the smoke goes depends on winds and weather.

Thanks. Will keep watching for the next few days before making a decision. We actually had haze in NY yesterday due to the fires out west.

It's not too bad today... still quite hazy though. You can check conditions at the Skytram webcam: www.jasperskytram.com/visit/webcam-weather (Two days ago, you could see absolutely nothing from the webcam... just white.)
