    During my lat trip trip to Jasper, I was here in the winter and took the gorgeous hike through Maligne Canyon. The name comes from the French word for malignant or wicked. It is theorized that an early French voyageur created this name in reference to the current of the river near its confluence with the Athabasca. Maybe it was a little icy that way, but for me it was all wicked fun and a pretty easy hike (with proper layering of course).
