3. Pamper Yourself With a Spring Thaw at the Spa

Experiencing spring in Jasper means witnessing nature awakening from a long winter slumber – as bears return to the valley and white-tailed deer stroll comfortably amongst you and the cabins. It’s glacier-fed lakes and waterfalls waiting to be discovered as they are slowly enriched with minerals and begin reflecting that familiar emerald hue.

These reflections of nature are what underscore every treatment we offer at The Spa. So take some time to relax, rejuvenate and refresh, before the hustle and bustle of summer begins. And if you’re looking for a way to bring that sense of calm home with you, we have a selection of In-Room Spa Kits that will match every mood.

4. Stargaze the Spring Skies

In the astronomy world, spring is known as an opportune time to catch meteor showers, crisp views of the Big Dipper and, if you’re lucky, the International Space Station gliding across the sky. While the Jasper Planetarium offers some helpful tips for catching these sights at home, for a truly immersive experience you’ll want to join one of their Telescope Experience Tours right here at Jasper Park Lodge.

Spend your evening on an interactive tour of the largest, most powerful telescope in the Rockies and watch the latest 4K ‘instant-replays’ of live views seen through telescopes in Jasper, including views of the Whirlpool Galaxy ‘eating’ a smaller galaxy. You’ll also have a chance to learn about photographing the Northern Lights and Milky Way with your DSLR camera and enjoy an interactive science area where you can make an aurora and get up close with meteorites, a moon and a mars rock.

Breathtaking views, snowcapped peaks and a world-class ski destination that feels like you have it all to yourself. Celebrate the arrival of warmer temperatures by squeezing in those last few turns beneath a bluebird sky at Marmot Basin. Then wear that goggle tan like a badge of honour and join us for après in the Emerald Lounge.

Marmot Basin is beckoning with four mountain faces, incredible glades, stunning views and a 1,675 acres of skiable terrain. And with 91 named ski trails ranging from long, gentle novice runs, to steep, high alpine bowls and chutes, skiers and snowboarders of all abilities will find what they are looking for. Marmot Basin also boasts the longest high-speed quad chair in the Canadian Rockies, meaning less time waiting in lines and more time spent on the slopes. For advanced skiers and snowboarders, the five runs at Tres Hombres with up to 45 degree slopes are sure to challenge you!
