Into the Great Outdoors for Family Day

Set up camp in The Great Outdoors of Jasper Park Lodge! Retreat to the mountains with the family and enjoy a weekend packed with true Canadian wilderness experiences and activities!

Bring your best campfire stories with you as you gather around to roast marshmallows, enjoy ooey-gooey s’mores and sip on rich hot chocolate. Find your zen and balance within the hustle and bustle of the weekend during a family yoga class. Set out on adventures and connect with nature on guided walks as you learn about the traditional lands we share. End the day in a cozy cabin, cuddled up close, with buttery popcorn in hand for a feature family movie night.

These rocky mountain inspired events are just the beginning of what to expect this Family Day weekend at the Lodge. Discover all of the immersive activities that your family will enjoy during your stay with us!

An Outdoor Playground

Welcome to Jasper National Park, one of the largest, natural outdoor playgrounds around! In winter, lakes become skating rinks, trails become powdered paths to new worlds and mountains become roads to exhilarating downhill adventures. There is no better way to bond as a family than while exploring the great outdoors together and we have everything you’ll need for the adventure!

Winter Activities for All

Whether you’re a pro, a novice or just finding your feet, Jasper Park Lodge has classic winter activities for the ‘bigs’ and the ‘littles’ of the family.


Go deep into the many woodland trails around the property. Keep an eye out for any wildlife that you may spot on your journey!


Grab the family a pair of skates and head out for some laps around the most breathtaking rink in the Rockies. Grab some sticks, split into teams and face your family in a game of hockey on one of our mini netted rinks or skate side by side around the loop.
Skate right up to La Cabane on Ice for a steamy cup of freshly brewed hot cocoa sprinkled with fluffy marshmallows and cheers to family fun.
