Mom's Big Day in the Real Rockies

Whether your mom is an avid explorer who loves a good adventure, or more of the laid back type who enjoys a relaxing day of taking in the mountain scenery, Jasper National Park is the place to be with mom this Mother’s Day weekend.

Before you begin your epic Mother’s Day, you’ll need to fuel up – and what better way to do that then by heading to one of Jasper’s tasty brunch spots.

Head just north of town to Pyramid Lake Resort where you can take in the views of Pyramid Lake and the awe-inspiring Pyramid Mountain in the background. Indulge in a brunch buffet that includes breakfast and lunch items such as soups, salads, seafood, and desserts from 10 am – 2 pm.

The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge will also be hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch from 10 am – 1 pm and Children 5 and under eat free. To make a reservation, call 780-852-3301.

Once full of energy, it’s time to make the most of your time with mom in the Canadian Rockies!

The incredible spring weather has allowed for activities such as rafting to begin operating earlier this season. For those of you looking to hit the water, Jasper Rafting Adventures will be offering complimentary passes to the Miette Hot Springs when you bring mom rafting on Mother’s Day.

With trained and committed guides to accompany you and your family as you raft down the Athabasca River, your experience white water rafting will surely be memorable! Rafting adventures can range from a more novice float trip, to something a little more extreme for the Mom with a wild side.

Be sure to pack a camera to capture both the giant smile on her face, and, in case you spot wildlife along the riverbank!

Come days end, if the spa is calling mom’s name, be sure to check out the services available at Mountain Wellness Day Spa at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre!

Make memories with mom this weekend with an escape to Jasper. Sip wine on a patio, explore the scenic hiking trails, indulge at the spa, or rent a canoe and go for a paddle, - whatever she decides on, there’s an adventure for every mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
