Your Home for Christmas in Jasper National Park

Leave Everything to Jasper

Leave the holiday stress behind and let Jasper welcome you home for the holidays.

Whatever mountain Christmas adventure you desire, you will find it in Jasper. All you have to do is start exploring. Jasper has everything you need to welcome you home for the holidays. It’s not too late to book your holiday escape.


Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without red cheeks and mittens. These adventures will have your blood pumping and your breath frosting the winter air.

For the adrenaline junkie, work up an appetite hitting the slopes at Marmot Basin or ice climbing with Rockaboo. The Marmot Escape Card is a perfect stocking stuffer for those hard to buy for people! The Escape Card gets you 50% lift tickets all season long, no blackouts, no kidding!

Looking for a more relaxed adventure? Jasper has those too! Venture into the Maligne Canyon with Maligne Adventures or Sundog Tours. Lace up those skates and take a spin on Lake Mildred or Pyramid Lake, and warm your toes and fingers at the lake-side bonfires while sipping on a cup of hot chocolate.

Keep venturing beyond your comfort zone with cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, and dog sledding. Listen to the sleigh bells ring while cozying up to a loved one in an open sleigh.

After an action-packed day outside, these festive events will have you warm and toasty in no time.

Come hit the slopes with Santa, he may even have a bag of goodies with him! Visit Santa in his warm and snug cabin at the Fairmont Park Lodge. Santa’s Cabin will be open December 22 – 25. Share your experience (#JPLSantaCabin) on Twitter and Instagram to enter to win a two-night stay at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.

Have a night out and ring in the New Year in style!

New Years at the Legion will have you toe-tapping and cutting a rug at the Jasper Legion. The whole family is invited to the all-ages party at Champs Lounge in the Sawridge Inn. DJ Mr Wiggles and Coalition will be bringing down the house at the Jasper Brewing Company. Be sure to buy your tickets in advance! Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is pulling out all the stops for their New Year’s Eve Bash, followed by their New Year’s Day Brunch specials.

Not much of a partier? Head out side and look up! Jasper is one of the world’s largest dark sky preserves after all! You will not be disappointed when shouting out the countdown to the stars.
