Experience an Unforgettable Family Adventure in the Real Rockies

Adventure is Close to Home in Canada's Base of Adventure

Jasper, Alberta (February 1, 2016) -

Nothing brings a family together like adventure, and Jasper National Park welcomes families to venture beyond the average vacation this upcoming Family Day weekend. From novice to extreme and everything in between, there are plenty of thrilling activities and discoveries to be had for even the smallest explorers.

While a struggling Canadian dollar might make travelling south less appealing, that doesn't mean families have to sacrifice the opportunity to get away together. This Family Day weekend why not stay a little closer to home and embrace the winter season? Families will be warmly rewarded with many specials and deals in Jasper, Canada's base of adventure.

Walks n' Talks Jasper will be offering an afternoon family snowshoe adventure that includes all the necessary equipment, a guide, and transportation.

Jasper Park Riding Stables will have half-off pricing for children ages six to 16 on Family Day. Matched teams of horses, tuned bells, sleighs with comfortable seats and warm throw blankets make for a classic winter experience along the shores of Pyramid Lake!

SunDog Tours welcomes you to join them on an Ice Walk in the epic Maligne Canyon at 20% off, OR combine two of Jasper’s most memorable tours, dog-sledding and the Maligne Canyon ice walk, and save 10%.

For the first time ever, Marmot Basin will be offering discounted lift passes for Family Day. Kids 17 and under will save 50% on two and three day lift tickets all Family Day weekend!

Parks Canada Interpretive staff will also be on hand at Marmot Meadows with free family-friendly programs like fat bike demos, campfire lessons, and other outdoor winter activities. A crackling fire and hot drinks will be available to keep you toasty!

And if you're looking for that family-friendly place to call it a day, the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre will be offering a “Hot Canadian Breakfast” with all bookings made under their “best available rates”, and the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge will have a weekend full of family programming and activities, as well as movies and parties available through their family getaway deals.
