Love is in the Mountain Air

This Valentine’s Day Steal Deals, Not Hearts in Jasper National Park 

Jasper, Alberta (February 8, 2016) -

You love mountains - Check. You love adventure - Check. You love your Valentine - Check.

And you love a deal – Check!

If you haven’t made Valentine’s Day plans with your loved one yet, don’t panic! Escape to Jasper, Canada’s base of adventure, for the weekend and show your favourite explorer what romance in the Rockies is all about.

How does a glass of champagne and chocolate, a roof-top hot tub, or couples stargazing sound to you?

Whistler’s Inn is offering a two-night package that includes a welcome wine and fruit basket, a couples massage complete with champagne and orange juice, and access to their romantic rooftop hot tubs!

After gazing into your lover’s eyes all day, why not spend the night gazing up at the stars together? As a designated Dark Sky Preserve, Jasper is one of the world’s best places to view the night sky. Mount Robson Inn is offering a ‘Romancing the Stars’ package that includes a map of the best stargazing spots in town, a bottle of wine, and late check-out so you can stay out late!

Few things feel as good as being in love, but some quality time at the spa comes pretty close. Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is offering a weekend spa getaway that includes an hour long treatment of your choice and breakfast for two at Orso Trattoria.

We’ve also compiled a list of special ways to spend the day with your other half making memories that will last:

A Smitten Snowshoe

As the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, we have endless trails for you to explore while on your personal adventure. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, there’s a trail for all levels. Be sure to take in the awe-inspiring scenery around you, including that beauty next to you! Share some laughs with your partner as you try out snowshoeing for the first time, or if you’re more advanced, show off your competitive sides as you race each other through the snow. The loser has to buy chocolate and wine!

A list of trails to explore can be found here, however many places around town offer snowshoe hikes with rentals if you prefer to venture out with a guide. Visit our website here for more information.

Infatuated Ice-Skating

True Canadian romance involves a skate around the lake while holding hot chocolate in one hand, and your lover’s hand in the other. With the mountains as your backdrop, this is your chance to get that too-cute picture. Rentals are available at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and Pyramid Lake Resort.

Sweetheart Skiing

With a recent dump of snow sure to put a smile on anyone’s face, Marmot Basin welcomes you to a long-weekend of fresh powder skiing. Hop on the chair with your sweetheart and maybe sneak in a kiss or two! After a day of carving epic trails down the mountain, why not stop in the chalet for a warm beverage and treat while taking in the view together?
