Jasper of the 70’s: extra events

The Extra Events

Along with our own events (see our Itinerary page) we have arranged for extra things to do during the days of your return to Jasper.

While all of Jasper National Park is in full summer swing the following businesses have offered you special pricing and/or special group deals.

Raft the Athabasca

Raft the Atha-B with Jasper Raft Tours for just $10 per person! Call 852-2665 for bookings; ask for Scott Eady (thanks, Scott) or identify yourself as part of Reunion ’06. Book individually or gather some friends together and fill your own raft. Sunday only, please.

Come fly with us

Ride the Jasper Tramway for the half price local’s rate of just $11.50! Tram hours on the long weekend are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm; go early or later in the day to avoid the crush. Or put together your own group, and book at tram time in advance. Call 852-3093 for bookings and details. For the locals rate, just show your Reunion ’06 ID at the box office. Available Saturday, Sunday and Monday. If you see Alex Rayner, say thanks.

Take a hop down to Spirit Island

Take a boat cruise down to Spirit Island on Sunday. Departure is at 1:30 sharp! The goal is to fill a boat just with Reunion ’06 members, so book as soon as you can and help us keep our numbers straight. Pat Crowley has given us a special rate of just $25. Old Maligne Tours staff are welcome to grab the mike and do a little nostalgia spiel. For bookings, email Verne at vbalding@town.jasper.ab.ca. He’ll consolidate the list and pass it along.

Join the Lunch Bunch

Going somewhere for the day, and need a great lunch to pack along with you? Give Glen Leitch at the Patricia Street Deli (852-4814, right beside the TD Bank on Patricia Street) and book as many lunches as you need: Glens’ famous chicken sandwich, chips, fruit, desert, a nappie, and a beverage for $13.95.

Raft the Sunwapta, the Fraser or the Athabasca

Jasper Rafting has offered us special locals rates for his Sunwapta, Fraser and Athabasca river runs

  • Athabasca River Mile 5 Run
    • Adult Retail $49.00
    • Locals Rate $37.00
  • Fraser / Sunwapta runs
    • Adult Retail $72.00
    • Locals Rate $57.00
  • To register:
    – follow your nose to the booking form
    – choose your trip and your departure time
    – enter ‘Reunion 06’ (that’s Reunion 06, no apostrophe) in the blank for “Registered Travel Partner”. When you do, the website will automatically adjust your price. Cool, eh?

Search for the Angel Glacier on Sunday

Paula Beauchamp, through her "Walks and Talks Jasper" company, is offering her “Path of the Glacier Walk”. This guided walk to the foot of Angel Glacier on Mount Edith Cavell is both easy and, to those who have not seen Edith Cavell in a while, rather surprising; the Angel is shrinking. Paula has given us the special rate of $15.00/head which includes transportation. Plan on the trip taking 3 1/2 hours, return.
You will meet Paula and the other participants at Edge Control’s new location on Connaught (beside the Brew Pub, a cross from the steam locomotive and the new parking lot) at 10 AM Sunday.
Contact Paula directly at walktalk@incentre.net
