Blast off with astronomy experts from The Jasper Planetarium for an exclusive dining and stargazing experience atop the Jasper Skytram. Your SkyTram flight will take you nearly 1 km closer to the stars above, to the Skytram Upper Station. Next, enjoy a 3-course dinner with the best view in Jasper from high on a mountaintop! Then, you’ll have the chance to look through the most powerful telescopes in the Canadian Rockies, under the darkest skies in the Rockies. Join a guided tour of the Solar System, learning about planets, galaxies, and constellations, and if you’re lucky, you might even see a meteor or the Northern Lights! You’ll also have a chance to attend a special talk on Canada’s dark skies or a quick workshop about how to photograph objects in the night sky with your DSLR camera.
*Weather-permitting. In the event the skies are clouded-over, an extended indoor portion will take place at the Upper Skytram Station and we’ll have the chance to explore the Athabasca River Valley (including the town of Jasper) through our telescopes on the mountain. Being 1,000 metres higher than Jasper, the Skytram upper station is usually 10° cooler than in town. So bring warm layers to enjoy the outdoor star gazing portions of the evening.
NOTE** RETURN FLIGHTS RUN AT BOTH 9:30 and 10:30 pm.
