Star Sessions start September 9th, 2017
Join Us Every Friday & Saturday in September & October!
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, where 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.
$116 + GST per person Includes return Skytram Flight, 2 Course Meal & Star Gazing Experience
Depart Skytram lower station at 7pm**
$84.95+ GST per person Includes Skytram Flight and Star Gazing Experience
Depart SkyTram lower station at 8pm**
Return flights run between 9.30pm - 10.30pm. We recommend dressing warmly. Tickets available for purchase online only.
*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 1000 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.
**Please arrive at least 20 min prior to your scheduled flight time.
Please note that due to the unique nature of Star Sessions; a minimum number of people are required for this event to run. Should the event not meet the minimum requirements 24-48 hours prior, we may need to cancel.
If this occurs, you will be contacted no later than 24 hours prior to the event with options for alternate stargazing events on the Saturday evening, or a refund. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.
