Jasper 2013

Our annual Jasper weekend!!!!!

This is a camping overnight trip. We have done this for few years now and it has always been tons of fun. Clean Dean, you better be there!!! We ride to Jasper via Banff and Hwy 93. It’s a beautiful 4 hour ride there. I will look into a group camp site if they have one. If not, each will be responsible for booking their own site. When we get to Jasper, we set our tents (some may want to stay in a hotel or a hostel) and go for a bite to eat. Bring beer back to the site and have fire. Bring lots of mosquito repellant. Email me for more info if needed.  Thanks, Simona

    I had a fabulous time. One of my most favorable rides each year. Great company, comfortable accommodations, prefect weather and a tasteful breakfast to boot!

    Will be a great ride. I got park pass and if anyone else has one, bring it please. We are not a big group so we may not need to break into two groups. I will lead the group and any riders that want to speed can meet us at the next stop. Fist stop at Canmore and the next one is Saskatchewan crossing. See you there. :-)

      And I have a group pass as well. Doesn't look like I'll need it, but probably bring it just in case.

      I also have a pass

    Simona, some of us are planning to bring our swim suits so we have the option to hit the hot springs if time permits. Just thought I'd throw that out there just in case anyone else is interested as well.

    July 19, 2013

  • Randy

    I'm thinking I may continue on up to the hot springs for a soak depending on our timing.

    "Clean Dean, you better be there!!!"

    Simona - I separated my shoulder playing hockey, and can't manage more than short rides right now. Wish I could go! I hope you have a good turn out and NO MOSQUITOS!!!!!!!!

    July 16, 2013

    • Simona

      Oh no!!!! That's too bad. I was hoping to hang out.

    Will think about it, depends on if I find someone to take the dogs for us.

    Anyone know how far the hostel is from camp?

    • JF

      the Whistlers Hostel is just up the road behind the campground, on the way to the Tramway - about 3km

    If anyone cares to join us in Hinton, Simon P and I are staying at the Super 8 in Hinton for[masked] This is only 45 minutes past Jasper. We will stop in Jasper with the group for a bit then maybe head out to the hot springs and try to get to Hinton by 9 pm. Sunday morning we will hook back up with the group for the ride back.

    July 14, 2013

  • Shelley

    I reserved 12B. :)

    Unfortunately I need to cancel out on this ride due to change in my vacation plans.

    July 5, 2013

  • Simona

    I have reserved 12A – Campsite on line. As of this moment there are lots of spaces available. Please don’t wait till the last minute and reserve yours to stay together. This campsite circle has fire pits. Go on line https://reservation.pc.gc.ca/Jasper/WhistlersCampground?Map and click on the 11-14 sites. Pick yours and reserve. It is a royal pain in the a.. to get it reserved. You need to create profile and such. Any questions, let me know. The total came up to $38.40 and we are allowed 2 tents and up to 6 people. The tricky part will be our bikes. They only allow 1 vehicle????? Last year they allowed of course but with a little bit of convincing and some common sense which is rare these days.

    camp or hotel - either one is ok...

  • Ken A.

    Has anyone thought about renting a cabin that could potentially sleep the whole group? Just a thought, but if we are willing to share a slightly smaller space it might be worth it. Otherwise camping for me.

    April 25, 2013

  • Dean

    I'm in! Camping as usual.

    3 · April 25, 2013

  • Trevor V.

    I'm good with camping.

    Not sure about the logistics yet. Looking forward to it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
