First, the women I was with were great people to be around! Here is a picture of some of them and one of the bears we had a lot of fun with. I am going to scan our fancy photo with Santa, but I don't have it yet.
This is a weekend of luxury and it isn't something that I can afford to do all the time, but if you have a special occasion, or want to have a fun weekend with some of your friends and want to enjoy the food and environment of the Jasper Park Lodge, I recommend. You feel special all the time and if anything, you have to tell yourself to restrain yourself. The Lodge does Christmas in November every year and there are three packages of varying length and it is so worth it!
