This year, the hotel is celebrating 100 years of luxury hospitality on the shores of Lac Beauvert. To honour this anniversary, the historic lodge has launched a series of centennial events and activities planned throughout the year, including outdoor summer concerts (featuring The Sheepdogs and Platinum Blonde), lakeside dining events, historic tours and traditional high-tea tastings.
I also learned that the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has converted one of the restaurants into a new northern Italian restaurant ORSO Trattoria.
Sous Chef Andrew Whiteside of the Fairmont JPL was on hand serving up a selection of their handmade pasta. While I couldn’t partake in the samples of fresh ravioli, he did walk me through the menu and assured me there were a lot of gluten free options.
The help kick off the celebration – the hotel is asking social media users to share their favourite Fairmon JPL memories. 100 years ago, a night in the tents that were first erected on the banks of Lac Beauvert – creating tent city – cost 25 cents. For a lucky few – it will again.
To enter The contest – just submit or share your favourite memory of the JPL using #JPL100 for a chance to win a night at the luxury hotel for just 25 cents per night. In honour of the contest – I am sharing some of my favourite memories.
The Spaniard joined me for Christmas in November 2014 – it was the first time in his life he got to sit on Santa’s lap.
The decorated trees, the life-size gingerbread house, the lobby at Fairmont JPL just oozes Christmas spirit.
Christmas in November at the Fairmont JPL is hands down one of my fave #JPL100 memories
Oh… and so was meeting 80’s Brat Pack member Molly Ringwald during the PJ Party at the Fairmont JPL.
In 2010 I attended my friend Kim and Wes’s wedding at the Fairmont JPL.
What a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony.
And the chance to have some bubbles on the grass with a beautiful mountain backdrop immediately after the wedding ceremony was amazing!
