Jasper for New Year's

Jasper, Alberta

sunny -3 °C

Nathan and I have a new tradition for New Year's. Rather than spending a lot of money going out on New Year's Eve, we book the cheapest hotel we can find in the mountains. Last year we stayed in Canmore, and this year we ventured to Jasper.


It's really great to take long walks during the day, sit in the hot tub, take in the scenery, watch hours of TLC, and eat snacks.


We try not to eat out a lot, so we cook in the room. We usually bring lots of snacks like cheese, crackers, olives, meats, etc. Then, we brought an electric frying pan. We had amazing kofta chicken.


As a warning though, hotels rooms aren't made to have lots of these types of electronics plugged in. When we had the kettle, the frying pan, and our rice cooker going we popped the breaker. From then on, we were more careful. It's definitely against hotel rules to have these appliances.

We celebrated at midnight in our hotel room with champagne.

It was the perfect break after moving because we were forced to just relax.
