Jasper National Park

We would like to invite you to join us at the second annual Ascend Split-board Festival. Again, we are operating out of the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Jasper National Park. The event will run from the evening of Friday March 13th, to Sunday March 15th, 2015. All back-country experiences will happen within national park boundries and all off-snow activities will take place in the Town of Jasper.

Our goal is to celebrate local, regional, and worldwide backcountry split-boarding and the people who share the passion. Our community is geared toward back-country safety, education and increased awareness of the sport. Any and all split-boarders are welcome to participate. Whether you are a seasoned mountain goat or fresh to the backcountry, we provide you with a safe, fun + educational experience set in our beautiful backyard… Jasper National Park.

We would like to thank The Astoria Hotel for being our accommodation partner. This landmark hotel features Jasper National Park lodging with character and charm, and can be found in the center of the Town of Jasper. Please call toll free: 1-800-661-7343 to book your room. Our event rate will be $85.00 for standard rooms per night. These rooms include either two twin beds (ideal for 2 people) or King and Queen beds (ideal for 1 or a couple). For our larger ‘Mountain View’ rooms the rate will be $95.00. These rooms are slightly larger and face the South mountain ranges and include either two double beds or Kings or Queens. Book your room right away! There is enough room for everyone, but the great deal only lasts untilFebruary 16th, 2015.

An option for all registrants this year is a packed lunched. For packed lunches The Astoria will provide 2 options to choose from:

A) Ham & cheese croissant, orange and a protein bar.

B) Smoked turkey club sandwich, orange and protein bar.

Packed lunches are $9.95 per lunch per day. This cost is not included in your registration fee. Upon booking your accommodation, please indicate whether or not you are interested in the lunch option.

As we finalize sponsorship and participation we will continue to update the details of the event. A tentative itinerary will be up before the end of February 2015. Stay tuned for another fantastic adventure!
