“Don’t like the weather in the Jasper Rockies? Wait 5 minutes and some more will be along.” Such is the refrain of many a seasoned local.
Cosmic discovery in any weather
While mountain weather is hard to predict, don’t let that stop you from enjoying an evening in our 11,000 sq km dark sky preserve.
Our climate-controlled (indoor) dome theatre lets you (virtually) explore all the skies of Jasper have to offer AND our telescope experience outside features many elements not affected by the weather.

Most accurate we find – Anytime there’s a 20% chance of precipitation or lower for the hour you want to see the sky, it’s likely to be mostly clear. 30%, probably OK with some cloud (or not.) More than that and you’ll have to just wait & see.
