Our Honeymoon Contest winner Tara Fillion recently wrote to us about how excited she is to have won the contest. Each contestant entered a photo of themselves and their spouse in the Canadian Mountain Parks, and Tara’s photo was selected in a random draw. The prize is a “second honeymoon.” Tara has even more reasons to be excited now that the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has unveiled the full gift package that they are providing. With an estimated retail value of $1,300, it includes:
- 2 nights’ accommodation in the newly renovated Lakefront Suites (the premier accommodations at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge).
- daily breakfast for two at the newly opened ORSO Trattoria! This restaurant provides an authentic taste of Northern Italy (and significantly better views featuring Jasper National Park).
Tara also received great news from VIA Rail. Since Tara lives in Winnipeg, VIA Rail has generously offered to adjust the prize so that Tara and her husband will be able to ride The Canadian from Winnipeg to Jasper (return) rather than from Jasper to Vancouver. She and her husband will ride in a Sleeper Plus Cabin for Two, enjoy all meals in the Dining Car, and also have access to all the lounge areas and glass dome viewing carriages.
Tara plans to put her prize to a special use. She wrote,
Oh I am SO EXCITED! This is an amazing trip and I cannot wait to experience Jasper!!
If everything pans out, I am hoping to take this trip end March/early April to encompass my husband’s 40th birthday!
Wouldn’t that be memorable!
