Overnight Itinerary

Just like a Daytrip but instead of heading home, we will drop you off at one of our accommodation providers.* You’ll spend a relaxing night in Jasper’s majestic mountain setting. Shuttle up to the mountain (not included) the next morning to ski another full day, then ride home after your last day. Read the full itinerary below for more details.  

Most Common Questions

How far in advance should I book?

Our buses do sell out frequently (especially Saturdays) so you should book as soon as possible. Generally, for daytrips if you book 3-4 days in advance you should get a spot, and for overnights you want to book a week or more in advance to ensure availability. 

Why can’t I select the date I want?

There is either no bus running that day or it has likely sold out. Please note, it’s possible for a depart and return bus on the same day to have different availabilities due to overnight passengers. Contact us to be put on a waitlist as people do cancel!

How old do you need to be to ride?

MagicBus accepts riders of all ages and is a family friendly bus hosted by Tour Directors. Riders that are 13 years and older can ride without a parent or guardian onboard. A waiver will need to be signed for all minors. Overnight stays require at least one adult (18 years or older) in the room. 

Where do I leave my vehicle during my trip?

Free parking is available right where the bus departs from (the back side of the Edmonton Inn). Please make sure your vehicle is locked up with no valuables inside. MagicBus Tours is not responsible for stolen/damaged items.
