When you visit the Canadian Rockies in Jasper, you're in for a treat at the Marmot Basin ski resort
Marmot Basin is in Jasper National Park, in Alberta. The closest international airports are Calgary and Edmonton, both a few hours' scenic drive away. The ski resort is around a 25-minute shuttle bus ride from the friendly town of Jasper. It offers the best of both worlds, with stunning mountain seclusion and plenty of amenities.
Make time to see Jasper National Park! Dog sledding and sleigh rides are a great way to see the sights on your day off from skiing.
The views from the Eagle Ridge and Knob chairs are particularly awe-inspiring, so make sure you take in the scenery on your Jasper ski holiday.
Choose from the Caribou Chalet at the base or The Paradise & Eagle Chalets mid-mountain.
The Kokanee Glacier Deck at the mountain base is a beautiful spot & try the Jasper Brewing Company.
Highway Sixteen and Show Off are regular favourites starting at the top of the Canadian Rockies Express Quad. First thing in the morning, there are only a handful of skiers here so you can let rip on the groomed corduroy. The Peak and Charlie's Bowl come a close second, and you can easily ski three to four kilometres from here.
