Discover Ski Marmot Basin

Jasper, AB Canada

Ski Marmot Basin is located 20 minutes south of the authentic, mountain town of Jasper, Alberta. Boasting the highest base elevation of any major ski area in Canada, nature provides an abundance of light, dry snow from November to early May. Since 2003 more than $29 million has been invested in new lifts, snowmaking and gorgeous base area amenities. Marmot Basin is a world-class ski area that has maintained its uncrowded status in the breathtaking, protected wilderness of Jasper National Park, which is an integral part of the UNESCO Canadian Rockies World Heritage Site.

Marmot Basin encompasses 1,720 acres of skiable terrain on five mountain faces that include 91 named runs and 3 terrain parks. You will find everything from long, winding, novice trails to high alpine bowls and steep chutes. Seven lifts, including the longest, high-speed quad in the Canadian Rockies, access 3,000 vertical feet and a top to bottom run of more than 3.5 miles. This season, they opened Tres Hombres, 45 acres of treeless slopes with chutes and powder-filled bowls that provides an uninterrupted fall line of more than 1,200 vertical feet.
