Located in the breathtaking landscape of Jasper National Park – an 11,000 square kilometer protected area that is an integral part of the UNESCO Canadian Rockies World Heritage Site. Ski Marmot Basin is a truly unique skiing destination that is a feast for the eyes and rejuvenation for your soul.
Ski Marmot Basin’s facilities and services include seven (7) lifts, one of which is the longest high-speed quad chair in the Canadian Rockies, three (3) mountain day lodges, a full-service rental/repair shop, Snow Sports School, several dining areas, a nursery and a retail shop.
Venture beyond crowded resorts to the authentic mountain town of Jasper. Retaining its timeless appeal — it is a friendly community that originated as a railway town which happened to be situated in the middle of some of the most gorgeous protected wilderness anywhere. Jasper is the perfect destination for your winter adventures, where abundant wildlife such as elk, deer, sheep, wolves and lynx may cross paths in front of you in their natural, winter environment any day.
For an unforgettable ski experience in a remarkably beautiful Rocky Mountain setting, Ski Marmot Basin and Jasper have no equal.Lift Infrastructure:
Spread out amongst 5 mountain faces, Marmot Basin has 7 lifts –three high speed quad chairs, one quad chair, one triple chair, one double chair and one magic carpet.
From the base of Marmot Basin, skiers and snowboarders have access to three chairlifts and the Magic Carpet learning area. The Canadian Rockies Express Quad Chair is the longest detachable quad chairlift in the Canadian Rockies, taking skiers and snowboarders of all abilities 2.3 kilometers to the top of both groomed and off-piste terrain.
The Paradise Quad Chair is especially convenient for rippers that want nothing more than a short jaunt to the mountain's newest and most challenging terrain, Tres Hombres.
Marmot Basin's Knob Chair takes keeners nearly to the tip of Marmot Peak which accesses wide open terrain from intermediate to expert level runs. Feel the rush of the fresh mountain air and glide through dry Rocky Mountain powder above the tree line.Weather Conditions:
Ski Marmot Basin is the northernmost of the large Canadian Rocky Mountain ski areas and enjoys abundant dry, natural snow that is a dream to ski and snowboard in. Average winter temperatures range from -10 degrees Celsius to minus 2 degrees Celsius.
With the highest base elevation of any major ski area in Canada and a latitude of 53° N, our snow falls early, and continues well into May. Combined with a state-of-the-art snowmaking system, skiers and snowboarders enjoy superb snow from opening day in mid- November through to early May –that’s almost 6 months of consistent and reliable snowpack!Video:
