At the heart of the Jasper National Park, overlooking the scenic town of Jasper, Marmot Basin is the hidden secret of the Canadian Rockies. Skiers can experience a variety of terrain such as glades, bowls, tree runs and rhythmic groomers; make the effort to get there and you will see why Jasper enjoys many return visitors.

The town of Jasper is surrounded by lakes, mountains and verdant forest and high above the town lies Marmot Basin ski area, with its relaxed and friendly atmosphere and magnificent views across the Rockies. 20 minutes from town by car or bus, Marmot Basin has something for everyone – wide-open nursery slopes for beginners, plenty of options for novices looking to improve and lots of scope for intermediates looking to show-off their skills. Advanced skiers will enjoy the steeps and glades off Eagle Ridge, with those looking to find new lines able to hike the Knob or Cornice.

Marmot’s newest terrain, Tres Hombres, is a large, north-facing and treeless slope, 45 acres in size within which provides incredible advanced and expert off-piste skiing and snowboarding terrain. Tres Hombres – named after the ZZ Top album of the same name from the 70s – is a dream for expert skiers; steep, long and wide open.

Many choose a ski holiday to Jasper as a twin-centre destination with Banff or Lake Louise.

Frontier’s Personal Experience

“Jasper is perfect in the winter time; majestic scenery, uncrowded slopes yet a vibrant town with some great après spots; make sure you have a post-ski drink at the De’d Dog Bar & Grill in downtown Jasper.”
