Located in the breathtaking Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Marmot Basin definitely has the ‘wow’ factor. Only 20 minutes from the authentic mountain town of Jasper, Marmot Basin offers 3,000 vertical feet of superb skiing and snowboarding. Here you will find everything from long, winding perfectly groomed novice trails to high alpine bowls and steep chutes filled with dry, Canadian Rocky Mountain powder snow. There is no waiting in lift lines at Marmot Basin as it is one of the least crowded ski areas in North America. Crowd-free, wide open slopes are just one of the reason skiers and boarders return to Marmot Basin year after year, we also love the non-ski activities such as dog sledding and ice walking.
