We took the Sky Tram on the first ride up in the morning(9.00am)and were treated to a great sight as we had clear sky's and were able to see Mt Robson and the rest of the mountains ranges very clearly. Also walked to the top and as it was the first tramway walked up without many others which made the... More

I have been skiing at Marmot for 45 years. I have skied every major ski area in western Canada and the north west of the U.S. Marmot has great terrain for all, wonderful snow, non-existent lift lines, and the best little town to be based in. I love to stay in the Jasper Park Lodge. It is a wonderful hotel... More

Marmot may not be the biggest ski hill in Western Canada, but the variety and accessibility of terrain and lift carrying capacity means maximum ski time, almost never waiting in lifts and always having great terrain to ski in. The long season is also a bonus. Love it so much I moved here to be a ski bum.

Loved this little ski resort. Anywhere you skied, the powder was good and it wasn't too steep. A couple runs the mountain allowed moguls, but once known where those are we avoided them. Rest of the hill was covered with snow and it was snowing that day, so just more delightful to ski.

We have skied at Marmot several times because we used to live in Edmonton. Was recently in Jasper and did not ski but noticed it was final day at Marmot and had some fond memories and figured I should review it at some point. This was the first place I ever skied in the Rockies and it is a great... More

Tucked away up above the friendly town of Jasper, Marmot Basin offers much and has a charm all of its own. Its not the biggest hill but has a fantastic variety, is rarely busy and can be great fun in all conditions. I have visited over 40 different resorts around the world but keep coming back to jasper from the... More

We spent a week in Jasper which included the bank holiday weekend and were surprised how quiet the town was. The skiing was good and there were a variety of graded runs to suit everyone. Plenty of snow too, I understand that Jasper was one of the lucky resorts that had plenty of snow this year whereas some resorts closed... More

great snow, minimal crowds and the one of the best mountains for snow all season. Late April skiing was one of the best I've had.

My husband and I just decided on Tuesday to leave for Jasper. What a great decision. The Marmot Basin was perfect - perfect snow conditions, no line ups, great service no matter what we asked for, reduced lift tickets and sun, sun, sun +17 every day. We have booked for next year already. We have skied several southern Alta ski... More

The mountains were great with fluffy, soft snow. However closer to the bottom of the mountain it became a bit icy. We quite enjoyed our experience skiing and snowboarding. The staff however could be more friendly. When renting and returning our equipment, we felt as if we were bothering the staff. There are lockers available for $7-8/day with re-entry all... More
