I had my first experience skiing here with my school group last Easter and I have to say, I can't think of anywhere better. There was a good variety of runs as I progressed from beginner to just okay at skiing. The views were spectacular from the top and we all had a fantastic time. The instructors were amazing and...

Instead of driving we opted to catch the "free shuttle" up to the ski field . These left quite regularly and were on time . The ski field itself was excellent !! Great runs , uncrowded chairs , friendly staff , well marked & a variety of trails . The café for lunch was basic but well priced & nice... More

Lots of options and reasonable pricing. We ate at the cafeteria at the lower chalet and did not try the lounge or upper chalets. Very busy during lunch hours but we were still able to get a table. Typically you are not there for the food so it definitely met our expectations.

I have skied all around the world and I truly LOVE coming back to ol' Marmot. There is something for everyone here. There are so may little corners to just lose yourself in. Going back at Christmas time was like coming home. It was still a little early in the season and Knob Chair wasn't running yet, but that was... More

We have been skiing here for a week at Spring Break for several years, and I can give it a good overall rating as a family destination ski area for many reasons. It has good facilities, friendly atmosphere, lots of variety for skiing at various levels and it is priced right. Intermediate skiers will find the terrain excellent and extensive.... More

Awesome scenery and nice gentle slopes for learning. Staff were very helpful & enthusiastic & wanted us to improve so went the extra mile! Enjoyed so much that we went up again the next day. Skiing is a costly hobby but prices are comparable to anywhere else in the world. Good ski packages for learners/intermediate with lessons so very happy!... More

This was my first time skiing at Marmot Basin. I was a little concerned that it was late in April and the temp in Jasper was +11C and it had rained most of the night before. It turned out to be an excellent ski experience. The rain in Jasper was almost 4 inches of new snow on the upper part... More

Just off another great day and I continue to love this hill. Having skied over 40 years in 3 countries and 7 mountain ranges I think I can say this hill has the best grooming I have ever experienced, and at my age grooming is everything. Also with the highest base elevation in Canada Marmot is great in the spring.... More

It was our first time skiing outside on a real slope and it was amazing! We bought a ski pass and booked a level two lesson which cost, roughly, £200 including ski hire. The lesson didn't go so well for me as the slope was much different to the indoor slope we had used previously. The camber and icy patches... More
