“Little gem in Alberta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Marmot Basin is not a large as some of the other ski resorts in Alberta, but the short queue and the wide variety of terrain make this a great mountain experience!

good variety of runs for those of us who don't like double diamond blacks but need more challenge than green runs

“Been skiing here for 50 years and love it every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Marmot has grown over the years from a tiny local ski hill to a large ski resort with many high speed lifts. And it still keeps its unique charm. There is a good variety of runs with areas to please absolutely everyone. The only complaint now is that we get worn out skiing since there are no lift lines, so no time to rest. The two chalets provide tasty comfort food and a variety of beverages.

“Awesome spring skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Skied Marmot on Tuesday April 2; beautiful sunny day and awesome conditions for this time of year. There were no line ups for the lifts and every run was pure pleasure. I am disappointed we did not spend more time as we left here to head to Kimberly Mountain Resort where the snow had taken a terrible beating.

“Great Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Marmot is not just great for skiing, but the view is absolutely breathtaking.
The food is very, very good with is not necessarily standard at some ski area's.
When in Jasper do not miss Marmot Basin, it's only minutes from the town of Jasper
