Jasper ski shuttle

Does anyone know if the cost of the Jasper ski shuttle is included within the lift pass or is there an additional cost? If there is an additional cost how much is a return ticket to the mountain?

thanks in advance.

Welcome to the TripAdvisor forums!

Most skiers are from the local area and driving their own cars, so I would be very surprised if the lift ticket included the shuttle to and from Marmot Basin from Jasper.

The Marmot Basin shuttle page says that a daily round-trip ticket is $7:

Thanks for that. We are spending a week in Jasper followed by a week in Banff. Our lift pass in Banff covers the ski shuttle and wondered if it was the same in Jasper. We fly out on Sat and want to have everything planned to get to the hill on Sunday! Just cant wait to get out there!

Thanks again.

It's reasonable to assume that Jasper would be similar to Banff, but the "Ski Big 3" pass in Banff is marketed primarily to international travelers; most locals have never even heard of it. The lift tickets that are sold directly by each Banff ski area don't include the shuttle. Both Sunshine and Louise sell a special ski pass, that is only available to local residents, which provides similar (but different) deals on multi-day skiing.

The weekend forecast for Banff looks good at the moment; hope you get nice weather and great snow!

Ah - thanks again for that. We have been to Banff a couple of times before and skied the three areas close by which we really enjoyed. We have never been to Jasper before so really looking forward to exploring a new ski area. Thanks also for the link to the weather report, we will be keeping or eyes on that for the next few days - hoping for a mix of snow and sun but I suspect there will be enough snow to keep us more than happy at the moment!!

Hi, I notice your location is "London". If that's London UK and you've booked your lift pass for Jasper through one of the main tour operators (Crystal, Inghams or Canadian Affair) then your shuttle cost is included in your lift pass. The hotel will have bus tickets for you to collect each morning. They're a different colour than the ones purchased individually.

We fly out on the 12th for the sixth time!

Sorry for the "sticker shock". ;-( ... but it is a five hour drive from Calgary to Jasper (and probably longer by bus). Just curious... how much is it?
