Skiing in Jasper

Alpine, Nordic, Backcountry & Snowboarding

A win­ter play­ground for all ages. Ski the seem­ing­ly unend­ing slopes of Mar­mot Basin Ski Area, just 20 min­utes away from the town of Jasper. Mar­mot is a great place for all skill lev­els and because of its loca­tion on the east­ern slopes of the Rock­ies, the alpine bowls have the dri­est nat­ur­al pow­der in the Rock­ies.
