Marmot Basin Terrain

Located in the breathtaking, vast and ruggedly mountainous landscape of Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Marmot Basin is a ski destination that inspires lasting memories. With 1,675 acres of superb slopes, the resort offers 3,000 vertical feet of superb skiing and snowboarding.

With 86 marked trails on four distinct areas of the mountain, the terrain is nicely varied; from long, gentle, winding novice runs to steep, high alpine bowls and chutes and glade skiing through verdant pine forests. The ski and snowboard runs are split evenly between easy, intermediate and advanced, making this an ideal destination for the whole family and all abilities.

The Terrain Park has been moved to “Lift Line” in the lower area of the mountain, making it accessible to skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.

Marmot Basin is a big playground and this winter our new terrain park is bigger and better than ever before. Our state-of-the-art snowmaking system in the lower area allows for improved features and better transitions.
