I went there by myself, and had a blast riding those slopes! What a beautiful place, great snow quality and runs for all experience levels. Can't wait to ride there again!

Depending on weather and time of year, Marmot Basin is the best place to ski in Jasper and the prime spot for Edmontonians to get away from the city. The powder is incredible if you go to the top half. Enjoy the chalet at mid-mountain instead of the crowded chalet at the base. When I went there Easter Saturday, it... More

Awesome skiing during the shoulder season. nice long runs and no line ups for the chairs. Affordable rental equipment that seemed to be near new. We enjoyed a wonderful affordable lunch in the upper lodge.

I have skied Marmot a thousand times and love this mountain but last month a bad fall led to a torn calf muscle and my first personal experience with the Ski Patrol at Marmot. I was treated to some great personalities and Dwayne correctly diagnosed what was confirmed by my doc later in Edmonton. Three cheers to the ski patrols,... More

First weekend of April and the snow was actually really good. Very little ice, warmer temperatures, smaller lineups and many challenging terrains to learn on for all skill levels make Marmot a great mountain for Spring snowboarding. Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend of snowboarding up here. Only thing I wish it had was a village at the base for a ski... More

Great weather and snow conditions. The peaks revealed themselves occasionally through the fog we experienced in late March. No line ups at the lifts and little to no crowding on the slopes. Well worth the drive from Edmonton. PS. We visited mid week.

Marmot is my favorite ski hill in the Alberta rockies. On this visit we skied all day without having to wait in lift lines a single time. Weather cooperated for a fantastic day on the slopes.

Highly recommend spring skiing in Marmot Basin! It was a great day, and if you come for more than one day be sure to get passes cheaper at AMA or grab an escape card. (If that pays off for you) otherwise it can be a tad expensive! Food was ok, if you are gluten free your choices will be limited.

The fifth day of Snowboarding, 4th mountain...apparently we lucked out when my husband and I went. There was 50cm of fresh snowfall 2 days before ...WOW, the views were amazing, runs were amazing! Did the hike up to the summit to try out some fresh, untouched powder (2 feet of it!!!) It is not a hike for lazy people, but... More
