Marmot Basin is set in spectacular Jasper National Park. With eight lifts, it delivers generous servings of the light, fluffy, Canadian Rockies Champagne powder. It can be like surfing on a cloud. Located about 350 kilometres west of Edmonton, Jasper is one of Canada’s signature ski towns. Known for its natural rough-cut beauty, this is a real mountain town that loves winter, putting it in a category of its own. From one end of the park to the other, you’ll also find miles of ice canyons, and glaciers. Or, star gaze into an ocean of stars in this place which has been designated the world’s largest dark sky preserve. Read more about Jasper and Marmot Basin here.
