    Marmot Basin is set in spectacular Jasper National Park. With seven lifts, it delivers generous servings of light, fluffy, Canadian Rockies champagne powder. 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. From one end of the park to the other, you'll also find miles of ice canyons, and glaciers. Or, stargaze into an ocean of stars in one of the world's largest dark sky preserves.
