In recent years Jasper ski resort has installed new state-of-the-art lifts to significantly improve the mountain experience, and the management team’s passion for skiing is infectious!. After only a few runs, you’ll start to appreciate Marmot’s mellow, uncrowded, unpretentious vibe. At 1700 metres, Marmot boasts the highest base elevation of all Canadian ski resorts, and often enjoys heavy snowfall when it’s raining lower down.
