January 16, 2023 If you’re looking for the go-to place for the “last hurrah” of snowy mountaintops, you’ll want to choose Marmot Basin this spring.
Here are our top 5 reasons:

1. One of the Longest Ski Seasons In Canada

Marmot Basin has the highest base elevation of any major Canadian ski area at 1,698 metres, and it also has one of the longest ski seasons in Canada.

Thanks to temperature inversions (science!), as spring starts to bloom down in Jasper, there will be no shortage of powder well into the season.

2. Let’s Get This Party Started

Marmot Basin’s season lasts well into the spring and so do their celebrations! Enjoy live music every weekend in April, or stop by on a weekend and take part in one of their many events, like the Kokanee Freeride Mid-Mountain Party, Aloha Cup, and Jasper Pride!

3. Après Ski

Did you think we’d forget Après Ski? No matter what your idea of après ski is, you can enjoy the mid-afternoon sun on one of their many chalet patios, or cozy up around a fire inside their warming tents.

4. Perfect For The Family

5. Say Goodbye To Lift Lines and Crowds
