Jasper Ski Holidays
Jasper will appeal most to ski enthusiasts who view their winter holiday not just as an opportunity to awaken long forgotten muscles, but as an invitation to visit some of the world’s most beautiful wilderness areas. This said the skiing does provide a challenge, and the exquisitely dry Rocky Mountain powder falls generously.
The ski area, Marmot Basin, is about 20 minutes from the town of Jasper. It’s serviced by a regular shuttle bus, the price of which is included in the ski pass. Skiers of all levels will love the skiing here; the slopes are uncrowded, the pace is sedate and the flow from piste to lift is uninterrupted.
