Rocky Mountain Romance Karen Anderson, Ski Specialist

"Jasper makes a perfect twin centre holiday with Lake Louise & Banff. The drive between the resorts is one of the most stunning journeys I have ever taken, well worth doing in daylight so you don't miss out. The Jasper Park Lodge, which we feature, is a unique luxury hotel is a glorious setting on the banks of Lac Beauvert"

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.
