With around 4 meters of snow per season and 100 piste kilometers, Marmot Basin is less busy than the larger and more famous resorts in the Canadian Rockies. Although the ski area is smaller, it has a lot of variety. For example, descending through forest areas but also wide open slopes. As icing on the cake, you can enjoy the view of the fantastically beautiful Jasper National Park at the top of Marmot Peak.
