The town of Jasper still has a frontier feel. At the heart of the Jasper National Park, the town is surrounded by lakes, mountains and verdant forest. Make the effort to get there and you will discover why so many people who visit can’t wait to return on a Jasper ski holiday. A visit to Jasper is an unique winter experience.

Elk graze casually on the edge of town, as long trains chug slowly by on the railroad that gave the town life. High above the town lies Marmot Basin ski area, with its relaxed and friendly atmosphere and magnificent views across the Rockies.

20 minutes from town by car or bus, Marmot Basin has something for everyone – wide-open nursery slopes for beginners, plenty of options for novices looking to improve and lots of scope for intermediates looking to show-off their skills. Advanced skiers will enjoy the steeps and glades off Eagle Ridge, with those looking to find new lines able to hike the Knob or Cornice.

With the installation two years ago of a new high speed quad chair, aptly named the Paradise Express speeding access on the upper part of the mountain, the original Paradise Triple Chair was relocated to improve access on the lower mountain. This just two more years after the installation of the Canadian Rockies Express, the longest high speed quad in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, which takes skiers from the base almost 600m vertical to one of the resorts high-spots. Time to visit or revisit Jasper to see what's changed for your Jasper ski holiday.

On your Jasper ski holiday, nightlife in town is very relaxed, with restaurants like Evil Dave’s and Fiddle River delighting the taste buds, but there are several bars like the De’d Dog catering for those after more of a buzz. 

Activities at Jasper Ski Resort

There are plenty of activities on offer, such as dog sledding, snowshoeing, wildlife tours and the impressive Maligne Canyon Icewalk. There is scope for ski touring too along with cross-country skiing. You can also ice skate on a frozen lake.

Direct flights into Edmonton offer ease of access to the resort, though many choose a ski holiday to Jasper as a twin centre destination with Banff or Lake Louise, so flights into Calgary are an option too.
