Imagine standing at the top of a mountain in the Canadian Rockies, with the sun making

the fluffy, fresh powder glisten and the air is crisp and cold so when you exhale you can see

your breath crystalize right before your eyes. Picture a beautifully rugged landscape, seemingly

untouched by man, and a green and white horizon that seems to go on forever. Below you is an

almost six kilometer trail to the bottom of the mountain. You take one more deep breath and

shove off, your skis floating on top of the snow as you aggressively navigate the trail down. This

experience, and more, can be yours with one of our Jasper ski packages.

Jasper and Marmot Basin are located in Alberta, Canada in the Jasper National Park.

The park is eleven-thousand square kilometers, 97% of which is protected wilderness which

means that when you visit you can have the opportunity to experience more than just skiing or

snowboarding. This stunning park is not only one of Canada’s biggest national parks but it is

also one of the oldest, dating back to 1907. There are thousands of miles of trails that you can

go cross country skiing on to really take in some of the majesty of the mountains and canyons.

Maligne Canyon is considered one of Jasper’s hidden gems and harbors stunning frozen

wonders. The best way to see the magic of winter in the canyon it’s best to hire a guide because

it can be treacherous. Purchasing one of the Jasper ski packages truly opens up a wonderful

winter world for you and the whole family.

terrain and boasts Canada’s highest base elevation. The longest ski run is just under six

kilometers, but no worries, because this mountain has eighty-six runs to choose from; 30% are

novice, 30% are intermediate, 20% are advanced, and the final 20% are expert so regardless of

your experience level you will have some fantastic runs to choose from. The runs themselves

are full of variety and flaunt pristine groomed runs as well as chutes, alpine bowls, trees, and

bumps. There are two available terrain parks, one featuring jibs, jumps, boxes, and rails and the

other mainly features rails and boxes, so whatever your terrain park skills are, they have you

covered there too. This mountain offers up to six months of skiing and snowboarding because

they receive over four-hundred centimeters of snow annually, giving you a fantastic window of

opportunity to book one of the Jasper ski packages. But make sure you are prepared for the

frigid weather, and if you are a more aggressive athlete and like to do back country, be fully

equipped for anything the mountain could potentially throw at you. There are seven lifts on the

mountain and three lodges, one at the base and two mid-mountain. They even have a daycare

facility for the little ones while you enjoy shredding. You can’t go wrong!

family and definitely will not disappoint. But don’t forget, the best way to get these amazing

memories is by booking one of the Jasper ski packages to get the biggest bang for your buck.
