The uncrowded slopes of Jasper allow students to cascade freely with space for beginners to try out their newly acquired skills and the more experienced skiers and snowboarders to perfect their turns. Set in the heart of Jasper National Park, the main ski area of Marmot Basin offers up a wide choice of trails as well as a chance to see some local wildlife. There is even a chance to learn more about the area at one of Parks Canada’s classrooms manned by qualified conservation experts.
