Top 5 Reasons to pick Jasper for your next school ski trip
1. Mix education with skiing
Enrol your students at the free to use Marmot Learning Centre – a ski-in, ski-out classroom where they can learn about avalanche awareness, conservation schemes, emergency situations and career pathways into winter sports.
Students studying GCSE or A-Level Physical Education and Sport can showcase their skiing or snowboarding skills for a marked assessment. More advanced skiers can go even further and take part in a 3-day Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance Course (a recognised qualification across UK snowdomes and dry slopes).
2. So much room to explore
Jasper is a place where you can escape the half-term crowds and long chair lift queues. Due to the resort’s wide slopes and diverse terrain, you will feel like you have the whole mountain to yourself.
3. The wildlife
It’s a true wilderness out there! There aren’t many other ski resorts in the world where you can spot a family of elk, a moose or even a grizzly bear on the bus back to the hotel. Well known as the best place to spot wildlife in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, you may be lucky enough to also spot bighorn sheep, black bears and mule deer.
4. Jaw-dropping scenery
Waterfalls, ice canyons, breath-taking mountains and large expanses of land – you just can’t beat Jasper when it comes to nature. From Maligne Ice Canyon, to the UNESCO listed Jasper National Park, the Icefields Parkway and Athabaska Falls, you’ll be spoilt for choice for non-ski activities in Jasper.
5. Canadian hospitality
Be greeted by a friendly Canadian smile when arriving in Jasper. Canada is famed for Maple syrup, ice-hockey, its beautiful landscapes and its people’s unfailing politeness. Staff in Jasper always go the extra mile to help out their guests – from ensuring that boot fittings run smoothly to high quality ski lessons for all of your group.
