OTHER CANADIAN SCHOOL SKI TRIPS

Jasper

Marmot Basin, located in the breathtaking landscape of Jasper National Park, covers an incredible 1,675 acres of superb skiing and is only 30 minutes from the friendly town of Jasper, where locals go the extra mile to welcome their guests.

In the last decade Jasper has benefitted from new developments and infrastructure. In 2009 the longest high-speed quad chairlift in the Canadian Rockies opened, allowing visitors to get straight to the top of the mountain more quickly than ever before, and two more brand new chairlifts were added in 2011, making the whole mountain hugely accessible.

Reassuringly safe, you’ll experience more than just skiing here with a choice of educational add-ons which explore local wildlife and mountain safety. This resort benefits from uncrowded trails and virtually no lift queues, while the après options are astounding – enjoy ice-skating, curling or a trip to the Maligne Ice Canyon.
