I have spent a considerable amount of time snowboarding through various parts of Canada and Marmot Basin is one of my top 3 hills out of them all.
On a powder day, the tree runs are heaven and when you're not so lucky the hill is always making snow and the runs are groomed well.
I have to concur with the older comments as well. Mid-week you have some runs entirely to yourself. Nice big carves here I come.
I wish I did the park, because theirs looks pretty stellar.
Watch for the flat spots on some of the black diamond runs and you will have yourself an amazing day!
Considering the issue that many ski hills, all over the world, are faced with changing weather conditions and lack of snow, and the fact that some still haven't even opened, you can skip past what the guy below me has written.
Weather and snow isn't just relative to Jasper and if you do your due diligence and check the conditions before you go ski anywhere then you will not be disappointed. Unless, of course, you're just the type of person who can't be satisfied, and I saw lots of those type of people on a windy day when I was up there on Wed. Hurricane strength winds are enough to close anything down so I wasn't surprised. Again, it's a nature of the sport. Not everyday can be an epic day! But the guest services staff were super friendly and honest about the situation. They gave me a voucher for a coffee to wait it out and when the Eagle started running they sold us afternoon tickets and let us head up early. Some complainers even got snow vouchers, I would never, personally, ever think of trying to get my money back for something that is out of everyones control, but I guess these are tight times??!!
Still found some sweet powder through the trees on my wind day so life was good.
Thanks Marmot. I think you guys rock and your staff are doing a brilliant job.
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie...oi oi oi!
