What's it like at Marmot Basin resort?

Marmot Basin is a truly unique skiing destination that is surrounded by the protected wilderness of Jasper National Park, which is Canada's largest Rocky Mountain park. Virtually every location on the mountain offers an inspirational viewpoint. With the highest base elevation of any major ski area in Canada, the season begins in mid-November and lasts to early May. Nature delivers over 450 centimeters of dry, light snow annually. Skiers and snowboarders can explore a wide variety of runs, equally split between novice, intermediate and expert, on five mountain faces. As one of the least crowded major ski areas in North America, powder stashes last for days and everyone has room to carve turns at their own pace.

George Coulter from Canada writes:

Opening day had a good portion of the mountain open with groomed runs from top to bottom.
Returned Dec 1st weekend to fantastic early season snow. Lots of opportunity to make tracks. About 8 inches new.
Hopefully, more snow is on the way! Great family ski hill.
