What sets a good place to ski apart from a great place to ski? The views. And in Marmot Basin's case, the scenery will leave you gobsmacked. Not only does Jasper's beloved ski resort have proper bragging privileges re: their terrain — 696 hectares (1,720 acres) for all skill levels and highest base elevation of all Canadian Ski Areas — but Marmot can also boast panoramic mountain vistas from multiple spots on the peak.
But as every powder hound and ski bunny knows... pics or it didn't happen. Sharing your experience with your nearest and dearest is part of the fun (even if they're far away), and with Marmot's new wi-fi at both the Eagle and Caribou Chalets (located at mid-mountain and at the base, respectively), it's easy to instil some serious FOMO among your Insta-family.
Bonus: During the Jasper in January festival you can score some serious deals on lift tickets!!
Here are five spots at Marmot Basin where the photos are almost guaranteed to drop jaws.
5 Old Road Ski Run
This easy, meandering run winds down the lower half of the mountain, and enjoys perfectly framed mountain views at multiple turns. Enjoy this run's leisurely pace and soak up the views; it's totally worth it.
