MARMOT BASIN OPENS “TRES HOMBRES” FOR THE 2017-18 SEASON
Tres Hombres Expert Terrain Provides Longest Uninterrupted Fall-line at Jasper Ski Resort

After several years of careful planning, and following the development of a comprehensive operational and trail maintenance plan, Marmot Basin is thrilled to announce that the mountain slope known colloquially as “Tres Hombres” will open for the 2017-18 season. Tres Hombres is a large, north-facing and treeless slope, some 18 hectares (45 acres) in size within Marmot Basin’s leasehold. The slope provides some of the very best off-piste advanced and expert terrain in the Canadian Rockies.
