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. Tres Hombres has long been coveted by advanced skiers and boarders who have been anxiously waiting for the day to come when the area would open to public skiing. Its’ powder-filled bowls and chutes descend 367 vertical metres (1,204 ft.) and is Marmot Basin’s longest, uninterrupted fall-line.
