Spring: The Season for Mountain Adventure in Jasper

Jasper, AB (April 2, 2015) – Jasper, the destination for adventurers only, is in the midst of a stunning spring season. The month of April is the ideal time to ascend new heights in the Rocky Mountains with Marmot Basin and Jasper Skytram.

Marmot Basin has had some of the best snow conditions in the country this winter, and is heading into April armed and ready for a fantastic season finale. This all begins Easter Long Weekend, and continues on to May with well-loved annual events. Marmot Basin is not the only option for Jasper visitors looking to get into the mountains; the Jasper Skytram is opening its trams earlier than ever this year, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to “do two peaks”! See below for full dates and details:

EASTER LONG WEEKEND – MARMOT BASIN and JASPER SKYTRAM
