Our first experience with Marmot Basin was outstanding. Super friendly staff, facilities operating efficiently, appropriate protocols for Covid19. Access to ski runs from parking lots is terrific - best of any resort in Alberta. Extensive terrain and variety of runs for intermediate (plus) skiers. Well worth our six hour drive - we’ll be adding this to our preferred ski locations. ... Full Review

This place is horrible. Terrible snow. Boring runs. You don't want to go here. Especially right after a huge snow fall. Stay away so I can have the whole hill and fresh snow all to myself ... Full Review

Station avec de nombreuses pistes faciles, idéale pour les débutants à moyens. Les skieurs confirmés vont vite tourner en rond. Les cumuls et la qualité de neige sont quelconques, conditions proches de ce qu'on voit dans les Alpes françaises. Pas de logements au pied de piste, il faut aller dans la ville de Jasper à quelques km qui du coup offre une vie après-ski agréable.... Full Review

Took family up to ski. Though there are signs posted that cannabis is not permitted, it is apparent that it is perfectly fine to smoke weed at Marmot. The lift attendant said he couldn't do anything though the fellows were right there. One was so high he fell off the chair trying to get off. Guest services looked at me like I was "crazy" when I reported this. ... Full Review

I have been a long time pass holder at marmot for over 20+ yrs, and I am sorry to say that marmot has not really been respecting their core group of supporters and long time pass holders. Lifts that have not been maintained enough to make it through the season/ or are just barely holding on with half load capacity such as the knob chair, areas that have not been opened up such as eagles east/ caribou knoll/ bathrooms that smell absolutely terrible/ no water in the upper chalet except for 1 fountain that barely works. And all the while raising season pass prices?... Full Review

3 weeks now without snow and the holiday crowd having cleared what was left off large sections of the rest of the hill is making for seriously icy conditions. The hill should be making snow and/or grooming a lot more. Still ok for the more advanced riders up top but make sure you sharpen up your edges and be careful on the high traffic areas approaching the lifts.... Full Review
excellent variety of runs
