Starting January 12, the winter only Snow Train Express departs Edmonton on Friday afternoons for the six-hour trek to Jasper. Upon arrival at the Jasper Train Station, you can catch free shuttles to town hotels. For skiing at Marmot Basin, a $12 shuttle connects from town. After two full days of skiing, the return Snow Train Express departs Jasper to arrive back in Edmonton before midnight—just in time to grab some shut-eye before starting the office grind on Monday.
