Resort Information

Best for:

If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will leave your students with wonderful, lasting memories, book a school ski trip to Jasper. Jasper ski resort is located in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Jasper National Park in Alberta, in the heart of the Rockies. And, needless to say, the views here are breathtaking. Skiing here is a magical experience, not only because the beauty of the mountain scenery is awe-inspiring, but because the slopes are simply a pleasure to ski. On a school ski trip to Jasper, you’ll stay in luxurious accommodation in the heart of Jasper itself, so there will be plenty to keep you entertained off-piste too.

Skiing Information

The Marmot Basin is an ideal resort for school ski trips, as it allows for natural progression for learners, with quiet pistes and easy run-offs from all lifts. There are 84 exciting ski trails to explore at this resort, with something for every level of ability. Terrain suitable for beginners is accessible from almost every lift, so even the inexperienced can explore almost the entire area. Intermediates will love the well-groomed runs and wide, open bowls, and even advanced skiers will find plenty to challenge them. And the two terrain parks will keep snowboarders occupied too! Snow coverage is excellent as there is consistently plenty of natural dry powder snow. This resort is as unpretentious and friendly as they come, providing your students with a real, authentic Canadian skiing experience.
