Jasper's only ski area is located 19km southwest of Jasper Town. A daily shuttle connects the two during the season. Although not legendary, its 95 runs and the longest high-speed quad chair in the Rockies means Marmot is no pushover – and its relative isolation compared to the trio of ski areas in Banff mean shorter lift lines.

The cons: it can get cold (wrap up) and there's no overnight accommodation on site.
