With the return of cold temperatures and fresh snow, we are excited to announce that Marmot Basin will be opening on Friday November 16th, 2018. The warmer than average temperatures in late October paused our snow-making efforts, however they have now resumed and are being complimented by Mother Nature with 30CM of fresh snow in the past week! There has been 90cm of total snowfall so far this season and the settled snowpack at mid-mountain is sitting at 55cm.
Stay tuned to our Weather & Conditions page for further updates on which runs and lifts will be open on November 16th. We are very excited to start the 2018/19 Season, and look forward to welcoming you to the slopes very soon!

On the Mountain
The Tres Hombres ski out trail has seen some work, to improve the egress for skiers and boarders from this fantastic new terrain.
We have also been working hard to make the top of our mountain more epic than ever with some serious snow farming efforts that will hold more snow in the Peak Area and along the Ridge Area than we've previously seen.
Marmot's snow safety team has been working to lay fencing in this area, which will help trap more snow on rock faces by slowing the wind in this area.
Inside the Chalets
- Brunch will be offered in the Caribou Lounge on Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 9:30am and running throughout the day.
- The pizza station at the Caribou Café will feature not only delicious stir fry and pizza, but also various pasta dishes as well. This station will operate everyday.
- A new station will be added at the Paradise Café called Ski Patrol Wraps - of course featuring a variety of yummy hot and cold wraps, made on demand everyday.
- For your caffeine-fix! Anyone who brings their own travel-mug will receive $0.25 off their Starbucks drip coffee.
