Here we are. It’s January in Alberta. With the buzz of holidays past still ringing in our ears, many of us are feeling doomed to riding out this typically cold month hunkered down at home with our holiday-thinned wallets anchoring us to inertia.

Well, what if we told you it didn’t have to be that way!

From January 17 to February 1, Jasper National Park’s Marmot Basin is here to help you overcome your mid-winter blues by offering cheap ski and snowboard lift tickets. During Jasper in January, we’re discounting 25% off our adult lift ticket prices. And the deals don’t stop there. Many Jasper businesses will be in on the action with discounted hotel rates and fun winter activity packages to celebrate Jasper’s winter festival.
