Four reasons to Ski or Snowboard at Marmot Basin this March
More snow, more sun & more fun! As we transition from the depths of winter into spring Marmot Basin enjoys warmer sunnier days, heavier snow falls and there are lots of great events!
These days, the vast majority of people work Monday to Friday, and weekends tend to be a mad rush to cram in as many fun activities as possible before the workweek begins again. If this sounds like you, we invite you to treat yourself and try the flip-side of a week this March. Here are 4 reasons why you’ll love Marmot Basin mid-week.
1. Ski crowd free
Weekends tend to be busy times practically everywhere you go. While Marmot Basin isn't as busy on weekends as many other Western Canadian resorts, Marmot Basin does become a calmer & quieter place mid-week. Locals, die-hards and vacation connaisseurs enjoy tranquility at the chalet, stress-free parking and sliding straight onto the lifts.
2. Soak up some spring sun
March is the month that brings the sun back to life in Canada. The days are longer, the sun is stronger and summer finally seems just around the corner. If you love to ski or snowboard, one of the best places to soak up the March sunshine is high above the trees in the Canadian Rockies.
What does a bluebird March day look and feel like at Jasper’s Marmot Basin?
  • Picture the bright white of snow contrasted by a sky so blue it almost looks navy.
  • Imagine the heat of the sun penetrating your clothes and your skin to warm places that haven’t felt that sweet sensation of for many a winter month.
3. Enjoy some of the Best Conditions in Canada
It has been a weird winter. Rain at high elevations in the west, and bitter cold temperatures in the east have impacted skiing across the country. Here in Jasper, we’ve escaped this winter’s worst.
Instead of rain, we’ve had snow. Instead of cold, we’ve had relatively warm temperatures. Maybe it’s the fact that our base elevation is the highest in the Canadian Rockies. Rain very rarely falls at Marmot Basin in the winter and our northern location helps us keep the snow we get, giving you consistently good snow conditions throughout the winter and spring.
