Winter Festivities in Jasper, Alberta

In Jasper, located in the province of Alberta, you’ll find an alpine town that is encompassed by diverse terrain, a lack of crowds, and jaw-dropping natural scenery that you have to see to believe. With ski season officially underway, the town that lies among the rugged Canadian Rocky Mountains is ready to welcome visitors with new offerings at Marmot Basin. From updated facilities and varied terrain to minimal lift lines and consistent snow that skiers can always rely on, Jasper - one of just a handful of lift-serviced ski areas in a national park - is calling all skiers seeking to reach new heights this 2023-2024 ski season.

What’s New: New this season, the resort will introduce the new Knob Quad Chair that will reach the highest alpine regions of the mountain providing even greater access to the vast, above tree-line bowls and chutes including the recently opened Marmot Cirque terrain. The new addition is a game changer that will take skiers and boarders to an elevation of 8,261 feet with a vertical drop of 1,260 feet, allowing visitors with access to more advanced terrain than ever before.

Additional Winter Activities: In addition to hitting the slopes, wintertime boasts a variety of unique experiences including ice skating on the frozen Mildred Lake, dog-sledding, basking under the stars of the Jasper Dark Sky preserve (with a chance of catching the Northern Lights!), which is the second largest preserve in the world. For the adrenaline junkie, visitors can explore the Maligne Canyon’s frozen waterfalls on an icewalk tour, go ice climbing, fat tire biking along Jasper’s winter cycling trails, or partake in a sky-high heli-snowshoeing experience. During the month of January, Jasper holds their festive three-week celebration, “Jasper in January,” where mountain culture is embraced with a variety of activities and events including a delicious Poutine Showdown, a competitive Jasper Pond Ice Hockey Tournament and concludes with a spectacular fireworks display.
