An Outdoor Playground
Welcome to Jasper National Park, one of the largest, natural outdoor playgrounds around! In winter, lakes become skating rinks, trails become powdered paths to new worlds and mountains become roads to exhilarating downhill adventures. There is no better way to bond as a family than while exploring the great outdoors together and we have everything you’ll need for the adventure!
Winter Activities for All
Whether you’re a pro, a novice or just finding your feet, Jasper Park Lodge has classic winter activities for the ‘bigs’ and the ‘littles’ of the family.
Go deep into the many woodland trails around the property. Keep an eye out for any wildlife that you may spot on your journey!
Grab the family a pair of skates and head out for some laps around the most breathtaking rink in the Rockies. Grab some sticks, split into teams and face your family in a game of hockey on one of our mini netted rinks or skate side by side around the loop.
Skate right up to La Cabane on Ice for a steamy cup of freshly brewed hot cocoa sprinkled with fluffy marshmallows and cheers to family fun.
Downhill Skiing at Marmot Basin
Marmot Basin Ski Resort is Jasper’s ski hill with more than 1,675 acres of skiable terrain. Marmot offers skiing for everyone from the earliest beginner to the most demanding expert. Along with 86 named trails, uncrowded groomed slopes and superb facilities. The ski hill is 20 minutes from Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, and daily shuttles are available.
Glide on groomed cross-country ski trails as snowfall on our golf course and Mildred Lake. Both feature incredible views of the local mountains and is a family-friendly activity for beginners to pros.
See you at the bottom! Zip down our private toboggan hill right here at the Lodge. Race the family for a round of hot chocolates and have a blast in the snow!
Our Winter Activity Centre has all the winter gear you’ll need before you set out to explore the park by ice, snow or hill. Rentals of Snowshoes, Cross-Country Skis, Skates, Hockey Sticks, Ice Cleats and Toboggans are included in your resort fee.
