Dashing Through the Snow!
Grab your trusty steed of a sled from our Winter Activity Centre and hit the snowy Rocky Mountain slopes. Embrace the frosty air that kisses your cheeks pink! There is nothing better than a fresh sheet of fluffy snow to make for a speedy slide. So when you wake up to a winter wonderland, be sure to add tobogganing to your daily itinerary. These hills might not be as daunting as our mountain marvels but the downhill sprint is an activity that is fit for the entire family. The more the merrier! Take everyone out for a leisurely ride or make it a Christmas Eve tradition. Or take turns racing to the bottom of the hill. Ready? Set. GO! Last one down buys a round of hot chocolate!
Whether you’re trying to summit a new peak or prefer a steadier slide, our National Park is known for its epic skiing conditions and top-of-the-world views. Just a short drive away is Marmot Basin, Jasper’s well-known ski hill, fit with uncrowded groomed slops and 86 trails to explore and conquer. Did you know Marmot Basin is Canada’s highest base elevation at 1,698 m (5,570 ft)? It is truly a bucket list hill that skiers and snowboarders alike will want to hit this season!
If you’re looking for mountains of adventures with less of an incline, our resort turns into a winter wonderland with groomed cross country ski trails tracked as snowfall permits on our golf course and Lake Mildred.
