Marmot Basin has a good variety of green, blue and black runs with some nice chalets at base and mid-mountain. The ski lifts rarely require a wait and the resort is quite busy but not crowded. The snow school is also fantastic, I’d highly recommend...More

We took a school party during February half term. The slopes were pretty empty with little or no lift queues even during their busiest week. Staff very helpful and food reasonably priced up the hill.
