What a find. Incredibly quiet friendly resort. Oooox Compact but enough variety to keep most skiers busy for a week. Snow in February is superb but it is very cold, unseasonably so at -20 during day. Average for this type year is -10. Wind very...More

Still my favorite Mountain to Ski in Alberta. Virtually no wait time on the lifts. Great mid-mountain chalet. Lots of great runs. Nice green run from top to bottom for beginners.

We love skiing very much and luckily, we then found a place that could bring us a Sky Time's Best Experience in life. This place is worth for visiting with couples with its mountain views we got much running down and up.

We had a great time, we skied Sunday and Monday. The slopes were never busy, and we never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a lift. We will definitely be back. AMA and Costco both had discount lift ticket options.

If you're looking for a mountain that isn't a over-marketed, family packed or party resort, Marmot is your mountain! We were the 5th car in the parking lot. The prices were perfectly perfect! We bought an Escape card to get 50% of our 2 days...More

I always love going to Marmot. There are so many different types and levels of runs that it's great for children, families, and very advanced skiers and boarders. It's rare that many lifts are closed, giving full access to the mountain. (Exception is the 2-person...More

I'm sure this place has been reviewed to death, but here's our input for a family with a 11 year old and 13 year old. Arriving as a newcomer needing rentals is chaotic, but handled very well with friendly, patient staff who always point you...More
