Excellent day of skiing. We lucked out with beautiful weather for January. Staff were friendly. Our kids rentals were great.

Fantastic skiing but your public wifi is absolutely hopeless. Today (monday15th) not many people about but still unable to connect to your wifi. Why advertise it when it clearly does not work. Asked a member of staff they were not at all helpful. Come on get your act together something so simple is letting you down.

Marmot has done some amazing things with the hill. The new fast lifts make it seem that it's never busy - even though the hill is totally full. No waiting in long lines. And good job on Tres Hombres!!

We first visited in 1997 and have been several times, but this was our first visit for some years. It is just such a wonderful ski hill, no lift lines and sometimes it feels like you have the whole mountain to yourself. It is a great family ski hill and a really good confidence building place for new or nervous skiers.

We were here for 10 day over the New Year, and boy was it cold for about 4 days! We had a fabulous lesson with Andi Beard who really looked after us and made sure we kept warm. We would highly recommend this ski school, whether you are a beginner or just want to improve your technique.

The Chalets can get a little busy at lunch time. There is a small waitress served area in the Lower Chalet or a cafeteria and a coffee bar. We noticed that lots of families bring their own food and use the microwave provided.

There is also a very good ski and snow-board rental area downstairs.

We used the Marmot Basin bus to get to and from the resort. There are three buses in the morning which pick up at the hotels in Jasper and three which go back in the afternoon. These were complimentary with our lift passes. The journey takes about 30 minutes each way. There is car parking as well.
