Marmot Basin in Jasper opens high alpine ski terrain

The new Marmot Basin Cirque ski terrain is accessible to the public for the first time this winter.

The new 62 acre terrain is suitable for advanced skiers with alpine bowls, steep chutes and endless mountain views.

This new area provides skiing and snowboarding for those with a thirst for off-piste, adrenaline-fueled skiing and riding.

Skiers can expect numerous 125m – 200m fall line runs from 25 to 45 degrees in angle. The total slopes distance ranges from 250m to 500m and the top elevation is 2400 metres.

The highest alpine terrain requires a hike but skiers can also access the lower portions of the Cirque by exiting the Knob Chair.

The new terrain is said to offer some of the best expert, high alpine skiing in the Canadian Rockies.
