More than 6 days of skiing in Alberta

6 days of skiing, plus half-price bonus days, in Alberta’s glorious Canadian Rockies all on one pass. Could there be anything better?

National Park lovers will adore Marmot Basin

Like the Big3, Marmot Basin is nestled in the pristine wilderness of one of Canada’s most famous national parks – Jasper National Park. Beginners and experts alike will love its dry “Alberta smoke” powder snow and uncrowded slopes, spread across five mountain faces. Plus, it’s only a 20-minute drive from Jasper, an authentic Canadian mountain town known for its laid-back pace, friendly locals, and untouched, wild scenery.

Plan the ultimate Alberta ski trip

Alberta skiing is known for its quintessentially Canadian scenery, dry powder snow, and famous ski resorts steeped in nostalgia. Now, with Marmot Basin, Banff Sunshine, and Lake Louise Ski Resort all on the Mountain Collective Pass, driving up from the states or renting a car from Calgary and road tripping through the Canadian Rockies has never been easier.

In winter, it will take you about 3.5 hours to drive from Banff to Jasper. The drive is breathtaking – taking you through the Ice Feilds Parkway, named by Lonely Planet as one of the best road trips in Canada.

With one pass, you get two days at each resort, plus 50% off each additional day you want to spend there. Plus, Mt. Norquay is also 50% off if you want to extend your stay in Banff and Lake Louise and take part in our Trifecta Challenge.
