If you have a rental car, you can easily drive to Marmot Basin ski area from Jasper hotels. But after a long day of skiing, you may be too tired to drive.
There is a solution. Marmot Basin offers a free shuttle to several Jasper hotels.
During ski season, Marmot Basin offers the shuttle 3 times a day from Sawridge Inn, Marmot Lodge, Tonquin Inn, Lobstick Lodge, Chateau Jasper, Jasper Inn, Amethyst Lodge, Astoria Hotel, Athabasca Hotel, Whistler’s Inn, Mount Robson Inn, Maligne Lodge and Jasper Park Lodge.
The total trip will take from 25-50 minutes on the shuttle…time to relax before a day of skiing in Jasper National Park. Ya, it is longer than driving yourself. That’s the downside. The upside is you can relax in the shuttle, take in the scenes and maybe meet a few people.
Before you book your hotel, check its website for specials. Some of the hotels also have ski specials where a lift ticket is part of the package. It might just save you some money.
