One of the most unique features of Marmot Basin is its uncrowded runs. This makes it the best place to learn and hone new skiing and riding skills as you don't have to worry about collisions or having enough room to think about what you are trying to do. We all know that sinking feeling of flying off a ridge wondering if you will land on somebody underneath, well Marmot Basin is different, it's virtually like riding your own private mountain.

Marmot Basin's fast modern lift system spreads guests out over the mountain so efficiently, that most days you wonder if there is anyone else up there! Even at peak holiday times there is no waiting in lift lines, so you get more skiing and boarding time, more out of your training, and more out of Marmot Basin's epic terrain.

Terrain & Safety

Terrain & Safety

In Canada, there is no such thing as 'on piste' or 'off piste'; instead, there is 'in bounds' or 'out of bounds'. Basically what this means is that anything within the boundary line is avalanche controlled and safe for skiing or snowboarding.

Essentially, you will get to ride more challenging terrain every day which will make you a much better skier or snowboarder, and, to top it off, the best newly qualified instructors in the industry. Check out the piste map to see what we mean.

With large amounts of snow and expert ski and snowboarding access, the staff at Marmot Basin work extra hard to keep you safe whilst you are riding. On big snow days you will often hear multiple explosions as the avalanche safety team works to open up more ski-able or ride-able terrain. It is an awe inspiring sight when they let off heavy-duty explosives; check out a video of these guys at work!
