Jasper School Ski Trips
A UNESCO World Heritage Site

If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will leave your students with wonderful, lasting memories, book a school ski trip to Jasper. Jasper ski resort is located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Jasper National Park, Alberta, in the heart of the Rockies. Skiing here is a magical experience, not only because the beauty of the mountain scenery is awe-inspiring, but because the slopes are simply a pleasure to ski. Jasper offers more than just ski… the town will keep you entertained off-piste too.

With just a 20 minute shuttle journey transferring you from Jasper to the slopes of the Marmot Basin, students will be immediately welcomed to 100kms of skiable terrain. Groups love the variety of slopes on offer and, with the ski schools fantastic reputation, there are plenty of instructors willing to guide you on the best trails and coffee shops.

Beginners will have plenty of variety with over 25kms of gentle meandering runs whilst intermediates will enjoy a wealth of bigger inclines further up the pine-flanked slopes. As with most Canadian resorts, snowboarders are well-catered for and, as with the ski runs, they’ll find gradients split evenly between: easy, intermediate and advanced.
