If you’re seeking ski-in, ski-out accommodation you will not find it in Jasper town, which is 25-minutes drive from Marmot Basin ski area, but there are 15 lodges, and some 1,800 beds, located in and around the town of Jasper.
The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, situated on Lac Beauvert just 2 miles (5 km) across the Athabasca River from the town of Jasper, has 442 luxurious rooms in cedar chalets and original log cabins, and is one of Jasper’s oldest and most unique properties, with ice fishing, sleigh rides, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing all happening from this resort.
Other lodging options include the Jasper Inn ($2 million renovation in 2008) with 143 comfortable and spacious rooms, the redecorated Amethyst Lodge with 97 oversized rooms or The Astoria Hotel, which is a cozy little Alpine hotel with 35 elegantly renovated guest rooms.
The Tonquin Inn is located only a few blocks from downtown Jasper, and offers 136 spacious rooms, several with kitchenettes, saunas, and in-room wood-burning fireplaces, and the Athabasca Hotel, in the heart of Jasper with 61 rooms, is priced for all budgets and has a nightclub featuring live entertainment.
At the budget end there are several Bed & Breakfast-style accommodations, without the breakfast, or the European equivalent of guest houses available via the Jasper Home Accommodation Association (www.visit-jasper.com). Or, if you really want to keep your accommodations costs very low, there is also a winter campsite.
