Jasper Ski Lifts & Lift Passes
The new Paradise high speed quad services the upper area of the mountain. Stretching 4,604 ft (1,403m) over the Paradise face, this chairlift has a vertical rise of 1,331 ft (406m) and a ride time of less than five minutes. The base of the lift is located in the lower area at the intersection of “Old Road” and “Roll Out” and the top is at the existing location of the Paradise triple chair.
The Paradise triple chairlift has been refurbished, relocated and renamed; the School House triple chair is in the lower area of the mountain and replaces the School House T-Bar. This lift is a big improvement to the learning area; servicing Marmot’s best novice terrain, it is ideal for those learning how to ski or snowboard. The recent addition of the new Eagle Ridge Quad Chair accesses two new mountain faces and 20 new trails.
Marmot has a total of ten lifts: one high-speed detachable quad, one high speed quad, one fixed grip quad, one triple chair, three double chairs and three surface lifts. The lifts can carry 12,000 skiers per hour, open daily 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and are spread across Marmot’s terrain, allowing easy access to four linked areas within the entire ski terrain.
The basin-shaped layout of the ski area creates a sense of openness the further up you go, and each lift accesses at least one trail suited to each level of skier or rider (i.e. green, blue and black). The new Eagle Ridge Quad Chair has spread out skier traffic in the upper area, and reduced lift lines at the nearby triple chair. You can now get to 22 new trails from here. Not all the mountain is reachable by lifts so advanced and expert skier especially have to be prepared to hike.
