New Runs Opening for the 2017/18 Season at Marmot Basin
Marmot Basin has been working on the Tres Hombres project for more than 10 years. Last night they unveiled that five brand new runs are being added this year and are scheduled to open next week! This brings the total of runs to 91! You can see a full map here. With ski conditions being so great this year as well as the addition of snow machines (which will give them an estimated 25 extra days this season) skiing and snowboarding in Jasper has never been so exciting!
Tres Hombres will be a boot pack/ski pack black diamond and double black diamond that is 2270 ft long which is 3 times the length of Charlies Bowl which was their longest run before Tres Hombres. This North facing slope is filled with potter snow which means it will last longer than other slopes.
They have also renovated the cafeteria which will be open for the season soon. With an updated look inside and menu items that will elevate the dining experience, Marmot Basin has it all covered. From great coffee and snacks to new items like gourmet hot dogs and avacado smashies; you’ll want to stop in!
