Jasper ski holidays.
Beginners have a wide choice of terrain as there are broad gentle slopes above all of the lifts. You can of course learn the basics at lift level before moving on to higher ground. The slopes are never crowded which is a bonus for novices who are building their confidence. The standard of tuition is excellent and newcomers and improvers will be delighted by their progress. Intermediates have some challenging reds as well as easier blacks. For the best views try the Paradise run from below Marmot Peak or the Caribou Ridge. Advanced skiers will enjoy the powder bowls at high level and the steep and deep powder trails. For stretching terrain take the Knob chair to Marmot peak and then choose the Peak run or the descent into the Dupres powder bowl. Wendy's choice is extremely steep. The powder snow is great for boarders and they also have a snow park with rails and jumps. Cross country skiers have three hundred kilometres of trails.
