Back in the 1920's, Marmot Basin near Jasper, Alberta, CA was recognized by locals as a great place for cross-country skiing. Over the next few decades, snow cat skiing was eventually replaced by a rope tow, then a T-bar and finally in 1968/69 the first chair lift was installed. Since then Marmot Basin has grown to some 1,720 acres of incredible terrain, with 3,000 vertical feet and 7 lifts. The ski area is situated within Jasper National Park, a UNESCO Canadian Rockies World Heritage Site and at 5,570 feet has the highest base area of all the Canadian ski areas.
The new Roundshot Livecam is located atop the Paradise chair top terminal and provides sweeping views of Jasper National Park, the Jasper valley and the Icefield Parkway. Along with its sister Livecam at the top of the Jasper Skytram just over the hill, expect a steady stream of beautiful panoramic photos of the Jasper area year-round.
