First Long Range Plan Approved

Marmot Basin’s owners and operators have continued to work diligently towards upgrading the ski area for the enjoyment of all. Marmot Basin has had a challenging set of development parameters to meet over the last decade, as large scale developments in a National Park must follow specific rules and regulations. Marmot Basin’s President and CEO Dave Gibson, his staff, and its shareholder group are extremely proud to announce that Marmot Basin has recently received approval for their 1st Long Range Plan.

Marmot Basin is now poised to move forward with the following four initiatives over the coming years:

  1. Expanded snowmaking Marmot Basin’s interim lower mountain snowmaking system will be made permanent and snow making expanded into the mid and upper mountain. This expansion will improve early season coverage ensuring skiers enjoy even better conditions from early November through to early May
  2. Expanded parking and improved public access Increased parking and road expansion will assist traffic flow and improve the arrival and departure experience for guests
  3. Improvements to the Caribou Chalet Expanded public eating area and additional washrooms for guests, along with improving the overall presentation of the lower chalet
  4. Minor re-glading in the mid-Mountain area Milk Run, Elevator Chutes and Little Chicago haven’t been gladed in over 30 years. This slight thinning of the forest will improve the skiing/snowboarding experience within these runs.
