Castle Mt. & Marmot Basin, BC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone have some experience at these hills? The last of the BC resorts I have yet to visit. Looks like good clean no-frills skiing on the web sites.

Two completely different hills and both in Alberta, not BC.
Marmot is in Jasper, very touristy with marginal snowfall - not a bad place if the snow is there, but nothing special. Castle is the low-key, no-frills powder destination, two lifts - one running halfway and the other to the summit with awesome terrain - mostly expert.
Personally, I'd skip Marmot and concentrate on Castle, Banff area, Fernie, Golden, Nelson - all doable as a single trip with fairly short travel times.

Thanks! yeah I knew the Alberta spec. and screwed up the post. Have doene Fernie, the Horse & Nelson. Red Mt. in Rossland is always my fav. Sounds like Castle is similar -gotta get one more trip in this spring if it kills me.

If you liked Red, you should enjoy Castle. Hope you get out.

Haven't skied Castle yet, but Marmot was pretty sparse for snow this year. I was going to do two days in mid-February and it was so rocky, I did the two hour drive to Lake Louise the morning of the second day. It has potential, but it just didn't seem to get much snow at all this year.
