New “Marmot Escape Card” Offers Half-Price Lift Tickets for the Entire Season

This season, skiers and snowboarders who purchase the new, Marmot Escape Card for $75 plus GST, pay half price for lift tickets every day, all season long, with no blackout dates. The Marmot Escape Card not only entitles the card owner to half price full day lift tickets at Marmot Basin, but also at Snow Valley ski area, Rabbit Hill Snow Resort, Edmonton Ski Club and Sunridge ski area, all located in Edmonton.

“We are helping skiers and snowboarders get out to the slopes in Jasper and Edmonton more often, to enjoy what they love most about winter. We are also making skiing and snowboarding more accessible to newcomers so they too can share in the passion we all have for the sport,” said Brian Rode, Marmot’s VP of Marketing and Sales, who added: “Strong early season sales are confirming the value that guests are finding in the Escape Card.”


The Marmot Escape Card is available to those 13 years of age and over. An adult lift ticket only costs $44.98 per day versus the regular price of $89.95. A youth, student or senior lift ticket is $35.88 compared to the regular price of $71.75. Card owner’s children 12 years of age and younger get 20% off full day lift tickets when accompanied by their parent. Savings on hotel rooms are as much as 50% off during the midweek and weekend savings are also offered.

Rode said “we chose the name “Escape” for our new program to reflect why people ski and why they choose to come to Marmot Basin. It is all about the experience and the feeling of freedom one gets in the mountains, while skiing and boarding.”

For the ultimate in convenience, free direct-to-lift upgrades are also available. This links the owner’s credit card to the Marmot Escape Card and the credit card is charged at 50% OFF the daily rate when scanned directly in the lift line, meaning there is no requirement to visit the ticket office. Direct-to-lift upgrades are available at the Guest Services office in the Caribou Chalet at Marmot Basin or at the Marmot Sales Centre, 611 Patricia Street, Jasper AB.
