Jasper National Park - Marmot Basin Plan
Current information about Ski Marmot Basin’s proposals is available at www.skimarmot.com/mountain/long-range-plsn. Information about Parks Canada’s management of the ski area can be found at www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/jasper/plan.aspx. Ski Marmot Basin will present a draft Long Range Plan and draft Detailed Impact Analysis for public review and comment in the fall of 2013.
Marmot Basin proposes to ‘surrender’ 119.6 hectares of leasehold land at the bottom of its lease in the Whistlers Creek Valley. This comprises a narrow strip 250-600 metres wide and approximately 2,500 metres long, including a short stretch along Whistlers Creek. In exchange, Marmot Basin wants 222 hectares of new land for expansion that would include two ski lifts into the Whistlers Creek Valley.
For more information on the impact that such an expansion would have on the woodland caribou and the mountain goat populations, go to: www.jasperenvironmental.org.
