Marble Mountain Resort is located in the eastern region of Canada and it is a region that not only overflows with beauty, but enjoys a rich heritage. The Labrador and Newfoundland region has always been an attraction with its codfish, and lured many English, Indians, Vikings and French to its shores over the centuries. When the fiftieth anniversary of Newfoundland and Labrador becoming part of the Canadian Confederacy came around in 1999, Marble Mountain Resort planted a cedar tree. The tree now stands over seventeen meters in height, so that every skiing and snowboarding enthusiast who enjoys the magnificent slopes of this skiing destination will be reminded of its history.

When asking fellow skiers for the best skiing and snowboarding destination in Eastern Canada, the name Marble Mountain Resort comes to mind immediately. The resort boasts picturesque landscapes, breathtaking views and near perfect snow almost all the time due to being located in a snow belt, where it is blanketed in sixteen feet of snow annually. The Appalachian Mountain Range becomes the skier’s playground, with the summit of Marble Mountain at approximately thousand seven hundred feet and its slopes gliding down toward the spectacular Humber River.

Skiers will also have thirty-five trails to choose from, including seven mogul runs, a terrain park, glade run and half pipe. The chair lift systems that are available will ensure that winter sport fanatics spend more time on the slopes than on the chair lifts. In addition, visitors can try their hand at Cat Skiing, Downhill Skiing, Snow Kiting, Snowshoeing, Ice Climbing and Cross Country Skiing. During the summer and fall months, groomed hiking trails allow visitors to explore the ponds, mountains and valleys, with different trails accommodating the fitness levels and abilities of various hiking fans.

The rental shop can provide guests with any equipment and gear they may need, while the ski school will be able to get even first time skiers comfortable on the slopes in no time at all. Comfortable accommodation allows for the entire family to enjoy a holiday at the Marble Mountain. For an unforgettable skiing holiday, skiers and snowboarders are recommended to try the hospitality and magnificence of the Marble Mountain Resort.
