Your Way to the Rockies
MagicBus Tours prides itself on being Edmonton’s regular scheduled service to Marmot Basin, heading out every single weekend this winter! Go for a day or spend a night or two with our partners in the cozy mountain town of Jasper.
GO FOR THE DAY
Our family friendly services caters to all ages and levels of riders!
Pack your bags and jump onboard to our new motor coach to be whisked away to the Jasper National Park for first tracks at Marmot Basin. When you get off the warm bus, you’ll have your lift ticket in hand and will gear up steps away from the lower chalet. The bus loads at 4pm and departs at 4:30pm back to Edmonton.
Relax and enjoy movies as our driver takes you home on the winter roads.
SKI & STAY
One day is never enough, so why not stay the night or two in the picturesque Canadian Rockies!
On all MagicBus to Marmot tours, you can extend your trip by staying at any of our partners properties. Grab your friends, select your dates, pick your accommodations and pack your bags!
MagicBus Tours makes it easy to book your transportation, lift tickets, accommodations for your trip to Jasper National Park.
Our rates include a lift ticket for the day, or more if you choose to stay overnight. No more ticket line-ups, so you’re on the mountain shredding faster.
The MagicBus is a 56 passenger luxury motor coach. It’s family friendly (non-drinking, non-smoking), washroom equipped, and hosted by a MagicBus Tour Director.

Most Common Questions
How far in advance should I book?
Our buses do sell out frequently (especially Saturdays) so you should book as soon as possible. Generally, for daytrips if you book 3-4 days in advance you should get a spot, and for overnights you want to book a week or more in advance to ensure availability.
Why can’t I select the date I want?
There is either no bus running that day or it has likely sold out. Please note, it’s possible for a depart and return bus on the same day to have different availabilities due to overnight passengers. Contact us to be put on a waitlist as people do cancel!
How old do you need to be to ride?
MagicBus accepts riders of all ages and is a family friendly bus hosted by Tour Directors. Riders that are 13 years and older can ride without a parent or guardian onboard. A waiver will need to be signed for all minors. Overnight stays require at least one adult (18 years or older) in the room.
Where do I leave my vehicle during my trip?
Free parking is available right where the bus departs from (the back side of the Edmonton Inn). Please make sure your vehicle is locked up with no valuables inside. MagicBus Tours is not responsible for stolen/damaged items.
