Marble Mountain is a ski resort located in the town of Steady Brook, on the west coast of Newfoundland in the Long Range Mountains.

The resort is located on a series of steep ridges forming part of the southern side of the Humber River valley on Mount Musgrave at Steady Brook, approximately 7 km (4 mi) east of Corner Brook. The peak is named in honour of Sir Anthony Musgrave, a colonial governor of Newfoundland.

Marble Mountain is the site of the largest alpine ski resort in Atlantic Canada. Environment Canada's doppler weather radar station "XME", part of the Canadian weather radar network is located near the resort at the summit of Mount Musgrave.

The Marble Mountain Ski Resort is known to have some of the best skiing east of the Rockies with an average of 5 m (16 ft) of snow each year, compared to Mont Tremblant's 3.65 m (12 ft). The resort was a key venue for the 1999 Canada Winter Games hosted by Corner Brook.

Marble Mountain boasts the only detachable high speed quad lift in Atlantic Canada, the Governor's Express. It is 1,660 m (5,446 ft) in length and has a ride time of approximately 8 minutes.
