As Leigh says, they are all good. Probably the most important consideration if you have the flexibility is to watch the weather and go where it snows. And never leave good snow to find good snow.

I spent a week in Lake Louise and sampled the "Big 3" Banff area plus Kicking Horse. KH felt like the best of the lot (opinion perhaps biased because that's the day we got the Big Dump)

So, the full context is...

 

A pal of mine and I drive from Santa Fe>Western Slope>Wyo>Montana>Canada

 

Drive North (dirtbag session):

Colorado - Ski Monarch, Crested Butte, Durango, Telluride, Cooper, maybe Vail.

Wyoming - Jackson

Montana - Bridget, Big Sky, Northern Montana?

 

BC - Meet Brother and Family. Fernie? Panorama? Kicking Horse? 4-5 days.  Brother and Family will be flying out, so they might fly into Calgary and rent some transportation

 

Then, South, retracing our steps, or maybe back through Boise and SLC.

 

So, 2 1/2 weeks?

 

Slopeside isn't a must. Fine dining isn't a must.  Remote is ok.

 

Something to think about as we wait for snow.

Hi Spence;

 

The consensus is “they are all good” “Different, but good”.

 

We need some more info on the specifics before the list launches into a whole raft of responses based on the pretty remarkable cumulative  experience out in this part of the world, some which may not be relevant at all

 

Is slope side lodging a must?  Multi-site road tripping ok?   Adding a cat day?  “Family friendly” and “great trees “ sometimes might be at odds.  Something off-hill to entertain the group?  Great dining needed or roughing it?  Ease of airport access or is remote ok?  Renting a vehicle?   How much can you handle in total trip cost?  Do you plan on buying Epicpasses, Maxpasses, or skicanada.org multi-tickets? (the last option might be important if you are not buying the former two)

Hi -

 

Wondering what the Plaid consensus is on some of the Alberta/BC ski areas.  I've skied Whistler, Panorama and Lake Louise. Wondering about Fernie, Red Kicking Horse.  Good spot for a family?  ood spot for trees/steeps?

 

Thanks!

 

Spence
