So this is the list of resorts that I’m looking at for next year:
- Red Mountain
- Big White
- Lake Louise/Mt.Norquay/Sunshine Village (staying in Banff)
Silver Star has been recommended as has Kicking Horse, but if the list is too long it’s gonna be impossible to decide, and with Kicking Horse at least, I think you can do a day trip from Banff, so we could check it out from there.
I reckon a lot of people would ask why I’m not looking at Whistler, and to be honest I’m not sure why I’m not considering it… but right now, I’m not.
So what am I looking for in a resort? Well, in the season gone I got a great taste for riding off piste, so a resort with good snow and good terrain is high on the list. Some of the resorts above also have great parks, which again is a big plus. Quieter slopes are always nice, and, when you’re staying with in a group, being close to the slopes can be handy. I should also say that a hot tub would really sweeten the deal…
