Hahaha all of this coming from someone who skis Castle?? You obviously havent spent very much time in Banff. Dont get me wrong I really like Castle, but its a lot more windy than the Lake or Sunshine. Anytime they get a decent storm the upper half of the mountain takes forever to open, and when it does a lot of their acreage is just windslab.
We deal with the cold by layering, it also means it never rains here. Its also a nice central location, meaning easy striking distance to Kicking Horse, Revy, Fernie and yes Castle. Theres a really strong ski touring/mountaineering community here too. There are lots of nearby hut based tours, and various avalanche education and courses are not in short supply.
Sorry that was a bit of a rant. I think you seem like a really knowledgeable person most of the time, I'm just tired of people shitting on Banff when they have obviously spent next to no time here. I mean really, the old STD joke again? At least we have women here.
