Hard to say, here in Louise we don't get a ton of snow compared to interior BC but we have tons of steep terrain and a really long season. It doesn't take much snow to have a great day, 10cm's and you can start hucking and bombing chutes again. We also have one of the longest seasons in Canada (November-May) and we have had the whole mountain open for almost 3 weeks now. But this year to be honest I have been driving to the rogers pass a few days a week to ski epic powder.
I think having a GNAR resort is better because you can push yourself way harder with access to ski patrol and such and then once you get your legs back under you later in the season you can either sled or tour access those big lines that also have the epic powder and slay them. Also early season you can always go earn those easy pow turns anywhere. Also it is early season wait a few more weeks and things will start to be shaping up even better then they already have!.
