why are you putting the post down? it provided the basic profile of all the ski hills then you go and say all the hills have undertimable snow, then agree that you have the best hill(s)
i've skied a couple places in BC and Alberta and i liked all of them
Kicking horse can go into droughts for the season but they only last for acouple of days, once the season begans to slow down, so does the snow. but there are storms that come, and they do come around winter holidays. last season we got a storm that brought 30 + a day for around a week during the holidays. and many people are agreeing that it is a good place to go, but the lines seem to get bigger on the weekends
Fernie is full of terrain that offers everything and Its RCR, so it might be a bit pricey, but you could buy tickets that offers skiing at all of the hills owned by them in the rockies and i havent experienced the night life there, so i cant say anytihng
Mt Washington i heard is epic, my friend skis there and she happens to enjoy it, i would really like to check it out, especcially with the new lift and terrain
havent skied bigwhite or silver star, but i would agree on them being good places to check out
i would also reccomend Lake louise: I grew up in the town for 12 years and it has gotten more and more expensive, but with a long season(nov-may) and ever so lovely snow, steeps and view, it would deff be a RCR place to check out, sweet park too!
Sunshine: wonderful terrain, and if your into hikes, check out dellirium dive(avy gear though)the snow is great there and you could get a pass for the three local hills(louise, sunshine, norquay) if you want to do them in 3 days
Banff is a busy town, it offers sunshie(20-30 min drive) and norquay(little hill, good skiing for families and park). and lake louise(45min)Banff has lot of bars to check out, watch out for the asian invasion when your there and once again the prices on everything
