Going to be taking a road trip with the girlfriend up to BC from Seattle after Christmas for a week and a half. Looking for beta on the best places to go, any good lift ticket deals and backcountry access. Also would be sweet if any one wants to hook up to go touring or show us around the resorts. We both have avy gear, training and have experience in the bc.
I've got my truck setup with a canopy and a sleeping platform so we'll be pretty mobile and go hopefully wherever the snow is falling. The plan is to head up to Revelstoke/Golden area first then possibly Banff or down to Fernie then to Nelson then Rossland. I've been to Revy, KH and Red before but I've heard a lot of good things about Whitewater, so I def want to go there. Fernie also looks good, but we'll prolly only go if they're getting dumped on. I've taken a roadtrip up to BC the last couple years but this year I want to do more backcountry, especially since lift tickets cost so much. I've heard Rogers pass and Whitewater are good spots to go. Any advice on other places to go?
We'll be staying in the truck most nights, but we'll probably stay at a hostel at least a couple nights to cleanup and dry our gear out. I know it'll prolly be hard to find rooms available around this time of year. So if you have any beta on good hostels or other cheap places to stay that would be rad.
Anyways, thanks for reading and I look forward to reading your responses.
Cheers! And heres to it dumping a shit ton next week.
