Trip advice: First time snowboarding Canada
I'm on an exchange semester in Canada (origin from Sweden) and when the finals are done December 19 I want to go on a snowboarding vacation for a week (20-27 Dec) to either BC or Alberta, probably BC? I have tried to do some research of my own but it would be a lot easier if someone with experience could help me out with good locations for these dates / where to stay / cheapest way to travel inside Canada / other insider tips!
I'm a decent boarder but sadly without much backcountry experience, something I want to try and change as much as possible. So far I havent met any likeminded people at my university here in Canada so it looks like I'm travelling alone, so staying in a Hostel / a place were its easy to meet other people to go riding with would be a great plus!
The cost of having my gear shipped over from Europe was sick, so I will have to rent my gear, tips on where to do that?
I appreciate all help I can get, either here or you can PM me so we can talk on fb/skype or whatever. If anyone else has travel plans the same dates and would like another travel buddy, also hit me up! =)
