I have no experience with Canadian real estate that's just what I've read. If you're attending Colorado, why not look into Colorado resorts or PNW resorts like Baker? If you were to live near a smaller Colorado resort, you could have the place to yourself most week days. Look at Wolf Creek, Silverton, Monarch Mountain, places like that.
Colorado are you serious? Clearly you have never been to the interior BC.
OP: Revy is the place you want to go I promise. You could get a split and access the most insane terrain there is. Hopefully you enjoy face shots, Pillow Lines, and steeps.
