Fernie or Whistler in December?
So the Girlfriend and I are Intermediate snowboarders, the gf hasn't been to a big mountain before. Looking at a few destinations this winter... just looking for some input!
My top two choices are Whistler or Fernie. We're looking at going in early December so I was wondering about the condition differences between the two. I've heard Whistler can get rain early in the season... I don't want to book and wish we went later but I want to avoid the x-mas season rush and it would be easier for us to get holiday time while we're still in 2012. Also wondering about accommodations there, nightlife, trail availability, etc, really any info!
We were initially just looking at driving to Tremblant but western destinations are not unaffordable compared to QC
We were gonna book relatively soon as theres crazy start-of-season package deals
Any tips or experience would be great!
