forget fernie!!! Way too early to go come all this way for nothing(unless they get a massive dump which happens)
Take the others advice and go to KH, theyve been having some epic opening days for the last couple years and worst case you can drive the 45 mins from KH to lake louise which opened all their lifts. Sunshine is pretty epic for this early too.
Whistler is probably the biggest gamble spot in canada lol Friend went for new years last year and got pretty soaked from the rain and i did a trip in mid feb and out of 5 days i got 1 day of good riding. it was the first day so we were so stoked to ride and when we got up the next day it was literally pouring at the village. We watched people walking around holding their boards and skis just soaked. It rained solid for 3 days and on the last day it let up but it wasnt fun, up top was nice and dry and then halfway down youd end up in super wet snow which does not move well because of the weight lol.
