Battle of Resorts

Wanted to get some Opinions of which resorts that I have ridden are the best, all the resort match ups are based on proximity. If you wanted to provide any insight to why you chose any resort I would be interested to hear this.

The following are my opinions.

Castle vs Fernie
Winner = Castle - Less crowded, All fall line runs, great wind sift, closer to home, know all the stashes

Fernie vs Whitefish
Winner = Close one, but Fernie is better, not always fogged in, a bit more snow and the traverse from the east rim at WF gets super annoying, but really I love both.

Panorama vs Kimberely
Winner = UGH, I try to avoid both of these places, but I would have to choose Panorama due to the vertical feet and the extreme dream zone. If either of these resorts ever got any snow my opinion of both of them may be better.

Nakiska vs Norquay
Winner = Norquay - Steeper, better park, better nightlife

Louise vs Shine
Winner = Louise - More varied terrain

Kicking Horse vs Revy
Winner = Really a toss up, but I will go with KH, closer to home, better on mountain accomodation

Whitewater vs Red
Winner = Red, gladed are so sick there, more access to cliffs of the lifts, Longer vertical. (The above lift terrrain at Whitewater is also super sick)

Apex vs Big White vs Silverstar
Winner = Apex, less crowded, great terrain at the top. (Big white is flat as a golf course and the conditions at siverstar when I was there were atrocious, so I dont have a good read on that Mtn)

Powder King Vs Sunpeaks
Never been to either

Mt Seymour vs Mt Washington
Never been to either
