Question Your opinions please

Paolo is getting itchy.... he senses the presence of snow on them thar hills. time to plan and book a trip. but to where???

temperatures and freezing levels in eurolandia are bouncing up and down like a spring, ensuring little promise of nipple deep soft stuff. and so thoughts of long hauling it come to mind.

there are some brucey bargains getting about to a few places, but checking piste maps suggest mixed feelings. after 9 hours of flying and a shed load of jet lag, its gotta be worth it.

so far, i see banff, but that looks so small as to be dull....?

jasper looks like it could be bonkers fun, but closed due to avy risk...?

and then there could be the american theme park known as whistler (but kinda been there done that already).....

so where rocks for a weeks worth of jet lagged sliding in a few weeks time?

quality insider, local knowledge can and will be repaid in the form of beer on arrival! (even if you are under aged! )

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I always default to Utah. Some Mt Baker peeps may disagree but I think there's no place on earth you have a better chance at great snow than SLC. Where are you now and where have you been?

It hates everyone. Don't feel like your being picked-out from the crowd.

What's the new spot in Canada. Revelstoke Mountain or something like that? That place looks amazing. Kicking Horse is another one I would look at. Not to mention Roger's Pass is very close by.

Well if you look anything like your avatar I can see why they pick your ass out of line Wish I had suggestions but I don't know Canadia very well, and don't want you sitting in the US pokey either.

US immigration pokeys offer little in the way of nipple deep powder! lots of mexicans and cubans.... but best avoided.

and hey! what's wrong with my avatar? that's my passport foto!
