Default Oh Canada!

Im thinking of doing a season in a canadian resorts. my aunty emigratged there and its such a great -place, people, counryside and atmosphere all amazing. Any advice on where to go? im a complete begginer (only picture of me in snow is from 20 years ago, and im 22 now!) but tend to pick things up quite quickly, and with all the powder i here about in Canada im sure the riding conditions are perfect anywhere. but what i would like a is a lively, vibrant resort with a good social life, possible live music scene and not full of rich idiots. im completley open to ideas so throw anything at me! cheers guys. peace

i don't know if i'd say perfect anywhere...but there are a lot of places to pick from. i'd start with B.C.(whistler, fernie, kelowna, kamloops, etc.) and Alberta(the banff area). everywhere will have a bit of everything you're looking for, as well as some things you may not like a whole lot. the lifestyle, musc, vibe will be present wherever you decide to go, but so will the rich idiots. snowboarding/skiing isn't a cheap hobby so these things tend to go part and parcel.

the bigger the resort, the more options you will have as far as things to do outside of snowboarding. whistler is the biggest, has the most to do, etc. banff has 4 ski areas within 45 mins drive time with a few more in that 1-2 hour range and also has a major city within an hour and a half.

that being said, do your research. the best riding conditions i've ever had were in fernie, crazy amounts of snow. a lot of good things are being said about kicking horse(golden, b.c.) and revelstoke b.c. not really beginner friendly but amazing none the less.

personally i would suggest the banff area. i always have a good time when i head out that way. then again whistler would be an experience too. whatever you choose i don't think you'll be disappointed.

You might want to consider one of Vancouver's three local mountains: Cypress Bowl, Grouse Mtn. and Mt. Seymour. I ride at Grouse, and there are a lot of Brits and Aussies working there. It's easy to access by public transportation and it's 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It'll be easier to find a place to live in Vancouver than Whistler, I can tell you that
