If you could go anywhere

I mean at a reasonable price, not like alaska heli skiing.
But like regular resort skiing, unless you know somewhere with cat/ heliskiing for ultra cheap.

Where would you go.

I don't think you need to look for "the best", just "really good". Some places I'd like to go for a vacation: Whistler (again), Breck (because of CRO's vids), and Lake Louise (just because). Honestly, if I won the lottery I'd make a list of all the mountains and stay at each one for a few days.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Baldface, Alaska, The Swiss and Austrian Alps, New Zealand, Chile. Not that any of those places ar exactly "affordable", but I'd still love to go. Hell, anywhere that gets steep and deep is good for me. That's why I love the PNW.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Good Lord, be careful. Sick terrain, but that place is a death trap if anything goes.
