I like Fernie a lot, other than that I seem to prefer AB resorts over BC so far. And AB is colder so the snow seems to stay better longer.

- Lake Louise has the best park in the area, except maybe COP but that doesn't count for me
- Sunshine usually gets larger snow dumps, and it's got a wide variety of terrain
- Kicking Horse has chutes, chutes, and more chutes, other than that I didn't think it was as good as the hype
- Revelstoke has lots of Vert (biggest in NA of course), but other than that I've heard it's not amazing, good but not amazing
- I'll be heading to whistler in a few weeks so can report back then

We're going to try get down there if the snow is good. A friend did a season there and loved it (the mountain, not the town so much) so going by that and the recommendations here we're going to push to fit it in if we can. Because we're finishing up in Calgary rather than starting there it suits to go to Fernie last without going out of our way too much.

Fernie is 100% worth the trip as long as the snow is decent. I prefer it to all other mountains I've hit around here.

Depends on what time of year your trip is in. Non-peak season you should be able to book the hostels a few days before you go, peak season you'll want to book at least a week in advance, if not more. If people see a big snow dump heading for Fernie things book up.

I think the moral of the story is....hit up KH and RMR, which is ok with me...
