Whistler averages about 100 more inches of annual snowfall
Whistler - 469"
Zermatt - 350"
BC is known to have epic snowfall days through Feb/March.
The skiing in Switzerland is more likely to be average I'd say (weather not terrain), but I would way rather go to Europe to ride if I could. The experience is going to be like no other. You can ride in North America any year, hell you could drive to BC in a decent time and ride. Whistler is always crowded.
I mean if you're looking for an almost guaranteed powder day - there might be a few better choices than Whistler. But you're looking at less to no amenities.
I say Switzerland - no question.
