Depends on your reasons for doing a full season anywhere. Whis is an awesome place for a lot of people. Do a bit more research and don't write-off any locations. Banff etc could also work depending on your ideas of what a good season may include

What are you looking for? In bounds pow, backcountry, park, groomers, all mountain, etc.

Do it, do it, do it!

Unless you have absolutely no coordination, a 4 week course is gonna put your skills up there.

I tell new green riders to try & get as many, 2 days in a row sessions as they can.
You can't really tell your improving that much when you do just a 1 day session, but when you do 2 days in a row. It is incredible how much better you are than you were 2 days ago. That right there is, I think the best motivator ever. It just makes you want to go even more.

If you do the 4 week camp in Whistler, there is no way your going to want to leave.

I've read here recently, a few people didn't have there trip to Whistler turn out as good as they had hoped.
But that's just it right there, they were on trips. Be it a 1 day or a week long trip, your still playin' luck of the draw. It could be awesome or it could be shitty, weather wise.

If you do a whole season there, you won't have to worry about that.
The season there is long, really long.
There will be so many good days, sorry mind blowingly awesome days.
I just went by & looked at the Total cumulative snowfall, 1343 cm for the year so far.
That works out to be roughly 44 & 3/4 days with 30cm of fresh snow.
Ya I know it doesn't always snow exactly a foot every time, but you get the picture. Many, many days with tonnes of snow.

If you do go there, I don't think you'll ever leave.

Whis would be a lifestyle choice. If you like the party thing, clubs and such, then that's a big bonus. Riding-wise, Whis covers it all pretty much. If you don't ride (or want to ride) any park or party hard, then there's probably places that'd be better suited.
