Default RMR, Fernie or Kicking Horse?

Happy New Year all...

Thanks for the advice on the previous thread - so far we've had a pretty sick 2 weeks riding - a couple of small powder days and nearly a week of blue bird conditions. I'm now looking at going a bit further afar next week for a couple of days. I'll be keeping my eyes on the snow forecast but I'd appreciate any advice on what is the more worth while drive - RMR, Fernie or KH?

Ideally I'd like to get a ride in/ride out cabin/condo too - so that's a factor. But I guess the biggest is the quality of the snow and terrain.

Cheers,
Mike

Revy? It's harder to book a ski in/out condo now without high prices. We been looking

Fernie and KH both has lots of options, fernie has better night life. If you are in golden checkout eleven22.

All of these are pretty much 3 nights stay minimum for condo rentals.

Revy, and you gotta eat at the village idiot in town, best burger I have ever had.
But in reality you couldn't go wrong at any of them, which ever one has the most fresh I'd say.

Looking at the forecast KH is meant to get a nice little dump on wednesday/thursday so we're driving up from calgary on thursday and staying at the Dreamcatcher hostel in Golden for a couple of days.

Kicking Horse has had around 50cm in the last 48 hrs so I'm quite excited. Looks like it's a bluebird -32 on Friday morning so I'm hoping the cold will keep some of the crowds away. Also hoping the highway will be ok today for the drive up.
