Thanks guys. For Revelstoke and Kicking Horse, do I fly into Calgary? What would be the best mode of transportation from airport to the resorts? If I rent a car, what are the chances of road closures between the resorts in mid March?

Also, how do Revie, KH, Lake Louise, Mt Norquay, and Sunshine compare to Whistler/Blackcomb?

Def fly into calgary its a shorter distance from there. There are rentals and bus transfers avail from that point. If its snowing heavy there's a good chance the road from kh to revy will be closed the only thing u can do is keep your eyes and ears open for the forecast. I've never had the chance to go to whistler during the winter so couldn't tell u what the riding is like but I can tell u that its def pricier than the other resorts. Whatever u choose tho u can't go wrong.

So, it snowed in northern BC this week.

Here's hoping that's an omen.

Default Costco lift tickets 2014/2015

Are the Costco Ski Tickets for 2014/2015 out yet? I'm from Aus and will be travelling to Canada in Feb, possibly doing a bit of a tour. Most interested in Banff area and Panorama/Revelstoke/Kicking Horse.
