Sunshine Village

Sunshine Village

“Sunshine has great scenery but i would choose another resort to really ski! If looking for killer terrain i would go to Castle Mountain or Fernie Alpine Resort. If looking for deep snow and more chance of new snow I would go to Fernie or Red. Too much traversing and not enough fall line skiing at Sunshine ” --Powder8Dog

Castle Mountain

Castle Mountain

“ This mountain, located on the Rockies' continental divide, offers it all.  Moguls, steeps, cliff bands, powder, silky runs and pretty much anything else your heart desires.  One thing it does not offer is a resort experience.  This mountain is for skiers not party animals (although there is opportunity for that too).  It has very limited facilities including a...” --Kootenay

Lake Louise

Lake Louise

“ Started working there in the winter of 95. Been skiing there ever since. One of the best hills I've skied at. When there's snow. if it's a lean year, it can get pretty bullet proof.

There is also a lift that has 2 green runs, just for beginners. I am in intermediate skier and like to work...” --popskier

Marmot Basin

Marmot Basin

“ Marmot Basin is rarely ever crowded. Being so far from any major city (3 and a half hours), it only really gets crowded on the christmas holidays and spring break. On busy days, hell even a normal day, the base of the canadian rockies express chair and the eagle express gets pretty crowded because they are the two main ways to get up the mountain, and they are right beside each other. They...” --poNTOonMcConks

Banff/ Mount Norquay

Banff/ Mount Norquay

“ Great resort if its christmas time, as SSV and LL get extremely busy. Its got a great park and Banff is 5 minutes away so really good nightlife. Suprisingly steep for the experts in parts. Great moguls. Really a good family resort too. This isnt a hill you would travel a distance for, but worth checking out if your'e hitting SSV or LL. ” --poNTOonMcConks
