A friend and I are planning a road trip in Feb and we want to hit Revelstoke, Whitewater and Red Mountain. We have 8 days, which I'm thinking of 7 ski days and 1 day off to give our quads a rest and do the 4 hr drive from Revelstoke to Nelson in daylight. So my main question is, with 7 days of skiing, which of the 3 mountains would you spend 3 days at? We could be interested in doing a day of cat skiing in Nelson or with Big Red Cats, or doing a 1-2 run day in the side country at Whitewater or Red so if we do that, then that’s the extra day. If not, then which mountain is worth the extra day?
Also, if we do decide on a side country day, which mountain should we do it at – Whitewater or Red. Both seem great for that but not sure what people think.
We like to ski hard – trees, steeps etc, so all the mtns seem to fit the bill, but any advice is appreciated. Thanks,
