I’m looking to burn some flyer miles (UAL) end of March and take my teen son skiing.
Where might the best conditions be found at that time this year? I know there’s no guarantees but what does your spidy sense tell you?
I’m looking at Big Sky, Banff, or Whistler. I’m looking at these as flights with miles are easier to get than to Denver or Salt Lake City and they currently seem to have some of the better bases. I also considered Mammoth but figured it would be an iffy drive there to Mammoth. Bozeman looked good and back when I had a life I skied Bridger and Big Sky every year. Never did the ridge. The perils of life took over but then things changed and I got back in the game a few years ago. Calgary and Vancouver were flexible as well so I’m a bit torn. I’ve never been to the Canada sites.
Things I’m wondering in order of importance,
#1, where might the best snow be at that time this year? Siberia?
#2, Would the bottom of Whistler be just mush? Would it be crowded? Lots of posers?
#3, Is it a major pain to get out to the three Banff areas each day?
I got about a week to figure this out. Meanwhile I’m visiting my daughter in Ft. Collins CO and will hit Eldora.
