I have moved last year from East Coast to Seattle area and was able to go skiing in Sun peaks BC last year for our family vacation.
I was also able to go skiing in Whistler for a few days with friends (nice but big crowed and poor weather) and a week end in Crystal Mountain.
Got 3 kids 4, 10 , 13 all skiers and a wife skier as well.
This year we are looking for a full week vacation (16 to 23rd of Feb) in a family friendly resort : Kids ski school, walk able village/resort, snowtubing, dog sledding etc...
I have looked at the following :
Whistler Blackcomb BC 5 hour drive
Silver Star BC 6-7 hour drive
Big White BC 6-7 hour drive
Fernie BC 9 hour drive
Whitefish Mt 9 hour drive
Big sky might be an option but getting very far...
Any other hidden gem....
Ideally we are looking for a "quiet" resort, good snow, good weather (if possible), not too crowded.
Sun Peaks was great but we would like to try a different resort.
Any recommendations, experience (good bad) will be welcomed
many thanks and think snow... I can see some from my office....
