Gramboh's trying to shorten those lifelines. 

I think so.  I'll take Whistler over Revy/KH  in the vast majority or scenarios.  Vs. Fernie/Castle, that's a tougher call IMHO.

I would agree and even though I am not a big fan of Whistler, I admit that there is a lot of mountain there and every thing else.

 

Castle is the anti-Whistler and to me its terrain is sort of like a mini Snowbird, except with 2800' vertical it is not all that mini.

Hard to argue with that list.  That's one thing that has annoyed me since KSL / Squaw purchased Alpine Meadows - it's a very legit resort on its own and it sort of just gets lumped in with Squaw now, but then it doesn't seem to count towards the overall standing of the two combined.

Great list except for the snowfall part.  If snowfall is one of the criteria, under 300 inches means you don't make the cut IMHO.  Aspen, Big Sky, CB and Taos are all closer to 250 than 300.   Whistler, Crystal, Fernie and Kirkwood seem logical substitutions keeping in mind the other criteria listed.
