I am looking into completing a season in either Banff or Fernie. So, I am looking for great skiing area's but also a decent liveable town. I am an intermediate skier. I've looked at similar threads but they're all about staying for a week or two. I feel as though I have mustered enough information in terms of skiing, weather and conditions at both these places, so I am looking more for recommendations about which place to live for 6 months +. I'd be arriving anytime between May and August/September 2015. So let's say, price for a room and the amount of competition I'd be up against in securing a room, past time activities during winter months, places to eat, places to party, cost of living etc.
I'd also be interested in skiing at other slopes whilst I'm there so, which has the most ski areas surrounding it? I would probably rent a car so driving isn't an issue. I know at Banff you can get 3 ski areas under one ticket which is really appealing.
After I do a season here I am most likely doing a season in Alaska so, I'd like my time in Canada to be more about socialising and partying yet still have the great ski/boarding it has to offer.
I'd still be open to other places in Canada, e.g Quebec but it'd need to live up to the party atmosphere I'm looking for. I've done a season in Queenstown, New Zealand and really enjoyed it, if that helps you know more what I'm after.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
