We are debating between going to Whistler from Christmas to New Years, anyone have any idea of what the snow coverage is typically like? How much of the mountain is open? Is the heli-skiing worth it around that time? We are advanced/expert skiers coming from New York, any suggestions of what the skiing is typically like then would be helpful.
We initially thought we would go to Chamonix that vacation period, but many people have been telling us Chamonix is more worth it in February, the tickets to Whistler at that time seem to be much cheaper as well, staying in North America for that time period is looking more interesting.
