I got a ton of FF miles and an MCP. So I'm tempted to hit Whistler, which I've not been to, for a few days.. say a long weekend in March? And then do the same at Banff (Sunshine/Lake Luise), which I've only done it once really late in the season (May/June).
I can't combine them in one trip due to work restriction (besides I got miles so the flight will be free anyway). Either trip will be a long weekend kind of trip.
Question is which mountain will be better at which month? I'm guessing March will be prime season with good condition on either place. But mid-April could be a bit iffy in terms of snow condition? So which mountain will (statistically) be safer bet to hold off till April? Also, will Whistler be madly crowded in March?
Also don't want to bump into any Canadian national holidays in either trip. I'm not aware there're any in mid-March or mid-April, right?
