I've just been to Canada for a holiday in January and had a great time!! This has inspired me to do something I should have done a few years ago and head over for a season. Being from Australia the usual thing would be to head to Whistler or Big White however I am looking to do something a little different. Now I have been to Whistler, Big White and Sun Peaks and out of the three of those Big White was my favourite, the big thing for me was the small community vibe, ski-in-ski-out and great snow (Again being from Australia I am looking for a bit of a sea change). I've done a bit of reading online and have shortlisted a few mountains, in no particular order - Kicking Horse, Sliver Star, Revelstoke, Whitewater, Fernie, Red Mountain and Panorama.
Are there any other suggestions out there?
Is there any reason I should go to one of these over the other?
Thanks for any input,
