First, I want to say I really appreciate all the input you guys give. The personal experiences and information really help out!
So, I was pretty set on Whistler for a late Jan/early Feb 2017 trip, was still a little worried about the possibility for rain but was about to pull the trigger until I found out about Banff.I have heard of the three ski areas there as I have family who live there and have been to the area, though not to ski. What I didn't realize is exactly how close they all were and that one ticket could cover all 3 locations and there's free transportation between them. I'm looking at a 5 day lift ticket, the cool thing about Norquay is the night skiing which I like to do. So I was thinking spending a few nights there, possibly a day as well (I know its small) then splitting up the rest between Sunshine and Lake Louise...
So, I'm curious for those who have been, how was the experience? Any general tips or best places to stay, close to the action?
Also, how was the free transportation? How often did the shuttle run?
Any other comments on any of these ski resorts would be appreciated!
