So far, I'm thinking Whistler Blackcomb. I went out there last spring for the IFSA Junior North American freeskiing comp and loved it. It was just my dad and I and upper mountain was awesome, lower was basically closed but looked like good trees skiing. Great cliffs, great runs. Whistler I thought was less challenging and more crowded, but we were only there for 5 days so what do I know.
But just to give you a sense of how we like skiing- lift lines are fine, crowded trails not so much but bearable. Super challenging terrain- cliffs, steeps, bumps, trees, you name it. Mad River Glen is our home mountain, so steep woods runs and cliffs are no stranger.
We are all really good skiers, and we're not looking to ski groomers. At all.
We've also been to Le Massif, and the glades were good but not as challenging as I was hoping. Skied all over the East coast, so we're really looking out west.
So, is Blackomb the place to go, or is there somewhere else?
Thanks and let's hope for a great winter
