Fly in to Calgary, rent your car, check out conditions. No fresh coming, head W. to Banff. Fresh possible, S. to Fernie and nearby Castle Mtn. (if you think you'd like Red, Castle may be similar, cool locals mtn. with some great terrain and "real skier" population). Or go W. to Banff and ski L. Louise and Sunshine. If you haven't spent any time in Banff, do so, it's one of the great mountain towns of the world. The public hot springs are like a old time "turkish bathhouse." If you start smellin' fresh, time to head over the divide to Kicking Horse (plan some gapper time on the pass, the Canadian Pacific puts on a show), but Golden is pretty primitive, don't plan on any sushi for dinner. Panorama deserves all the nice things said about it in Ski, and Taynton Bowl rocks, plus there's some good restaurants in Windermere and the valley, and the hot springs at Fairmont and Radium. Either way, keep the Lizards to the S. and K.H. in the N. as your powder possibility, and Banff/L.Louise in the middle for solid fun. The World Cup DH at L.L. has some wicked cruisin', the scenery is beautiful everywhere you look, and the backside is great if they've had snow. Sunshine's improved access to it's top stash, Goat Eye, I think. You ought to have a ball.
