So a few questions:
1. Is there enough interemedaite terrain for a week? My wife is a solid advanced intermediate but would feel most comfortable on blue groomers. Living in Maine teaches you to ski on the snow, not in it. Her ideal trail would be packed pow. I would really like to get some big bowl skiing in. Never done it.
2. How is the ski school? We went to Whistler four years ago and spent three days in their Ski Esprit program - basically you ski with an instructer and the same group all day. It was a lot of fun and very instructional. I would like to do a few days of that and then ski free for a couple
3. Travel logistics - The flight arrives on Sunday in Calgary, presumably in the late afternoon or evening. You then collect the car and drive what I understand is about five hours to Revelstoke. Ski Mon to Fri. Then drive back to Calgary on Sat and fly out Sunday. How is that five hour drive from Calgary to Revelstoke and is it silly to think it can be done by newbies in the dark? I have heard that it traverses some rugged territory and can is subject to closure for avalanches. True?
Appreciate any personal insight you might have. I am not wedded to Revelstoke. If y'all have other suggestions in the vicinity (KH, LL, Banf, Red Mountain, etc) I am all ears.
