I am planning my first ski trip to North America in January next year and would need some help in choosing a resort.
In the last couple of years I have been skiing in the Alps (Chamonix and Swiss/Austrian resorts), and now I am looking for a snowsure place to ski in Canada or US. I have been considering Whistler but then read some articles about El Nino and its possible effects on the snow conditions.... It's a long way to travel there and I can only stay a limited period (approximately 10 days), so I would like to make sure that I can enjoy some good skiing there
What are your experiences from the past, how bad can the conditions get in January at worst? Of cource I prefer powder conditions but I also enjoy skiing on the groomed, so it's not a big problem if it is not snowing all the time
Grateful for any advice!
