The Background -
I'm 20, going to University, live in Langley, B.C( about 45 min south-east of Vancouver). I go to school during the months of May -Dec and then take the "spring" semester off to ski. Last season was spent in Fernie but this year i'm going to be staying home - mainly because of wanting to be with friends, family, the cost, and the fact that I already have a good part time job here.
So I WAS pretty much decided that I was going to buy a seasons pass and spend the season at Baker. I came to this conclusion after considering the distance (160k to Whistler vs 80k to Baker) , the cost of the seasons pass, and the atmosphere/vibe that I like a Baker etc. I now though feel torn.... Whistler would just be so sweet in terms of terrain and lifts. I cant be moving up there and driving 4-5 hours a day just seems like such a waste,I was considering trying to tear the back seat out of my civic and somehow sleeping it and staying up there 2/3 days at a time.
Anyone see some other options? Something i'm missing? What would you do?
P.S- North shore mtns are not an option, just too little snow and challenging terrain.
