    My question is how to prioritize my time: seems like some people prefer Lake Louise to Sunshine Village.

    Is SSV worth a visit at all?

    And is it worth the drive to Kicking Horse for a day? Would love to check it out but not if the local options are just as good.

    Home mountain is Squawlpine, if that's helpful. Judging by this thread, Canadian Rockies folks are a lot more relaxed than Tahovians.
    To add to gramboh, if you hanker for hard snow skiing, Norquay is the East in the West. 1200-1500 skiable vert for any given run and usually eastern style. They do groom well, though. You can buy tickets by the hour as well.

    Have fun and welcome to our backyard. Splitting your days as suggested with SSV and LL sandwiching The Horse is a good idea.

    Pano official opening this weekend and Taynton will be open. My kid is patrolling this winter and said it is really good.

    Backcountry in the Invermere area has been very nice the last few weeks also.

    Opening day at Pano.
    Taynton was good up top, and conditions worsened the lower you went. A nice inversion at the summit.

    skiing at LL with -18 at valley bottom and +2 'C at the top. So busy, so many view, and the views suck.

    We had a big inversion today too. It was awesome. Looks like softer snow for LL than what we had but you can't beat plus 2 in early december

    Was on the other side of the valley, nasty hoar on the surface below tree line. Next snowfall will be interesting.

    Conditions were bomber where we skied. 1.3m snowpack at the top of treeline. No results on an extended column. A crust at 30cm, and the halloween crust was down at 90cm.


    Sunday going to try to hit Louise if anyone else is heading there.

    This seems like more than just an application for the venue of the free ride world tour. However, they are trying to use terrain over there for this event.
