I'm in Edmonton now but grew up in the South East of BC. Grew up skiing Fernie and Kimberley and then later moved to work for Panorama Mountain Village.

Also enjoyed skiing at Marmot last year and of course taking trips to Golden and Rossland.

We're quite far from the mountains now though (3-4hrs) so I am spending a lot of time on cross country skiis. Not as much of a thrill but at least I am on skis!

We skiied Le Massif a few years back. It doesn't have any true green runs, it uses that label for the crosscuts--those diagonal runs--and all of them have uphill stretches that you have to work at. Probably only noticed because we were tired after 2 days at Mont Ste-Anne.

Hiya - Quebec City here. I'm most looking forward to checking out Le Massif this winter, in the nearby Charlevoix area.

Let go, or get dragged.

Hi,

I'm Jen and I'm from North Vancouver, where I have numerous mountains at my fingertips. I ski and snowboard, usually at Mount Seymour, but always hit Whistler (about an hour from my house) a few times each season too.

Already bought my early-bird pass and looking forward to a great season this year!!

Here's another Canadian skier chiming in. I am in New Brunswick, so for any vertical at all we go to Quebec (Mont Ste Anne) or Maine (Sugarloaf). I've skied Whistler once but not likely to go back.

However, like many Maritimers, I now have a daughter in Alberta (Edmonton) so DH is already calculating when is the best time to go visit her and which ski resort we should hit at the same time. Any recommendations?

Lol... Well, it's not Whistler but Blue Mountain is pretty super. It's vertical is 742 ft. I grew up doing bigger vertical but I love Collingwood and I'm five minutes from the hill.
