We are trying to figure out where all the snow has gone this year. It sure ain't easy to find. A bunch of friends had just an awful time at Whistler over the Thanksgiving and Washington conditions are terrible. But, here are some of the options we are looking at:
- RSN. This is just a great summary site with conditions and everything. Of course, they won't tell you that 16 inches of snow at Deer Valley are just terrible, but I think we can all guess that 🙂
- Sun Peaks. A bunch of our friends were going to go to this place because the snow is better. Only issue is that there isn't that much snow up there. About 29 inches right now and it is mainly a skiing oriented place vs. Whistler. The best place for kids to stay appears to be according to Delta Sun Peaks Resort thanks to its pool and hot tubs. Does require 3 night stay during the winter break though. See Sun Peaks Reservations for more details.
- Whistler Blackcomb. Where everyone goes. Has the most amenitites, but according to Jeff, not the super best snow. On the other hand, there is 48 inches on the ground there right now. They had 12 inches just overnight!, but of course it is incredibly expensive. C$500-700/night. Wow!
