Sun Peaks B.C. in winter, Victoria B.C. in summer
NEW PLACE: Well, Fernie isn't even two hours away now, so I might sneak up there for a day and crash @Turoa Kiwi's trip. His jokes are so good, he'd have to be fun to share a few runs with!
I am a Super Senior (75y.o.) so a season pass for me at Fernie is $99Cdn. PM me when/if you met up with @Turoa Kiwi and I may join you in my winter capable motorhome.
In March I have trips to Whitefish (never been) and to Sun Peaks
Pm me when at Sun Peaks and if I am around, we can ski some runs together.
BC "ski sabbatical": 4 days each at:
  • Red
  • Whitewater
  • Sun Peaks
As I mentioned above, I am a Super Senior and get free skiing at Red and Whitewater (and Panorama and Castle) and Sun Peaks is my home mountain, so PM when at the above and if I am around we can meet up and ski some runs.

This year, I have an early season (Dec 9-11) at Sun Peaks, and two weeks later will be at Sun Peaks over Xmas.
I won't be around for your first visit to Sun Peaks, but send me a PM when you are at SP during the Xmas Holidays.

Sun Peaks is a great place to spend the Xmas Holidays. Although it will be busy, with skiing on both sides of a valley on 2 mountains and 2 ridges, you would be hard pressed to name a mountain in N. America that spreads skiers out better than Sun Peaks.

Does that season pass come with discounted Buddy Passes?

Buddy?! ;)

According to the Fernie website, my Super Senior pass has gone up to $159Cdn (horrors) but is eligible for up to 8 family and friends day tickets at 25% off with Xmas and Feb 15-25 blackouts. I will be at Sun Peaks during those blackout dates but can be at Fernie most of the rest of the time.

First runs opening day usually they open Tahawus (north side blue) and Showcase blue under the quad.. they'll run the gondola and ski Ruby Run- back down to the saddle, PIA IMO-- then they add Sunway and others on the bottom. They'll blow snow on Pine knot down to the straightbrook and get the cloud open.. Last couple of years they've done nicely piecing the mt together and blowing enough snow we don't lose it with a warm up.
Temps should be excellent this week for snowmaking.. Tues maybe we'll get several inches.. You'll have plenty to ski in January..
See you on the Mt soon!!
Actually I am hoping for a day or two in December at Gore. Lower mountain, like Sunway, is fine for me. Easy terrain but long enough to limber up the legs. I don't need to ski well, just look the part and stay upright. :Teleb:

Just looking to get my 30 days in. Probably only northeast as we are not on Ikon . But flights are cheap. California would be fun with my in laws.

Mostly at home in Whitefish, and a big day trip planned for nearby Blacktail. Ha ha!

Used to head to JH pretty darn near every winter since about 1972, but probably snuck in my last visit in January 2020 before the shit hit the fan. Just not my cup of tea anymore.

Sun Valley has become a regular thing as Mrs. K and I both love it for so many reasons. We've got friends there, and we usually regroup with other (very old) friends from afar, too. Nothing like a week's worth of lift tickets that cost as much as our home mtn season pass. :geek:

Sure thing. I’ll get back to you re dates.

I’d love to catch up with you again @DanoT

I have an Epic Northeast Weekday Pass for seniors so mostly Stowe, Okemo, Wildcat, & Sunapee. Plus a couple of trips to Colorado to ski with my daughter and her husband. He works for Vail corporate and gives me lift ticket vouchers.

I use Noaa's point forecast, save a point for each layer of the mountain. Tough to do if you're traveling.

The app is NOAA Weather by Granite Apps. I like its interface. Very straightforward.
I use NOAA weather as well, but it doesn't work for Canadian sites, it's a U.S. government domestic site.

This is a recovery season for me. Last February I split my achilles tendon and had surgery March 22. It has been a long rehab! I'm released to go skiing this year but I am opting for the mellow terrain at Timberline Lodge. I take my two sons on a ski trip every winter, and this year we will be in Government Camp and maybe do the Troika of Timberline, Ski Bowl, and Mt Hood Meadows on consecutive days.

I am looking at going to Diamond Peak for the 3/10 demo day. I am getting new skis next year and true demo day are hard to come by any more. This one looks promising. Plus, odd for a Left Coast guy but I have never skied in Tahoe. 2025 is my 70th, and Heavenly is on the short list for a family birthday bash. So my wife and I will be scoping out some places to stay in South Lake Tahoe while we are in the area.

What’s the best weather forecast to use on The Powder Highway? Apps?
I use Meteoblue and find it easy to decipher and pretty accurate
I aways used Wayne Flan's avy site. Best info for sea to sky which it 12 to 36 hr prior but this year Wayne this year is no longer with us. Rip
The Canadian goverment weather info is reliable just not be as detailed for snow layers.
