I am off tomorrow morning (3/18) for a week in some of the continent's most famous powder stashes. Will meet son John in Minneapolis where we will sit together on the flight to Spokane. From there it's a 2.5 hr. drive (mapquest time, which is always conservative) to Rossland, BC. We've never skied either one but have done Fernie and Panorama and Whistler/Blackcomb. W/B has more to offer in one location than anyplace else in N. Am. but the interior of BC offers equally good terrain, better snow, and <5% of the people at 1/2 the price. Trip report in a couple of weeks.

Can't wait to hear what you have to say! That region- including Sun Peaks and Silver Star as well- has long been on my list of "boy would that be a neat region to check out." Will you bring back pictures, too?

It's crazy how low memory/storage prices have fallen.

Have fun. As other ski regions have gootten more developed & popular, in-land BC seems to have still remained relatively undeveloped and uncrowded. Hope it remains so for a while.

Gonna do any cat skiing on the trip?

Maybe, but then again if it's good enough inbounds, maybe not. And, there is this to consider,

Hey if you can find it "Sinners' is one of the best ski movie I have ever seen. Ski art in fact. IT was filmed in Nelsons, BC and makes me want to go skiing(truthfully not a hard task) everytime I see it.
