Technically where I live at both places are about equidistant from each other... that is when you learn the right roads.
Actually I prefer TL/CV for the vertical, however when I go, I find myself leaving later in the morning and getting my energy boost later that night. So mainly I go for the vast lit terrain at night.
Plus, all the pansies I go with, like Wisp better so when I go with them, I don't have a say. I'll enjoy the snow whereever it is.
