The powder is in general far lighter and drier - they call it "champagne" powder. Whistler gets the majority of the press, but being on the coast it definitely can be wetter powder....

The apres-ski life is better in the village in Whistler for sure - albeit commercialized and expensive.

Driving or flying?

If you don't mind a bit of driving, I would recommend Lake Louise, Kicking Horse (Golden), and Sunshine (Banff), probably in that order. The scenery at Louise is unparallelled. All of these hills are max 2 hr drive from Invermere.

And if you are near Field at lunch or suppertime, stop in at the Truffle Pigs Bistro in Field. The meals there are amazing

And next season, book your week at Fernie!! You can ski there and the Big Mountain in Montana at Whitefish.....
