Ive never meet @Doonks and never likely to, but personally, I think he gets a hard rap.
At least he's throwing them out there.
If you pull the trigger enough, sooner or later you hit the target. :)

I live in hope mate. I get enough crap for dad jokes from my kids, so i feel your pain.
I was just clearing up potential conflicts of interest in defending you.

all the pokes are done in jest, not bullying.
Its an age old tradition that Doonks is an integral part of.

In fact I suspect doonks actually inflicts way more pain than he ever receives LOL

You just need to go to a few SIC/forum gatherings and he will pop up eventually.
Even to ones where he is explicitly banned ;)

So the plan appears to be 2 days at apex, 2 days at Revelstoke, 2 days at Kicking Horse, 2 days at Lake Louise and 3 at sunshine (Banff)

Rest day in between each resort.

5 days at Banff - 2 at LL and 3 at Sunshine?
Any reason for this generous allocation versus days at Revy and KH?
Not really.
Except old bones might need a skiing rest so I figured better to rest in Banff where there is other activities if required

Will look to stay in Field when we ski LL

Field to LL is 25 mins versus Banff to LL at 40 minutes.

Maybe look at Banff for the whole lot to see if you can get a discount on accommodation

If you do decide to stay in Field, there's no choice of where to have a drink and a meal, but the only place is well worth a visit. Stayed in town for one night in September and the meal was the best I had in the three week trip. Also had the tastiest craft beer on tap...can't remember the name of it:( About half the people working there were Aussies, which is probably not far above the average for BC and Alberta ! Very friendly locals.
