Perfect ski resort for tree skiing?

Im looking to plan a ski trip around next christmas which i know is a long way a way but what would be the best ski resort in terms of tree sking, terrain, snow, and things to do at night. Ive considered whistler and lake louise but ive heard whistler is crowded and lake louise doesnt get to much snow. suggestions would be much appreciated. thank you

I have Been both places and love them. Lake Louise gets some of the best Powder and if you Do Go to LL stay at the Post Hotel or Fairmont Chateu. In the US The Three resorts around park city are great, and Park city town is awesome. I prefer the Canyons.

Vail is the PERFECT ski resort! We have been there 3 times now and evry time is heaven! we were actually thinking of checking out whistler as quite a few friends have been and said it was good there, for skiers as well as non-skiers (and some in our party are quite new to skiing)... but those friends recommending whistler have never been to vail.

but if you havent tried vail, you defintiely should! plenty of runs to suit all levels of ability, plenty of snow always (it is never icy) and sometimes when the sun is out you can ski without gloves (thats in january). I heard from the operators there that in March you can ski in a tshirt, and the snow is still not icy, it is like mashed potatoes...

well let us know what you pick and when u go on your holiday, how it was! happy skiing!

we just came back from our skitrip and i am missing it terribly already!

i would suggest going to either south lake tahoe there is great tree sking and groomers. also some great steeps but at night there are a bunch of casinos and if you are not into that there is a mariot that has a bunch of cool little shops and bars o and then there is the lake

Whistler is a great resort-huge mountain, amazing variety, great snow, long season, friendly people, and fun village. Crowds were not bad when I went, but perhaps over holidays it is busier. Also, it can be a long ways to travel and a bit pricey. Certainly alot of great destinations in Colorado, Utah, etc. But, I went to Whistler for first time last season, and can't wait to go back!

I must say, I vote for Vail, too! Great lodging (check out www.tivolilodge.com) and the skiing can't be beat! Also, restaurants and nightlife, if you're interested! It's fabulous!

Since the original question was regarding tree skiing - I will add that Whistler does have a lot of great tree skiing - both marked runs and unmarked.
Lake Louise is fine resort too, i have only been there a few times, but generally I skied the runs, didn't get into the trees too much, so can't really offer any advice there.

Lake of tahoe is one of the preferable
place for you to ski. The place is terrific.

Revelstoke has the best tree skiing, terran and snow that I've ever expereinced, but there's not a lot to do at night in the town. Whistler might be your best bet after that; Lake Louise snow is often icy and can be thin in the trees sometimes (it was for most of last season).

I'll rep one for the East Coast. When Killington gets past 125 inches of snow or so the trees start to rock. There are stashes everywhere - mapped and unmapped. If it snows 6 plus your in for a great day.
