Hmm. 395cm < 400cm, but we know how they are with their numbers!! (2hr drive my Ford Escape!)

Another possibility: Beaupré, Quebec has Mont-Sainte-Anne that gets the required > 400cm

Or it could just be a round trip back to Whistler! :razz:

Could be.

Keep in mind that if it weren't for the unusually low snowfall in the 2009-10 season, the average would be well above 400cm.

I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

Too late for me today, I already submitted my entry. But the way my luck has been going, it's not going to make a difference anyways :|

After some more research, I'm siding with you. Mont-Tremblant seems to have more going for it as far as the final stop on their so-called Mystery Escape.

Eg.
As of 2005, Mont Tremblant had been recognized by Ski Canada Magazine as the #1 ski resort in Eastern North America for 14 consecutive years.
Is a year-round resort.

There is also a nice lead in for another clue:

Mont-Tremblant has a race track called Circuit Mont-Tremblant. It once hosted Formula One, Can-Am, Trans-Am, and Champ Car World Series competitions.

Although to be honest, I'd hesitate to call either Mont-Tremblant or Beaupré a city ;)

I had the same thought! Whistler and Oliver only have a small populations too though, so I don't think that's a factor. Who knows with these Contest Monkeys though. Hopefully the next clue will help firm up a single answer.

Yeah, they get waaaaay more than the 400cm mentioned in the clue though, which leads me to believe that the choice to use it has some significance. That's my story anyway. :razz:

Clue: This city has a mountain that gets over 400cm of snow a year.

Possible answer: Mont-Tremblant, QC
Hmm. Not sure where you got your paraphrased clue from... :|

The full clue, from the official site:
"Famous for its ski resorts, this Canadian town is home to a mountain that gets about 400 cm of snow a year"
about vs over makes all the difference in firming up Mont-Tremblant in my mind.

I got it from someone who actually watches the show.

In the end, didn't make a difference to the answer, and the video posting didn't show up until super late so I would have missed yesterday's entry if I'd sat on it.

Sounds like Mont Tremblant to me. Thanks.

Although irrelevant now. I thought it might be Ferni BC.
They get 37ft a year. That's 1127 cm. Whistler gets 39.1ft
So I would assume that these are common numbers for AB +BC
snowhills.
