Alpinism & ice climbing = Calgary, 1 hour to the mountains
Rock climbing = Vancouver, 1.5 hours to Squamish

Both places have alpine / ice / rock / resort skiing / back country skiing within a few hours drive. West of the divide has better snow and avo conditions, and you will get more skiing done. East has better ice and a longer season, and a better alpine scene. The snow season however is shorter (a little more fickle), especially the avo conditions.

As previously stated, interior BC has the best snow - Nelson, Red Mountain (resort) and Revelstoke (BC) in particular. It's a good trip from either Cowtown or Van.

Where are your study options? SFU, UBC, UofC?
