Which mountain is better Big White or Sunshine Village Banff

We are planning a ski/snowboard trip to the rockies. We are in a bit of a dilemma, which mountain should we go to Big White, Kelowna, BC or Sunshine Village, Banff, Alberta?
Price wise the packages look about the same.
Mountains seem to be similar in terms of height and number of runs.

Big white seems to have a lot of runs in forest while Sunshine has a lot of wide open areas.
Banff seems to have a better party scene.

Could someone share their thoughts about the two mountains?

Does it have to be one of those two??? My vote goes to Sun Peaks Resort in Kamloops BC, My favorite place to ski by far.

We are leaning towards Banff, but we also have some friends in Kelowna, it would be nice to visit them.

I've skiied both quite a bit, and honestly, my heart is in the Okanagan.

Big White is incredible, the bowl, the massive amount of terrain... Banff is nothing to scoff, but I think if you've got friends/family to visit, why not!
