avy risk is a big concern, there is always something that is too dangerous to climb. But having said that, there is always something that's safe also. Virtually no-one ice climbs round Revy, there are some routes but usually too much snow hence too much avy risk. The notable exception is Three Valley Gap, in a low snow year or if you know its slid already.
The Rockies are very different snow wise, less snow, colder, more ice climbs below treeline.

If you want to ski more, go to Revelstoke, if you want to climb more in the winter, go to Canmore.
