I'd be very interested to hear about the earthship performance in that climate, it's somewhat similar to my own with short winter days which I presume are going to be thickly clouded more often than not.

Where the two differ- of course- is the 15ish degrees Fahrenheit colder average winter temperatures for you, and the snowpack which I'm thinking may in some ways be an asset in terms of insulation and albedo-provided supplementary solar gain.

One aspect of the Earthship that many overlook is the berming. We live in an Earthship, and without any heat, on a very cold winter day, the building will still not drop below 58 deg F. Even if a climate doesn't have the sunshine, it's a lot easier to heat up from 58 deg F, than from 32 deg F.
