Norquay, the closest of the three, is best suited to beginners and intermediates, whereas the other two offer more challenging terrain.

Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 27-Feb-2015)
Great skiing can be found at present in Alberta, with cold temperatures and some light dustings of fresh snow providing some lovely piste conditions. All lifts were spinning at the three Banff (153cm) ski areas and Marmot Basin (119cm), with packed powder providing some great skiing on the groomers. Around 20cm of new snow is in the forecast for the upcoming week.
British Columbia is offering some decent skiing at present, particularly on the upper slopes and at resorts such as Kimberley (114cm) which caught some good new falls of snow over the weekend. Whistler (142cm) sadly continues to struggle, with the lower slopes really suffering at present. New snow is badly needed, but unlike for the rest of the state, no fresh snowfall is on the horizon.
Across on the east coast the skiing remains fantastic although lots of warm layers are needed as temperatures continue to dip well below -20C at night. Some new snow has been recorded at both Mont Sainte-Anne (90/150cm) and Tremblant (110/190cm) during the past week, resulting in some great fresh on piste conditions. Cloudy skies and some light snow are forecast for the next week.
North American Weather Outlook
A very snowy period of weather is forecast for the Rockies in the coming seven days, with heavy snow predicted across a wide area. The biggest totals are likely to be in Colorado, where over a metre of new snow is possible, especially in the south of the state. Less is expected in Utah, Wyoming and Montana, but still around 50cm of new snow is forecast.
Cloudy and cold weather is set to remain in place across the east coasts of both the USA and Canada, with cloudy skies dominating. New snow can be expected too, with Quebec set to receive around 10cm and up to 30cm further south in the US states of Vermont, Maine and New England.
Western Canada is set to remain nice and cold in the coming week, with some new snow in the forecast too. Around 20cm of fresh snow can be expected in British Columbia and Alberta by Tuesday, although the weekend is looking mostly sunny across the board.
