Norquay's park is quite good because it has a chair servicing it so you can lap it easy, and most of the surrounding hills have poor parks. Otherwise it wouldn't be anything special - that's for sure.
Louise & Panorama both have pretty good parks. (Panorama nice LONG park with chair). Pano is one of, if not THE least snowy mountain in the country, but is the best place to take the family for many nice mellow groomers runs and a ski-in village.
Best park in the Banff area is definitely Lake Louise (esp. since RCR is out and they got their jumps back). Going west, the better terrain parks are in the Okanagan (esp. Big White & Silver Star), and then onwards to Whistler, which of course has an amazing park.
Don't forget about Castle Mountain - it's one of the best, right up there with Kicking Horse & Revy.
