Enough to keep you interested for awhile.
Poutenen will give you the lowdown on driving time as he is in Calgary.
Pano, norquay, and kimberly don't get a lot of good reviews, which is why i haven't gone. So many great places to go anyway. I actually haven't been to castle (driven by) but i hear great things and plan to check it out this year.
I don't care for Nakiska unless it gets pounded with snow. Then the monster glades are fun.
Sunshine has great snow and is close.
Louise has a better park and longer runs but not as much snow and it gets icy faster than ssv.
Kicking horse is super steep.
Revy has great trees and snow.
