I wasn't thrilled with Sunshine or Kimberley. Have yet to check out castle, KH or Revelstoke but excited to try all three.
Trust me, get to KH/Castle/Revy. IMO they are the best 3 hills in the country! It's no conincidence all of the long-time best skiers from the Bow Valley have relocated to these places.
For myself, the hill I haven't rode but really want to is Shames.
