Here is my 2 cents..

...pending on the season and weather of-course:

Louise = long runs, tons of ride-able mountain.
SSV = better feeling snow (more natural), secluded, quality terrain.
Norquay = Seems good for a windy day as it is sheltered. Also if you are too lazy to stray far from Banff as it is really close.

I would recommend riding a day at SSV and a day at LL, pick your favorite and ride there. No hate for Norquay, but you will get a better "big-mountain experience" at SSV/LL.

Cruising @ Lake Louise:

a little off topic but I actually got a pretty good board for this trip, a few weeks before I even thought about going on it.

Lake Louise is 100 000 0000 times better then sunshine. Evenl though sunshine does have some good days and Hiden gems, Louise is more constant and I think just way more fun to explore, if it's our first time there you will have a blast, dot waste your time at sunshine
