Since you refer to x, y, and z; presumably you mean a binormal rather than a normal distribution.
max = 2.25; zMax = 35;
Manipulate[ ContourPlot[ 200* PDF[BinormalDistribution[0], {x, y}], {x, max, max}, {y, max, max}, Contours > Range[step, zMax, step], ContourShading > None, ContourStyle > Thick], {{step, 10, "Contour Step Size"}, {2.5, 5, 10}}]
Manipulate[ Plot3D[ 200* PDF[BinormalDistribution[0], {x, y}], {x, max, max}, {y, max, max}, MeshFunctions > {#3 &}, Mesh > {Range[step, zMax, step]}, PlotStyle > Opacity[opac]], {{step, 10, "Contour Step Size"}, {2.5, 5, 10}}, {{opac, 0.5, "PDF Opacity"}, 0, 1, .1, Appearance > "Labeled"}]
