Top choices right now are:
Heavenly Mountain Resort
Mammoth Mountain Ski Area
Whistler's best prices will run from now till November 15.
Do you have any particular criteria that you are looking for - glades, park, steeps, high alpine, village scene etc?
From Toronto it's a little easier to get to Whistler or Revelstoke, no border crossing required, lots of flights to Vancouver, then 2 hrs to get to Whistler.
For Revy you can fly nonstop on WestJet to Kelowna then get a connecting flight.
This puts weekend trips well in the realm of possibility, leave thurs afternoon, ride Friday/sat/sun (1/2 day Sunday) and back to Toronto sunday night. Not a concern if you're going for a longer trip but even so you can wasted days on a week trip connecting flights and so on.
In Canada you might also consider Big White, Kicking Horse, Red Mountain, Banff, Fernie. I've generally been going to whistler, these are on my list of next places to try (I went to big white and really liked it).
