The snow's coming this week. FINALLY.
If you want to stay local, you can't go wrong with Whistler. It is one of the best resorts in North americs and it's only a 2 hour drive away. Us Vancouverites are quite spoiled. The freeriding there is unbeatable if you get it on a good day, or even on a bad day.
Baker has some decent freeriding but I wouldn't go there unless there is fresh snow. That's only 2 hours from Vancouver as well. There isn't much for accomodation there though but lift tickets are much cheaper than whistler and there aren't any crowds.
The interior kicks ass, The snow is nice and light and it's much cheaper than Whistler. The mountains are big enough and there aren't too big crowds to worry about either. I prefer Big white
