Best early season resort near Toronto?

I've got my winter trip out to BC all planned, but I've got the itch bad so I'm looking for an open resort relatively near Southern Ontario to do an early season trip for a few days. The question is, where?! Looking for the following criteria:

- Within 10 hour drive of Toronto
- Cheap accommodation, doesn't have to be right on resort
- Enough open terrain to keep us busy a couple days

So far Killington Resort looks promising, but only 5 runs might get boring after two days!

Looking to leave Tuesday night, short notice I know, so hopefully someone can chime in with a recommendation before then! Thanks guys.

If you're into park, check out Seven Springs, Big Boulder, and the other resorts near NYC. I think you might think that's too far though. Just a suggestion if you don't mind going that far and like park.

I know, just walked the dog, no jacket or anything. Depressing

I'll pass on park. My last season ended with a shattered wrist off a kicker at Apex, so just looking to get my board on the snow again.

Why wait for winter when I can just go to it?

Moonstone isn't open yet though, is it? Have a hard time believing they have enough snow!

they maybe a joke but..
MSLM is 1 hour away from toronto... blue mountain is 1.5 to 2 depending on how fast you drive... and everything else that's actually legit is 7 or 8 hours away.

so for a crappy hill with a 500 foot vertical drop to be mentioned on transworld, mslm must be doing something right :P

Well Killington has been warm so only 5 runs open still, not worth the trip. Guess I'll have to wait for Tremblant to open. Seriously this is unusually bad, I remember Christmas coming quicker when I was a kid!
