I don't know why you would consider going anywhere other than Whistler, except maybe Baker which is more like 2.5 hours.
I live downtown and Whistler is 1h20m-1h30m max to get to in the morning (without driving like a moron, if you speed a lot you can make it faster). It is without argument one of the best resorts in the world (if not the best) in terms of snowfall and terrain.
