I have nothing against huts, but considering what you are looking for I still think Rogers Pass offers the best skiing options. There are something like 250 avalanche paths off the Pass road, not to mention all the skiing in between and above them. If you have not driven over the Pass you cannot begin to comprehend the magnitude of skiing options. There is nothing remotely like it in the States. You can access great terrain right from the top or drive a few minutes in either direction to countless other areas. Just stop at the avalanche center next to the motel every morning and get the latest avi info. No need to carry a huge pack into the hut. A shower and great food every night, a bar, and the price is pretty cheap. I have run into guys staying in their truck for days in the motel parking lot just to do the skiing.
If you want options it is only about an hour down the Pass to the Kicking Horse Resort. 4,000 vertical and no crowds, plus you can ski off the area and then back on again to catch a lift. An hour down the other side is Revelstoke, which has cat skiing at the future site of Mt. McKenzie (6,000 vert).
If you just ski the Pass for a week you will not begin to scratch the suface of the skiable terrain. There is a guide book but I do not remember the name. I borrowed a friend's copy who has been there many times.
I have nothing against hut trips, but I'm into it for the skiing and don't "rough it" just for the sake of doing it. You will have no trouble skiing untracked lines for a week at Rogers, and you don't need to hike to a hut to do it.
