West Jet has a $69 seat sale on right now. Hit up a hostel and you're set dude. Conditions will still be shit for the next month or 2 but keep your eye on the sales and you can easily come out west for some sick riding. That's how I do my Whistler trips. Cheep rooms in Van and then hit up the snow bus.

Maybe $69 for you since you're a lot closer, but for me it's $149 each way right now which is a decent deal as well. But unfortunatly I can't take any more time off. I'm still waiting for Westjet to have a 50% off seat sale for my Banff trip in Febuary.
