the drive is beautiful, the highway got redone for the olympics. If I drive aggressively, I'll make vancouver - whistler in less than 1hr 15 minutes in summer, otherwise expect a good 2hrs in snow, its roughly 300km round trip… No cheap hotels that I know of, most of the hotels right now are 180$+ a night .. you might wanna stay in squamish, might be cheaper but you're still an hour away. If you drive a gas guzzler, gas will be around 40/50$ there and back, I drive a TDI and its about 20$ …
best bet is to wake up around 5am, drive early to skip traffic on lions gate, and you'll get there by 8am, suit up and be on the lift by 9. Board all day, the mountain closes at 3:30. Drive home, and you should be back in Van around 5, to hit traffic, and then expect another 2 hrs of that, and be home by 7. Go to bed, repeat.
cypress, seymour, grouse, is close by, day tix are around 45$+, most offer night riding for cheaper and are open till 10pm …
hope that helps.
