Im going to Whistler/Seattle. Would it be cheaper to fly to Seattle and then drive to Whistler and back to Seattle for the flight home. Or fly to Vancouver/ Whistler and drive to Seattle and then back to Vancouver for the flight home? Home is NYC. Just wondering if there are any hidden cost or taxes when flying or renting a car in Vancouver?

which is cheaper?
Flying to vancouver is like $200 extra at least when I priced it out. Even whistler's website tells you save money by telling you to flying into SEA and then get up to vancouver via public transportation (or car).
If you have multiple people going to SEA is going to be cheaper.
You can also consider taking public transportation or shuttles to save money on the rentals. Especially if all you're doing is flying to vancouver to go to whistler, versus stopping somewhere along the way.
It's not like prices are hidden. Just jump on a travel site and price out the flights. Then jump on a rental car site and price that out.
per my experience, the cheapest flying to Vancouver, I had paid $300 round trip from bay area (p.s. I had bought the tickets back in September), I think currently bay area to Vancouver is $412+
The cheapest flight to Seattle was $186 round trip, so ....
By the way, you would still need to figure out how to get from Vancouver to Whistler (bus is around $79 per person, car could be cheaper if more than 1 person traveling), so you might as well rent a car from Seattle all the way to Whistler.
[as far as I know... and I could be wrong, every time when you cross a board... airline pays for foreign airspace/air controllers, and of course passes the cost to passengers]
What a freaking joke. $30 a night to park at the hotel you're staying at?
yeah.. the parking is $$$, the fancier hotel you would choose, the fancier will be your parking bill.
for example: http://www.aavawhistlerhotel.com/ charges $19 per night, where 4-season is $30 (never mind the mandatory resort fee). So, after calculating the parking cost plus rent of the car, flying to Vancouver and taking a bus is not such a bad idea after all.
They charge that much at the Marriott next to my office in Denver so its not suprising
It's still gouging. How can an open parking lot a few blocks away charge $6 per day but the hotel charges $20+? They have a captive audience that they gouge, that's how. Plus most people staying at high end hotels either don't care about the $$ or their work is paying for it (meaning they don't care about the $$)
FYI If you end up renting a car in Vancouver do not rent from budget as they have been in the news for ripping people off.
Whistler has free day parking and they seem to let cars park there overnight. They also have "pay" day parking that is closer to the lifts.
Really? I've not seen that. Where?
I don't remember the lot number but it is beside a pay lot and it is also beside the road that takes you up to the Blackcomb Gondola mid terminal parking lot. I stayed in the above mentioned lot overnight in my truck camper last April and no one bothered me.
I thought you meant parking fees at the resort and not at the hotel.... Just how much is whistler
