As someone who has done a lot of US->Vancouver travel, here's a protip: Fly into Sea-Tac and then take the Quick Shuttle (http://www.quickcoach.com/) across the border ($40ish USD). You won't get dinged on airport international travel fees and you will have a lot more flight options. Just in case the international travel costs were going to factor in to anyone's attendance...
