Unfortunately, the cheapest way to get anywhere is to take the bus, which will won't be much fun but it will save you about a $1000 in transportation costs. Greyhound goes pretty much anywhere, and it will cost just under $200 to get from lake placid to salt lake, and about $180 to get from salt lake city to calgary. It's about a three day bus ride both trips. I would recommend staying at the best western in Park City, it is pretty inexpensive and very close the the track and the the four points sheraton in Calgary is right across the street from the track.
