Ever since I became financially secure (I am 40), I have been pigging out on snowboard gear. For years I couldn't afford it and just stayed away. Now I cannot get enough. Started last year after a 10-11 year hiatus. Bet you I have spent at least 7500 on gear, passes and base lodge food for my daughter and I since January of last year. Pretty much have everything I need now. But if I see a Cobra on sale in February, just might pull the trigger. Its excessive, but it is a passion and I am hopelessly addicted. Have her in a snowboard lesson this Sunday with her girlfriend...there goes another 80 bucks plus 40 on beer and food for the dads. I chose snow instead of hot vacations. That money is my travel budget.
