season pass somewhere like $500-750 depending on what one(s) I get

random day lift tickets to resorts not covered by pass(es) ~$100

airfare $250

lodging $1000 (usually includes one 4-6 day trip out west and several overnight/weekend trips closer to home)

Gear $500-700

I'm riding somewhere like ~35 days per season.

Gas & incidentals... no idea. Let's say $700 just to keep it nice and even.


Fuck me. That works out to $100 per day, and most of these "days" are on shitty midwest hills. Well, the obvious way to save money is to not buy two new pairs of pants in February and a new board in March...

$150 on tickets in PA, free pass for teaching in Maine, $400 in gas to get everywhere, $0 on lodging (hotels are too expensive, if I don't have a couch or friend to crash with, I probably wouldn't go.)

35 days in... just rode what will probably be my last day on Monday... that is about $16 per day, + 15 to 30 a day for food/drink.

How many days do you get on that ski lease for $1750? Sounds cheap as hell.

This season will be just over $1000 for me, for 7 days of board time...

Living this far from CO sucks.

unlimited days from Nov4th-June4th. I can go up when ever I want.

I also get 14 guest days. I share a condo 2+2 condo with 7 other people. So Im often sleeping in a bunk bed in a loft with other people (I know them all, though) Weekends it's not unusual for 6-10 people to be packed in. But I do 99% of my riding weekdays and rarely see my fellow condo mates.


For example this week Im going up sunday night and coming home wed. There will only be one other person up there...but probably be a filthy mess from weekend traffic lol.

We have an email list where we all talk about who is going up when and where we're sleeping. It's sometims a bit drama filled in regards to cleaning and drinking other people beer but yeah, it's cheap. One person owns it and the rest of us sign a lease with him. We're mostly all buddies. Makes for Good times!!

Just about $4300 total so far and I leave for Utah in just over a week.

$570 Pass
$600 Gas (mountain and back is $30 worth)
$100 Lesson (got another free one cuz I bitched)
$200 Beer, Booze, Food at the lodge (probably more)

The remaining $2800+ is gear...

I'll have 20 days come Sunday. I hope to get 24 total counting Utah but that might be a stretch. I won't even count the trip to Utah (visiting family and shit) but probably at least another $500 - $600 in passes, food, & gas.

So, let's just call it ~$5000 for 24 days. Christ don't tell my wife!...

I live in Northern BC.

*Fuck everytime I go to click post I think of some other shit I bought and up the numbers!... I give... Post...

Season Pass - 469
Gas - maybe 200
Food/Drink - no idea - would have done that whether I was riding or not.
Heavenly lift tix (2 days) - 150
New boots early season price - 95
Total...just under a grand.

Getting to ride 15 Days without much of a fight from the wife - Priceless

For everything else, theres Mastercard.

Got my earlybird 2013/14 full season pass for $299 two weeks ago. It will cost $599 if I wait till then. $20 round trip gas to the resort plus $15 food and coffee money multiplied by at least 10 trips. That's $650 for the whole next season.
