Ugh, I try not to think about it, going to hit 40 days when I go thurs and fri this week and planning on making several trips to Tuck's once the resorts finally close. Probably about 3 grand or so between a few trips season pass and gas. Another grand on some of the gear I bought this year. 4k or so this year.

Roughly 20-30 days - Say 25.
Season pass = $550
Accommodation = $100pn (cheaper if there is more of us)
Food = $30per day
Gas = $160 a trip

Holy crap, ~$5720. I split the gas/accommodation where I can but man thats crazy when you look at it in one go
Yea...this yr I've spent the most on boarding...and I was thinking to myself...how does everyone else do it?

The little ripper yet close to getting a sponsor? At first when you were listing out all the new gear every yr I thought u were joking. Then when I realized you weren't and i thought he was spoiled ...then you mentioned the prize money..and it became more justifiable...hah

It's only my second full season and early on someone told me "NEVER DO THE MATH!!!" I think he was right cuz on occasion I have & I really can't afford to be this irresponsible with my limited finances!

I don't want to have to face the realization that I can't afford to participate in this sport!! Denial!!! Not just a river in Egypt!!!

I budget $2000 a year for snowboarding, and each year I exceed that. Now that I think about it, I'd rather not think about it.

So far about 3000. And it will keep climbing as try to get to local dome as often as possible. Yeah actually I'd rather not think about it.
