Re: How much do you spend every season?

My 13 days this season cost me the equivalent of around $4000 - no new gear either. That's how it goes when you live in a country with no mountains.

I'm refusing to do the math. The local mountain where I have my $199 free weekday pass is about 210 miles round trip. I did like 15 days there. My car only takes super which is abour $4.20/gal. So maybe $45 on gas each trip depending on how fast I drive. Not to mention food or dinner afterwards.

I went to utah for around 375. Brighton, Snowbird and Park City. Forgot how much more lift tickets were out on the big mountains. Didnt even do the math for the drinking and eating at the resorts.

Did a trip to Tahoe and rode Heavenly for 4 days but only paid $350 for those 4 tickets. But it was a short notice trip and the airfare was a bit pricey. So total spent was a little over 2k with food,hotel,car rental, airfare etc...

It's exponentially cheaper when you live near a real mountain....makes me so jelly of you other guys. And I only did 17 days so far.

But, it's so worth it. Once the snow is gone I'm sad all over again and hope for next season.

Hotels: 4000
Food/Drinks: $7500
Passes: $3800
Gear this year: $4000
Misc: $2000

...so apx 20k after the whole smoke is over, but that is taking into account both my GF and I. Seemed to be about the same as last year without trying to be more or less.

Eating out and drinking wine is almost half the reason we enjoy travelling. Half of our boarding is done travelling so we always eat out and drink (to much). It would certainly be the smart place to cut.

Between gas, trips, food, gear, lift tickets, and my season pass to the local southern PA mountains, I don't dare venture a guess. Although I will say that whatever the cost is, in my opinion, it is worth every damn penny and I will continue to spend it as long as I am breathing. Next year will be a bit less costly though as I joined Ski Patrol and now get my season pass and food for free.

I am currently at 39 days with a few more left to go, and that includes time lost due to a separated shoulder. It has been an awesome season, and I am already looking forward to next year. First though, the shoulder healed enough to ride comfortably so it is time for Park City at the end of next week!

Before moving to the mtns a couple years ago we would spend 20-30k a year in travel/lodging for snowboard trips too. It's cheaper to live in the mtns, just gotta find a mtn close to a place that has a job for you.
