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.
