Gas is my biggest expense. Just another reason why I'm glad I drive a Geo.

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.
How'd you get to Utah for $375? How long were you there?

I get a season's pass to a local mountain for $275. My insurance company gives me a Health Benefit kickback for $200. So I literally spend $75 on it.

The kicker is that it gives me 50% of on a bunch of mountains in VT (Okemo, Jay Peake etc).

When you work it out that way, it's awesome.

I bought a spring pass at Killington for $200. All you can ski after March 15. Normally an ok deal, but this year it's been fantastic. I'm at $25 per day and hope to get below $15.

On trips alone this season, I must have spent around $3000-$3500. Heavenly, Brian Head, Heavenly/Northstar, and Breckenridge ate up my wallet... but I wouldn't have it any other way!
