Default How much do you spend every season?

Hey all, I just thought it would be interesting to see how much peeps spend on average every season to feed the stoke. It would be interesting to also note where your main place of residency is as well and # of days on snow. We'll probably see us East Coasters spending quite a bit more as we know most of you west coasters probably camp under the gondola during peak season to get to the goods...hehe :P This will also probably stimulate jealously for those that get to ride 50+ days a year also .

I think we should keep this post solely to tickets, transportation, and accommodations (if applicable) as we know there are plenty of gearheads and alcoholics on here that may skew the #s

I guess I'll start:

Cost: $3300 (pending 1 last hurrah) :'( :@
Trips: 1 wk Revy/KH, 1 wk Whistler (pending), 1 weekend trip to Iceface, bunch of local outings
Total days on snow: 19 days (projected)
Residency: ONT Canada

Gosh...i need to move...

If i see someone post 100 days and spend $100 bucks im closing this thread

Default How much do you spend every season?

So far:

~2250 on tickets / pass and lessons.

~750 on condos/ hotels.

~at least 500 on food / drinks probably much higher.

~ 1100 on gas.

Little over 30 days from Calgary.

This thread is depressing

Yup....depressing.

Although my numbers are small because I am a complete dirtbag...

$1300 lift tickets/pass (loyalty cards and cheap tickets off kijiji)

$300accommodation (FYI done get a kitchenette at Mary's Motel in Golden they are garbage...go for the regular room with mic and fridge and bring a crock pot!)

$300 on food and booze (Old Mil & Fireball, oatmeal, sandwiches, and crock pot chilli)

$200 on gas

the costs are low cause I always organize groups of 3 or 4 and will stay in a dump.

Im at 26 days outa calgary.

570/300 - Passes (Epic pass and Terry Peak, SD)
3000~ - 2 - 1 1/2 week trips (UT) (AZ, Lake Tahoe)
1500~ - getting to the local mtns from Denver since the start of the season.
1500 on new gear since I'm a gear whore.

If we're including booze/weed and food I really can't guess. A lot higher than the rest I assume.


Rough estimates, I honestly do not keep track of my spending, I do that enough at work! I always have leftover and just make a point to put X amount towards savings/investments.


From Golden Colorado, ride 3-5 times a week normally. I'm a PM so my job is pretty flexible if the project is going well. Some years are great some suck. Last year I got maybe 20 days, this year I'm well past 50 just counting Key/Breck/Abasin

30 days so far for me with another 5 coming this week. 40 should be easy to hit but I'm still hoping for 50 for the year!!!

Season pass to Kicking Horse, Fernie, Kimberley, Nakiska and Lake Louise: $1300 incl tax

Transportation: Work truck

Accommodations: Probably at about $1000 for the year so far, it's all fun stuff...

Add in food and gear and I'm usually around $4000-5000 a season. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Best investment I make every year...

For myself? $659 epic pass, $250 new smokin board. $200 new boots. $250 bindings.. Pretty much annual. 127 days so far. 85 on vail.

Family, add mine for my wife too.... She usually gets some new clothes too so add $500 to that. She is at 35 days.

Son gets usually 3-5 boards a year, 3 new bindings, 3 new boots. Who knows how many outfits. Boards might total $800, bindings $500, boots$500 and new outfits about $500. His coaching is $5000. Travel for comps so far about $3000. He has won about $10k this year in cash/prizes. First year of competing. It almost pays for itself now, maybe in a couple more years. He's at 145 days or so since October

Spending endless hours/days/months on the mountains as a family is really all that matters and is priceless....
