How much you spend on snowboarding/skiing each season?
 
I am wondering if I should stick with my local hill that I have a pass for the remainders of the season or fork out extra money to go for more trips to the real mountains...I already did 2 trips this season...

I am not rich, but I can afford if I really want to...but just wondering how much I should spoil myself.

I don't even want to know any more. Probably my entire income when it boils down to it..... Lol

Nothing good can come of this poll :)

$$ is not the issue then… go for it… but after two trips IMO pound your mountain the rest of this year and use money saved for three trips next year.

My plan is 60 days in Colorado next year… The rest of this year use my two season passes.

As far as trips are concerned, if you want to take more, and can afford it, why not? Life is short, no point waiting for a better time than now.

Personally, I don't spend a whole lot on snowboarding, but I went on quite a few trips last year that were just not snowboarding related. The way I see it, you can never travel too much. Whether you travel for snowboarding, scuba diving, motorcycle riding, mountain climbing, or even just old fashioned sight seeing and sun bathing - it's all good, the more the better :yahoo: Whatever tickles your fancy!

It doesnt matter how much OTHERS spend. All that matters is how much YOU are willing to spend (ie how much is it worth to you). In my case it's even more complicated because i have family.....

Some people spend their $ on hookers and blow, others save it for when they're 80.... it's up to you really. But the math never makes sense.

I don't even want to know, so I can't vote on the poll. My entire meagre income and then some, when it comes to that... if you include the season pass and lodging, then yeah...a lot (for) me, and it will be a lot more when I have a real job like a normal person and no dumb deadlines at the end of the season (I still went on the weekends, hehe). I hate still being in school...

As for what you should do, only you know that ;) If you have a season pass at your local hill and only went twice, I would say, try to go as much as to make the pass worth it, at least break even. If you're having a bad season over there (no snow... like here =/) and you feel like you're going crazy and need to get out and see some pow, then by all means. If you can afford it, then why not?

Well I like to subscribe to this type of thinking, until I looked at the damage my wife does/did on her credit cards justified by my (necessity) spending. Ouch.

Edit: add splitboarding and it almost doubles.

My problem is how many boards do I need. Answer just ONE more…..:yahoo:
