i routinely drive about 8 hours to get up to the UP for semi-decent riding on weekends. the furthest i've driven boarding related was driving home from denver to milwaukee. 15.5 hours give or take a little bit.

I routinely drive 1 hour 10 minutes good weather and no traffic for 7 hours of riding...usually leave at 7am and back home by 5:30 for a nicely paced day. Anything further...probably not...cause I don't have too.

My nearest mountains are a 3.5 hour drive each way (if all goes smoothly)... and 60 bucks in tolls each way (no, I'm not shitting you). This is why I've only been getting ~15 days per season.

For a day. About 3 hours. That is what it takes me to get down to Monarch Pass and that is about as far as I am willing to drive for a day. For an extended trip 5-8 hours driving, after that it's time to hop a plane.
