Default Thread where a guy said he is spending 2000 on a trip

And isn't a poser etc etc. Seriously, that is a shit load of cash. I go to the Alps, huge ass mountains and miles of lifts, and the house we stay at has a sauna and is clean. We pay 500 dollars for 8 days, including lift, lodging and food. We don't party, we go to ride. Ok, beer will run up to another 50 bucks. Instructors save 50 bucks on the lift tickets for the 8 days, normal people don't.

What does everyone spend for, lets say 8 days. - because 2000 sound like omg richboy is going snowboarding... (to me)

Not that out of line, I dropped 1500 last year to go to Breck for a week. Where do you go for 500/8days? That's pretty cheap.

especially if you figure in airfare and everything, $2000 isn't that tough to hit for 8 days

Lol 500 dollars will barely get you 8 days lift tickets here @ Meadows.
Figure another 100 bucks a night minimum to stay at a local place on the mountain.

Thats JUST to ski, add on X amount of cost in flying here or gas money and you can easily hit over 2k.

Random trip for a week...

Airfare..........$400 (about average)
Lift Tickets.....$250 (4 days at $65 a day)
Lodging..........$400 (a cabin split a number of ways)
Food at mountain.$100
food away........$200
Booze............$200

that's $1500 or so and that's not looking at it expensively, most resort hotels go for $250+ a night

Op is lost.

Without a season pass how do you go anywhere for under 4 for 8 days? Leaving him a hundred left. For plane, hotel, food, transit to mountain, etc.

Good luck. Maybe 500 for 8 days at ur local.

I don't think I could even do my local hill for 8 days on 500.

Cheap motel in Iowa 50/night X 8= 400
Lift tickets 35/day X 8= 280
Even if I drove back and forth
gas to and from 25/day X 8 = 200

I still want to know where the OP goes for that amount, and a break down of said trip.

the OP I think is the poser living with mommy and daddy. I go about 4-5 weeks a year up to colorado. My 16 day stent in december in a house for of us (me, my wife, 2 kids, 2 kid friends and a friend of mine and his girlfriend)is about $3500 for the house alone. $58/day for lift tickets x 10 days is $580/per person. That means I spend about $2200 on lift tickets for me and my "crew". Not to mention the diesel I spend driving 13 hours each way to get there. I dont think thats too much money to do what my family and I love doing. Money is relative to the person spending it, if you make $15k a year then thats a shitload of money. If you make $150k a year, its not shit to spend on a vacation.

I called you a poser for a reason OP, just because someone has money doesnt make them a poser, it makes you jealous for talkin that shit about them.

FYI, I drove from San Antonio, TX up to Portland OR this past summer just to board for a week and send my kids off to the High cascades camp...... Does that make me more hardcore for taking off 2 weeks to drive up there and spending $10k to do that or does it make me a poser?

"We pay 500 dollars for 8 days, including lift, lodging and food." Where exactly do you find a deal that good? $500 "might" cover 8 days of lift tickets at a cheaper resort, OR the plane ticket, OR the food and possibly the rental car if you eat cheap, but not even lodging at most places. That's all before you spend money on new gear, clothes, and whatever at the mountain. $2K sounds right in the ballpark, IMO.
