Talking Total $ spent on learning to snowboard.....

6 Month Condo Rental - $6,600
Utilities for said condo - $1,500
Food and Gas to and from for the 6 months - $3,600
Season passes for hubby and myself - $1,200

My 48 year old father still snowboards with me, and he hard charges it. Never too late to kick ass.

Well, I've spent considerably less.

Family season's pass $800 / yr
Gas (when we owned the truck) $20/trip x 40 per year
Equipment & clothing purchases, average maybe $500-$600 / yr

As 'hobbies' go, for a family activity that's pretty cheap.

6 months condo rental...
i wish i could stay at the mountain for 6 months. but sadly if i did i would be wasting money on 6 months rent on my actual apartment.
lucky you OP, i'm sure you had a great time.
on learning to snowboard at 50. great accomplishment.

learning? still learning and will never stop, so $$$ is perpetual in that sense. I first got started during some time off while on work travel in Denver.

Lodging - free
Food and transportation - free
2 days worth of lessons - $200
jacket, pants, goggles, gloves - $300

Since then, I've bought my own boots, bindings, board, bag for $600 and new jacket and pants for Christmas
