Default Coming from Louisiana to stay permantly and snowboard forever! How expensive is it?

Hi,

I'm looking to move from Louisiana to Utah so I can start snowboarding and eventually become an instructor. But I'm confused about resort prices, ski lift tickets and season passes. Do I really have to 50 bucks a day to use a chair lift for that day if I want to snowboard? Is that in addition to my season pass to that resort? How do people get by if they want to do this all day? (I get a disability check so I don't have to work but I can if I want).

Is snowboarding everyday financially feasible? Thanks, Craig

If you have such a disability that you can't work then how can you snowboard that seems like you don't new that check if you can board you can work



And yes you have to have a season pass and 50 bucked each ride

So that makes it even worse? Do they have passes that get me on the mountain and unlimited use of the chair lift? I mean, you'll finish a run in a few minutes down a mountain right?

no. a season pass just lets you park in the parking lot. $50 each time up the lift. you pay the liftie as you get on.
