By the time you pay for travel and lodging, you've spent 20 years of epic passes already. Probably more.

That would drive me crazy, because if I paid to visit each mountain, I would want to stay for a few days at least... Now you have to worry that 10 others are doing 1 mountain per day...

By the time you pay for travel to and lodging at Courchevel alone you've spent close to 20 years in epic passes.

Can you imagine how pissed off the 11th place finisher would be after all that time and money?

Fuck lodging! If one town has one resort only, fly/bus in and out the same day, take the redeye to the next resort. Stay in hostels. The key would be getting to resorts on their opening days.

I wish the resorts in AB/BC did something like this for the Rocky Mountain Passport. I'd be on that shit!

No. And the few that are there mostly charge as much as mid-range hotels. You'd hardly find a $25/night bunk bed. Not easy to "redeye" it from one resort to another either. It's not like most of them are within short driving distance from the nearest major international airport.

We'll it will be 3 of us. $1050/ticket/ea to Zurich. 10 days with a rental VAN and sleeping bags $700. The resorts are covered on epic pass so no lift tickets. For about $50/day eating poor, I'm gonna budget $1000 for food. That's under $5000. Right now I pay $2070/ year for my passes.

In 3 years I'll more than pay for the trip and have many more years of epic passes ahead of me for 3 people. Plus I get the fun of the trip and experience of the euro riding.

Should be fun.
