You should goto tremblant on family day weekend.  I've stayed at ski in/ski out at tremblant for 3 nights and paid about $600 per person in Feb.  including accomodations, gas, lift, food, etc.

100 Days x 3$/gal x70 miles /27mpg= 777
2 season passes= 1000
2 boards~800
boots~200
New outerwear~500
Misc~500
On hill food= 0, I rather starve than pay those prices.
Oh crap I forgot my gear/pass=50  crap happens every year when you ride 100+)
ASSHOLE COPS= 50+  (depending on the year)
Summer boarding= 500-1500 (depends where I go)
Lose/ Broke/ Got water on my Ipod= 250 (I think I've been through at least one for every season)
Cell phone shtooked or lost=50

Total=4,677-5,677

I'm actually surprised it's not more.  One year I lost my keys had to have a lock smith come and make me a new key~ 300.  When I owned my WRX I got tons of speeding tickets and my insurance went up to like 500 a month. 

I've never had my gear stolen so that's saved me quite a bit because it never leaves my side.

You spent $1800 for only 3 days at Tremblant?  Can I assume the prices you quoted was for more than 1 person?  

The stuff I listed was for 1 person only.  I know it sounds like a lot of money but I'm probably going to get less than 30 days this season even with all those trips.  The local "hill" is not even worth going.  I actually spent sat/sun in town at a hill on a kicker I built.  I had more fun doing that than going to the crappy "hill" for which a lift cost $60 and takes 2 hours to get to.

yeah it's more like at least 3large and up..season pass, gas, food..then go to other resort(s) then cabin..then trip to tahoe..plane/lodging/lift tickets/rent a car/food/drinks etc..that adds up but all for fun! All worth it really. I know a couple who went to Switzerland just to board..and they're novice..how amazing was that?!

I wish I can do a trip like that one individual though..that's traveling the world almost just for snow! good for you bro! good for you

way too much, my pass only costs 300 and my trips to the local Mountain Creek only cost about 7.50 in gas, but I take a lot of weekend trips to VT and go on a couple vacation trips. If I only stayed local it would probably be around 400 total for the season ( I ride 4-5 days a week).

Season passes aren't cheap in Alberta.
 
I paid 659 for my early bird pass to Sunshine. Costs me about 15 dollars in gas to drive there each time, and will probably go out 20+ times...so 300.
 
I also bought a $40 Nakiska Iski Card, and a $99 Lake Louise Card.
 
So 1098 + 5% tax =
 
~$1152
 
Probably closer to $1500 when all things considered.
Snowboarding is god dam expensive, thank god I can get my gear for good prices at Sierrasnowboard.com........oh wait......Angry........I mean Trusnow.com where international shipping rates have increased by 60%, product prices increase by 20-50%, processing and shipping times increased by days.......
 
Yet somehow the customer service is gotten exponentially worse.

Not necessarily.  It depends on what where you are going and how long.

Here is my season so far.

Chile 9 days (5 days boarding) - $2000
Mammoth 5 days (4 days boarding) - $1200 
Vail/Aspen 5 days (4 days boarding) - $1500
Japan 2 weeks (8-9 days boarding) - $4000 est. (Planned for Feb)
Local stuff about $100 per day (2 days so far, estimate 5 this season) - $500

Total $9200

If I didn't go to Bahamas last week ($1100) I probably would have gone snowboarding.  

so I really don't think $11k is that absurd.


I can see your point, but at the same time, your average person doesn't take multiple crosscountry/mutliple country trips per season.

ya.  i agree most people won't spend $11k to go snowboarding.  Most people on this site don't even have $11k.  I think a good portion of the community here are students.

I dunno, probably around $8k?  But I'm buying for two as it's me and the spousal unit 80% of the time and we get 40+ days a year.

Spend about 50 dollars a trip. The amount of times I go a season varies greatly because of my hockey schedule.

Can't wait for college next year. 15$ season lift pass to a mountain of our chosing

I belong to a ski/snowboard club.  It's the only way we could afford to travel for boarding.  We are going by bus from Portland to Snoqualmie, Mission Ridge and Stevens Pass next weekend.  I will be spending $330 per person ($660 for me and my husband).  This includes the lift tickets for three days, transportation, and lodging for three nights with continental breakfasts.
 
It is a great way to meet some new people to ride with.  Most of the people in the club are my parents age and older (with a few younger people) and most of them are better on the slopes and can drink me under the table.

11k is up there but not absurd when you are travelling to snowboard.  We don't have the luxury of snowboarding near us so we have to travel to get anything decent.
 
Our 3 trips this year, not including dinky local hills:
 
Tremblant for 3 full days in Dec was about $1800 (drove there)
Searchmont for a couple of days in Feb will be about $500 (driving there)
Sun Peaks in March for 3 full days will be about $2600-2700 or so (flying there)
 
So with all the local stuff probably looking at about $5300 for my wife and I for the year, excluding equipment.
 
Call it an even $6000 with equipment purchases this year. 
 
/wish I lived in BC

when you factor all costs the bill runs pretty high.
 
 
But then that would not be fun to see,
 
so just double your seasons pass. and add whatever you spend at the bar.

Planning on spending around 3000-3500 this year...
Trip to japan and a trip to NZ maybe more if i decide to go to Canada at the end of the year. 
Strenuous savings ahead for me... :/

Are there public transports to and from most snow resort? Coz hiring a car will definitely kill my budget.

So far, a month of snowboarding would be about 3-5000 including accommodation, passes, food, etc

Where is OP? Also, are there any area or region that has better snow?

I'd say you're better off working as a bartender/waiter in a resort town. The money is much better, and you can work nights so you can ride days.

And, living in a town with a small (but steep) mountain is very nice. My pass was $325 and there are NEVER any lift lines.

Damn man 11k is absurd.

4-8 trips to snowshoe during the semester

$250 for a snowshoe season pass
~$15 for gas per trip ($60 split between 4 people)
~$30 for food/beer per trip
$20 for 2 nights per trip at the house the club rents (although being an officer this year I don't have to pay this)

Unfortunately I shtooked my knee up the first trip to snowshoe, so I didn't get to take my 2-3 trips to Mount Snow I normally do during winter break.

$790 for the club trip to CO, included Airfare, Busses, Housing, Lift tickets
$200 for food/beer while there cause I splurged while on vacation

So total this season, anywhere from 1400 - 1600, but that's only cause I went to CO from the east coast.

4-8 weekends at snowshoe this season would be 430-610, plus whatever I would have spent at Mount Snow, although that's normally with my dad so he ends up paying for most.

This is also just cause I'm at school.  As a "where should I go" type thing like your OP suggested, definitely not anywhere in the southeast, but that should be obvious.

are we talking semi-local (i.e. - driving) or taking a full on plane trip here?  big diff between the two.  i rarely fly for a boarding vacation so i'd say i spent way less than $500/season to hit up tahoe 6-10xs.
be talkin to ya

One or two lessons a month for two at $200 per person...

About 10 days per month in 4 trips = a little over $11,000 for the season is what I'm guessing... 
Plus HCSC for two = another $4,000 or so

Snowboarding is an expensive hobby for us, but it's so worth it!!!


$11,000 a year!? You must be overpaying.
I pay:
$250 for night club card
$150 for bus 6 times (with school)
$5 round trip for each trip up on my own (split between friends)
Bring my own food, leaving me at about $500 a year. Hope to move closer to the mountain to cut that by a lot.
Depends a lot though...I mean, if you go to Mammoth everytime, then you will be paying mounds of cash more than the person with the $300 season pass to heavenly.

so cheap for you guys..

lift pass for the day $99
to get the car on the mountain $35
petrol $ 60
then there is the food.. pretty expensive day

Gotta love Aussie prices, hey!

Full-Access Lift Pass: Around $105
Food: Around $10, depends if we get something from the supermarket on mountain or from the bakery at the base.
Return Bus to the mountain: $40
Petrol (if we drive): $15-$20 contribution
Resort Entry (if we drive): $10-$15 contribution.

So either way, around $150 a day. Thank god I don't rent my gear..! Season pass for this year will set me back between $750 and $1,100 depending on whether I get the tertiary or adult pass..!
