Ski/Snowboard Trips...

So who is going on a ski or snowboard trip this year?

Let's here where you are going and how much it set you back. I'm curious to see what deals are out there right now.

I'm planning a trip to Tahoe right now, last week of January, give or take a few days.

I generally take a trip back West the last days of February and tear it up. I am up for a change this year, just continuing the trend.

Jan. 25-31, this may change slightly with the inclusion of a day or two before. Nothing is set in stone, especially who I'm going with, procrastinators all of them. I have the hotel reserved, really nice place in Incline Village. I get very discounted rates. Plus deals on food. I get a discount on rental cars too, but not much. Gotta save money somewhere, lift tickets are fuckin' ridiculous.

Lake Tahoe trip, end of December, one week. Rented a cottage with friends by the Sunnyside. $2625 for two bedroom house (splitting it three ways). Plus some cost of car rental and $534 for the plane ticket. Not the cheapest trip by any means, but should be pretty fucking awesome

Going to Copper late Dec to early Jan. Season tickets were $3xx which actually comes out cheaper than buying a ticket for each day and staying at my sister's condo for the trip. can't wait

hit up devils head last year and had to drive 500 miles back to college with a broken wrist. totally worth it though

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.

Are you guys aware that the Canadian dollar is near worthless again? That Canada has the only certified double black diamond run in North America? That the interior of British Columbia, is a powder hounds wet dream? That lift lines are non hesitant? Ricky is heading to BC

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

i have always wanted to go to whistler-blackcomb. i hear that when that place is on, there is nothing like it.

so are you telling me corbet's at JH is not a double black because it is not certified?

Whistler is the best place I have boarded, hands down. I even went in the spring when the lower half of the mountain was slush.

This year i'm going to the UP in the end of december and Winter Park in Jan. Probably a few scattered trips to Wilmot, Devils Head, Cascade, and Sundown.
