    Who obtained the best Cost/Day ratio this season?

    For those of you with season passes, I am curious if you did the math on the cost per day for this season. I always love to think about how great it is to be paying under $20 a day at some point in the season. It just makes skiing open to close feel even sweeter at that point. I've always wanted to keep track of how many runs I do per day and then run the cost out even further to a $/run figure. Or even a $/vertical feet or something fancy like that.

    I got 29 days out of my pass at Sugarbush that I paid $350 for (including tax). So that works out to $12.07 per day. Even days where it rained the whole time and only like a dozen trails were open were totally worth that price! Just curious how low some people have gotten that figure.



    And yeah, I enjoy math so that's why I am weird and constantly think about that crap haha.

    I have a free season pass so 0 per day. But I skied a lot of other places that I paid for (never window price) so...

    I've been tracking cost/day since the 11-12 season. I do it also to see what my season length is (start to finish), provide some memories as when i keep the dates in a sheet it's easier to remember back on particular days. I also like to see how many different mtns I've been to each season.

    11-12 $19.31/day 24 days 11 mtns
    12-13 $20.09/day 16 days 11 mtns
    13-14 $21.79/day 25 days 15 mtns
    14-15 $19.77/day 36 days 20 mtns
    15-16 $19.31/day 25 days 12 mtns
    16-17 $17.12/day 48 days 14 mtns

    I have 2-3 more days of skiing this coming wknd which will get me at or just above 50 days and just under $17/day.
    Having the $249 Ragged season pass helped a lot as I got 19 days on that pass. Joining the CM Adult Race League also helped the cost/day as that was $149 for 9 night sessions.

    I'm also getting some "free" days this spring on my 17-18 Peaks pass.

    Mine will most likely be in the $12-13 range per day for my Sugarbush pass. I'm hoping to hit somewhere in the mid 40s for number of days and the pass was $500 before tax from what I remember.

    I'm into this season $499 for my pass, $20 BW ticket, 3 canned goods and 1 four pack of Stoneface IPA.

    42 days in, so as of today my lift ticket cost is $12.36 + a spoonful of corn and a gulp of IPA per outing.

    i did pretty good this year

    max pass ($530 after a few referrals) + ski vt 5 pack ($205) + one liftopia day at jay for $40 = $775

    45 days of skiing so far, will probably eke out 2-3 more - $775/47 = $16.48

    Considering I average only about 20 days per year, this year was my lowest average cost per day since I started tracking. I spent $599 on max Pass and that's it. 20 days makes it $29.95 per day, I also track runs and at 424 for the year it works out to $1.41 per run

    my tracking history
    16/17-20 days-29.95/day-1.41/run
    15/16-15 days-46.60/day-2.23/run
    14/15-22 days-35.31/day-1.69/run
    13/14-20 days-38.99/day-1.91/run
    12/13-24 days-37.21/day-1.96/run
    11/12-18 days-41.40/day-2.07/run
    10/11-22 days-30.93/day-1.56/run

    Tahoe jacked up my average, but I didn't pay to ski or travel to Telluride. Averaged probably $40/day which would be more like $30/day if I only skied Northeast. Content with those numbers for the freedom to ski a variety of places on short notice.

    However if we figure gas into the equation I start doing a lot better-- I have a company gas card with no restrictions

    Jay peak adult family pass - early bird at 649$

    48 days so far - 13.52$ per day. Should get at least 6 more days, so this should go down to 12.02$ per day.

    Haha figuring other expenses into the equation makes it way too complicated. Sure those numbers are important for a full budget structure to try to find a truly frugal solution to skiing. But then its comparing apples to oranges.
