The True Cost of Skiing in 2018-2019


Use fullscreen for optimal viewing of data on the true cost of skiing.


Skiing isn’t cheap. Gear is expensive, lift tickets are exorbitant, and the price of a cheeseburger at the summit lodge feels like downright highway robbery. With that in mind, hometogo.com did some research into the true price of skiing in North America, assembling up-to-date price data for 50 of the continent’s biggest resorts. In addition to lift tickets, they dug up information on the price of rental gear, lunch, and local accommodations.

But, how exactly did they calculate these prices? What gear are we renting, and what constitutes lunch? Kindly, the sleuths over at hometogo.com explain their precise methodology, which is as follows:

Lift tickets: A single adult lift ticket on a non-peak Saturday

Rental gear: A single set of intermediate skis, boots, and poles

Lunch: A cheeseburger with fries and a soda at a midrange on-slope restaurant

Accommodation: The average price per person to stay in a 4-person vacation rental found on HomeToGo close to the resort, for one night between the dates of November 17, 2018 and April 20, 2019

I really love this sports. It is risky but I think it worth to try. Actually, I love outdoor an indoor games. When outdoor what I usually did is trekking, climbing, etc. Inside, I usually play puzzle games as my past time.

​Looking Back on The 2021 Season At Jackson Hole

Kai Jones bidding adieu to yet another epic season at our home mountain Jackson Hole! | Nic Alegre photo. Closing day is always a bittersweet one, meaning our favorite time of year has come to an end yet again. However, we have to say, the ’20-’21 season at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was certainly one to remember. Like at many other ski resorts, it was the season that almost didn’t happen, thanks to the global Covid-19 pandemic. But, thanks to the hard work of our friends at the resort,

Listen Now: Part 2 of Kent Kreitler’s Story on The Powell Movement

Kent Kreitler is a living legend and TGR Hall of Famer. He’ll be remembered as the skier who helped bring tricks to the backcountry, but he’s so much more than that.

In part two of the podcast on The Powell Movement, he talks about the Tahoe years, filming with the Standard Crew, stomping tricks in the terrain park on 215cm skis, the X Games, sponsors, money,
