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

John Collinson has made this kind of turn in the Wasatch over and over again - but are we coming to a point where the future of skiing in Utah is at risk? | Jeff Cricco/TGR photo. Imagine this: you sit in immovable traffic, waiting to go skiing. You sip your cooling coffee, take a bite of your local on-the-way coffee shop burrito, and curse both the snow and the traffic gods for not blessing you with either plentiful snow or clear passage. Your car idles as you turn up the radio and
