Don't go to big name mountains. Plenty of places to go that won't break the bank.

Plus, if you're taking your kids then you're just paying for nothing. Your 7 yo isn't going to send it off the gondola at Mammoth. There's places that are much cheaper where they will have just as much fun.

I was a 7 year old absolute hellion on the mountain. Heavenly ski team as a grom. Grew up with a cabin on ski run. My parents and their best friends threw us groms on the mountains at a young age.
Dad recently told me it was actually super affordable , except the dam lunches on the mountains.

. if you have a place to stay and buy a pass it’s still affordable.
‘if you have these two things you probably have a gear hook up too.

I told the wife if she dies I'm going to live out of a suitcase and chase powder around the world until I can't and then go out in a drug fueled suicidal orgy of self indulgence.

Unfortunately she's probably healthier than I am. :mad:
