Weekend Adventure!

I'm going skiing on Saturday! I haven't been in six years... a very long time, especially since I started skiing at age two! I have all of my winter clothing and my ski boots, so I will just have to rent skis and poles. I'm going with a group of friends and I know it'll be a lot of fun, even though I'm sure I'll just be on the green runs doing the pizza stance... until I get back into being a tree-skier! ;) Below is my breakdown of expected costs:



Ski Rental: $23
Lift Ticket: $66
Lunch: $15
Gas (my share) : $15

Total: $119

I forgot how expensive skiing is! I do own skis, but they're at my parents' house. (I was never really interested in skiing down in California during college, plus I keep forgetting to bring them back here with me when I go home.) I know I could save some money by bringing my own lunch... but there's something to be said for an awesome, hot meal at the lodge during a day of skiing! :)

Do you have any exciting weekend plans? Are you a skier/snowboarder, and how long have you been doing it?

Ooh have lots of fun! I used to ski (probably from age 6-13), then took a long break from the snow. Got into snowboarding 5 years ago and have been in love ever since! I always tell myself that I'd like to try skiing again, but it's hard to get the motivation, especially since I already have all the EXPENSIVE snowboarding gear!

I'm going to try and make my way over to Bear Mtn or Mt. High next week. Hopefully the snow will be good!

Ooh, I've been snowboarding but never skiing - really want to though! I will be skiing next time we go to the snow - hopefully this winter. I think I might be better at it than boarding, but we'll see.
