its cheaper for this period of time. Plus I hate being at the mercy of others. I have never flown anywhere to go skiing.....yet.
split between 2 people
Gas - 600
lodging for one night - 60
660 bucks total
flying for 2 people
plane tickets - 1200
parking at airport for 3 weeks - 300
SUV car rental for 3 weeks - 840
flying would be 2340 dollars we saved roughly 1680 dollars by driving.
Also I couldnt possible carry 4 pairs of skis on the plane with me, let alone clothes/gear for 3 weeks of skiing. There is no chance of lost gear while driving, compared to flying were people lose their gear all the time. I also will never have to leave a day before a storm is coming because my car leaves SLC whenever I want.
Put it like this my and my buddy erik will do 3 weeks in SLC for about 1500 bucksfor everything travel, tickets, food .
