Thanks, Marc Ecko
crgildart, your powers of frugality are astounding!
I'm a lunch packer, so me and the gal save there...but I'm a sucker for lodge beer so that takes a bit out. Last spring at Snowbird I met a dude on the lift who had an amazing system. In the spring when it never got cold enough to freeze beer (which has a lower freezing point than water...thanks solutes!) he said he stashed bottles and cans in hedges and tree roots all around the mountain, marked them on a map, and then would pick them up and drink them towards the end of each day. Now, I certainly wouldn't condone such behavior, and lord help him if I find out he forgot a bottle and was littering on a mountain, but that's pretty friggin' hilarious! And ballsy!
I'm not a local, so I have almost no chance of being super cheap. But I still get 10% off lift tickets with a promotions package from my old job.
Flight to SLC: $300
Staying at friend's for four days: $50 in groceries and beer.
Lift tix: $150
::sigh:: There has to be a cheaper way to do this. Guess I could buy some skins and start hiking my way up the mountain! Ah, screw it, I just got promoted anyway!
