So I keep researching prices and the more I look into it the more I think West Virginia is right for me. I haven't been to WV in 8 years or so and I have never been out west. I want to try going out west one day but I am on a budget and my girlfriend has never gone snow skiing before so I don't know if she would appreciate the difference between WV and out west. I was looking at Silvercreek on VRBO and their website and it looks like lodging for 3 nights (starting March 12) goes for around $450. Lift tickets for those dates are $79, $59 and $59. Rentals seem about the same at around $35 a day.My car could make it to WV and back for around $150. Lodging includes a small kitchen so we could bring groceries and save on breakfast and lunch (which I dont think we could do out west because we wouldn't have a car). Can anything out west come within $650 of this? Or do you have better suggestions for resorts within driving distance of Tampa FL?
- Driving to WV and back $150
- Lodging at Silvercreek $450
- Rental (for her) $105 (3days x $35)
- Lift tickets $400 ($79,59, 59 x 2)
- One night in a hotel Friday night on the way up $50
- $60 in groceries should hold us off for breakfast snacks and lunch
What else am I forgetting? Can anyone recommend anything better or somewhat within that price range? I checked tickets for Tampa-SLC and its about $480 each way for 2 people. Unless I find a airline sale I feel like nothing is going to come within range of skiing WV right? I would LOVE to go out west but it looks like that might have to be next year.
