Epic Proportions

Now THIS entry is not at all about being in the moment ... not at all about enjoying each moment for what it has to offer. Instead, THIS entry is about the crass economics of skiing.

Let me say that skiing is an expensive sport. It is especially expensive when you do it as most of us do, one week at a time. But this month's residence in Colorado has given us the chance to take advantage of the coveted Epic Ski Pass (which we purchased before 11/15/08). This pass gives you unlimited access to 5 nearby ski areas. Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Arapaho Basin and Keystone.

So we have been keeping a little tally of our daily skiing and dividing it into the price of our Epic Pass. The more we ski, the more value we gain from our little ski pass.

Here is our total at the end of week #1



Cost per day

Cost per run




$ 115.80

$ 16.08




$ 115.80

$ 26.32
