Canada Ski Safari 2005/06

Apex, Big White, Silver Star, Sun Peaks (BC)

plus: Stevens Pass and Mt. Baker (WA)


December 12-18, 2005.  Seven of us went on a road trip through Washington and British Columbia, in three separate cars: Mike and Diane in one car, Kurt and Emilio in another, and Janet, Sheridan and Julie in another. The weather was calm, mostly sunny, ... but cold, preserving the snow magnificently.


We shared the cost of gas and lodging. The total cost per person for Kurt and Emilio turned out to be  $355 for 6 days and 6 nights, including all lodging, transportation and lift tickets. That's an average of only $59 per person per day! And it was even less expensive for the women's car, because all expenses were divided by 3.  The only additional expense was for food.  For comparison, note that on any average ski trip, you will probably spend $100 - $150 per person per day.


We skied a different area each day:  Steven Pass (WA), Apex, Big White, Silver Star, Sun Peaks (British Columbia), and Mt. Baker (WA).
