picked up a pair of last years demo skis for me: 172cm dynastar legend sultan's with look bindings....$400

got the wife a pair of 151cm volkl attiva estrella's with marker bindings...$300

also paid $100 for emma's season's pass, another $699 for the wifes (mine is free, and zoe still skis free this year and next)

a big outlay for us.....but priceless in time spent with the kids

    The big $$ on ski equipment certainly explains the PBR! Seriously though, have fun skiing with the family!
    Do you guys have much snow? It is barren here in UT.

    all of the equipment is last years....skis were demos...no way we can buy new, and most of that $$ was christmas/birthday money

    kids jackets were bought summer sales.....60-70% off

    i get a free pass.....so essentially the passes for my wife and i ski for the year on $700 ($59 a day for just a ticket, so....)

    emma got christmas money to pay for her $99 pass (all maine honor roll students get a pass for $99 K-12, kids 6 & under always free)

    so, in essence i actually am drinking $2.00 PBR's DESPITE the fact that i got all that, not because of it! lol

    Great pics. You put sunblock them? They look like they got a lot of sun on nose and cheeks.

    Looks to me like it was worth it all.
