The ultimate snow patrol

Quebec’s Mont Tremblant recently won three awards: most expensive ski rental, most expensive meal and most expensive beer. The much deserved recognition is thanks to Trip Advisor’s 2012/13 Ski Index, which pits 25 resorts in Canada and the US against one another in five categories: the three above plus the cost of a hotel room and the cost of a lift ticket. A ski rental at Tremblant costs, on average, $52.04, a burger-and-fries meal $13.83 and a beer $5.42, helping to make the resort the seventh most expensive overall. Whistler is eighth overall, while Banff is sixteenth or the tenth cheapest out of 25. An affordable ski vacation can be had in Durango, CO for $209.65 a day: $95.56 hotel room, $26 ski rental, $75 lift ticket, $9.67 burger-and-fries meal, $3.42 beer. The priciest day is just north in Vail for $801.51 a day: $645.28 hotel room, $30.67 ski rental, $109 lift ticket, $12.23 burger-and-fries meal, $4.33 beer.
