How much money do you think you spend on an average snowmobiling weekend getaway? My wife and I have been discussing the "cost" of the sport and I was curious what other families spend to support the sport. Thanks  RB

For a 700 km weekend, about 120$ can.   That covers the gas, oil and lunch. I sleep in a tent when I'm planning a 2 day ride so it comes cheaper then going at the motel.

I couldnt possibly say because it depends on where im going or who im going with, somtimes $100 or somtimes $500 but i think the norm is around $200 give or take a little.

For both the wife I, we spend about $5-600US  for a very comfortable  weekend riding fri sat and sunday in canada. It could be more depending on where youre at. Theres no doubt snowmobiling is expensive, my wife has never once given me any grief over any sled expenditures. We buy 1 new sled a year, taking turns getting the new one. With the losses taken on the sleds and all of the other costs involved Id guess I spend between 5 and 8 thousand per year on snowmobiling. I know people who spend that on country club memberships.. jwhat a waste IMO.

Also normally when i go on an outing we stay at a cabin because me and all my buddys have cabins somewhere out on the trails.

I think that I'll end up spending 12 to 15 grand this winter including 6K to build my project how I want it, and a trailer and alot of out of state trips.

i thought this subject was going to be moved into the top ten lies but everybody is honest so no need for that.

 i drove 6 hours to sudbury with my 15 year old son and spent $660.00 for rooms food and gas after 2 nights stay. one day out of that we went 350 miles.

the tent trick in -30 proves the french babes are hot and AC knows where to find them so lets plan a camping excursion into quebec with AC.

I live in a smowmobiling area and operate a sled shop, so it's just the gas burned at night on weekends. Shop is open all day sat. open sun. till noon. I usually close on thurs. when the trails are all groomed perfect, normally 4-8 of us go ride from home for 12-14 hours.

Between $200-$600 if it's just me and the boys and that depends on where we go and if it's me and the wife it's $300-
$800 and that also depends on where we end up and how much riding is done
