Im talkin from 3 years ago not 10, sledding in the past 3 years has pretty much doubled. Plus with most b&bs we stay at there locally owned and paying 10 bucks for a ceaser in a bar is gay balls. Hotel where i live is 110-120. Literraly 3 years ago it was 90-100 a night in bc now the same ones we always stayed at are 140-180 per night plus all the extra fees that get tacked on and there nothing special.
So a hotel in a place with the no sledding is only $60 less per night?
Sledding has doubled in 3 years? I think you must do accounting for Trudeau with that math 🤣

I dont see how u validate your point? The hotels have been 120 a night here for way over 5 years and have a million things to do around us. The ones where i sled have nearly doubled and still only draw is sledding cost of fuel, for truck and sleds has went way up, costs of sleds has went way up, meals have went up. If you compare a sled trip to bc 3-5 years ago compared to now u will see a pretty crazy jump in that price. Mb u do big trudys accounting and think the budget balances it self, your living in a hole if u dont thinj sledding has got much more exspensive in the last 3-5 years

Your math is as good as your spelling lol.
I didn't say it's not more expensive but you say costs have doubled.
Has a sled doubled in price? No
Has premium doubled in price? No
Has diesel doubled in price? No
A million things to do at home? Should probably stay there if that's the case and save yourself a pile of cash.

Naw ill just keep using b&bs like i first mentioned and running dyed diesel back and forth. 5 years ago sledding was half the cost for a trip and yes some things have doubled fuel for example was diesel 2 bucks a litre or premium 1.95 3-5 years ago? Pretty sure those were both under a buck, and certain hotel stays have so to, so i stand by my statement lol u do you big shoots but i think most people will agree sledding has got substantially more exspensive. we are also not far off close double the sled price at 15 to close to 30 now for a new unit. U find me a sled that was 30 grand 5 years ago from a dealer i was 15500 on my 2020 summit 850 snow check.

Cost have went up for sledding a insane amount.

In November 2018 I bought a brand new hold over 2017 axys 800 174 LE, 2 years warranty, all the bells and whistles for $14800 in my garage. What’s a top of the line sled cost these days?

5 years ago I was buying revy av gas for 1.40 a litre this winter it’s 2.40. Last winter I think it was 1.70 ish.

When the bw in revy opened i stayed there almost every trip for 5-6 years. I was paying 140-160 a night, the sand man was 99 a night. I have some rooms booked at the bw later this month I think it’s 320 a night now.

I’m glad the wife and I live the DINK life.

Correct. making 100k less than the last 20 yrs. Vax mandates near crippled my business
You do realize everything is more expensive than 10 years ago and running a hotel is no different. How much do you think it costs to heat a hotel? Power? Taxes? Staff?
What's it cost for a hotel room where you live?
e
The only thing that hasn't gone way up is wages

Fuel hasn't been under a dollar a liter for over 10 years.
A new 2024 summit x is 17k
Long way from 30k.
Yes things are more expensive but you are way off on the real costs.

Top of the line to top of the line they certainly have doubled thanks in kind to turbos and big screens. I’m envious you got diesel that cheap that year as I paid .60/ litre! 😂

Add .15 cents to farm fuel and that gets u to .70 at the pump, well under the 1 dollar u said with room to spare., and thats all that was offered at the time so im going by what the manufactures offered cant play make beleave with what was offered top of the line to top of the line as all u can compare. We can compare 120 cc sleds if u want they used to be 2000 new now there over 4 or that doesnt count either?

I was paying under 70 cents a litre for diesel in the summer of 2019, I’m no mathematician but that’s less than 10 years ago, also was paying $200 for 3 nights at best western in Valemount 4 years ago. Just paid $420 for two nights last week. Some costs have definitely doubled

That may be but on average fuel prices have been over a dollar a liter since 2012 in BC and most of Canada.



Valemount has probably the highest room rates outside of Whistler lately. It's been average $150-200 a night for rooms in most resort towns for years.
Stayed in Revy last month for $150/night including breakfast.
Gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.

Where did you stay? I’d be all over that. Was it a room with two queen beds?
