i would guess 9 hours from Buf
$5-$7 per hour. Open till like 1am on weekends. Bunch of relatively cheap hotels in the town and even cheaper camping 1.5 hours away(free if you know how to backcountry camp!).
Pretty much your money is spent on gas & lodging. Pack your car with 3 other buddies and split it all 4 ways. Sleep in your car or camp. I spent around $80 round trip on gas from Pitt and $17 a night camping(showers/bathrooms etc).
If you think about the thousands of dollars kids spend on summer ski camps...liberty starts to look appealing haha.
You WILL do more actually skiing more there then hood/whistler. I banged out around 50 rails hits in 30 minutes. 6 jibs per run. " Jib laps" were around 3-4 minutes. You could lap the jumps every 2/3 min due to not having to go all the way to the top. I know when i went to CoC....we hiked everything because the public t bar was always packed. Call me lazy but if im spending that kinda cash...atleast give me a fucking t bar without a 40 min wait! haha Hiking jumps gets old real fast.
