Winter Rates

Some courses here charge more than double their summer rates. Are there any other sports where the rates change according to the weather?



ps. Not a rant. Well, maybe a small one.

    Downhill skiing? You can get on the slopes pretty cheap in the summer.

    Are there any other sports that are played in such a variety of settings? It seems like a logical outcome from a market economy. If there's more demand, the price goes up.

    I'd pay double right now to have your weather. We can't play for most of the winter. Its starting to thaw now but will be a soup sandwich for a few more weeks.

    Isn't it more of a question of are there other businesses that charge more according to demand? Of course there are.



    You live in a tourist area that has weather that can be 25+ degrees warmer than a lot of other areas during the winter months. That increases demand which naturally drives pricing.

    This just struck me, but aren't the hotel rooms more expensive in prime season?

    Yes, which was what lead me to my 'isn't it more about businesses?' response.

    Indoor tennis rates, although I think the price increase isn't anywhere near a doubling from low to high season.

    Winter/Summer rates in the South definitely change, they charge what the market will bear. Phoenix summer golf is half, maybe less, winter rates.



    If golf still is allowed under socialism, the price will be dictated by the Government.

    As I throw in a stupid political jab that had no real relevance to the overall theme of the thread.

    Pretty sure you can sit in Soldier Field for nothing in July.



    Pretty sure any activity "in season" costs more whatever "in season" means, whether it's nature or some other reason.

    Simple supply and demand. In the colder climates I have seen temperature pricing - pay what temp is at tee off.

    Chicago suburbs are really bad. You can’t get on a decent course for under $80 with a cart. Some of these courses will get you a slight break in the offseason
