Just about as cheap as driving up there by myself, and obviously so much more relaxing. Lots of trips per winter = lots of opportunities to get out there, and harder to make excuses not to. Having access to the bus during the day (at some areas) is nice compared to dealing with lockers. Nice chance to meet other people who enjoy the outdoors.
