What is a Ski Bum?

“What is a ski bum?” – 10 year old kid in lesson

“A ski bum is a person who loves skiing more than life itself” – me


When I was riding up the chairlift with my most recent lesson, one of the children pointed to a cabin directly under the lift.

“Do people live there?” He asked.

“Of course! Ski bums live there!” I said.

“Ski bum… Ski BUM!? What is a ski bum?”

“A ski bum is someone who love skiing more than…” I paused here because I had to think of something big, something that would get the point across, “… more than, LIFE ITSELF.”
