Live to ski,
This review is from: In Search of Powder: A Story of America's Disappearing Ski Bum (Paperback)
For anyone who lives in or near a major ski town, this is a good read that they will be able to relate to. For anyone who once enjoyed the ski-bum life and ever wondered why it can't be done like the good-ole days, this is a good read. The author explores the ever-changing economics of how the ski-bum life got squeezed out over time. His travels to ski towns give the book good local color. The stories told by former ski-bum types in addition to those who have worked for or in the ski industry are fun reads. Bottom line, it's all about having a good time and living life to the fullest. The ski bum life of the 1970s and 1980s might be a gone, but this book shows that this is a life that continues to evolve.
