In Praise of the Ski Bum Lifestyle: “The Weatherman” short film

By: Downdays March 18, 2019

What happened to the ski bums? We know they’re out there somewhere, doing what they’ve always done. Yet the bards singing the praises of old-fashioned, simple ski-bum culture seem few and far between these days — their beckons drowned out by the incessant attention-seeking of daily dose social-media self-promoters and purveyors of the modern luxury ski experience. Or to put it more simply: the ski bums are still out there, but can’t be bothered to update you about it on Instagram. (There might not even be WiFi at the crash pad, imagine that.)
