Anyone can be a ski-bum. However not everyone can be a professional bum, never mind a professional ski-bum. Simply because you love skiing and are lazy, doesn‟t mean that you are qualified to be a professional ski-bum, unless you are rich. I am now semi-retired. That is, I work for a summer and ski in the winter. When I was much younger, I partied every night, skied every day and somehow, managed to work. I am not a ski-pro and never was. Every few winters, I relocate to change scenery.
