Senior Citizen Ski Bums?

When they grow up, they want to be ... ski bums?

Apparently yes.

Check out this short video, "Ski Bums Never Die," which was produced by Sherpas Cinemas (whose upcoming documentary film "Into The Mind" I blogged about a few weeks ago), and appeared on Solomon Freeski TV, about a handful of retirement age friends enjoying the mountainous powder and their time together at Whitewater Ski Resort, up in Interior British Columbia.

"I don't think I want to come up here when I can only do groomers," says Mary Woodwards, 75-years-young.

Neither do I. Even if I'm only half her age.

So much for ski bumming being defined by the post-college, pre-day job crowd.
