Living the dream—that’s an expression that always creeps into ski bum lore…but what does it mean? It means skiing pow, all the time. And working? No thanks. Except this combo actually requires more ingenuity than moving millions on Wall Street everyday. If you want to LTD, all you need to do is keep your eyes on the prize, wing it on blind faith, and get used to eating free bar peanuts.
While living the dream, your income is going to be, ah, limited, but the simplest way to watch it become a useful sum? Don’t waste your money at the bar. This entails learning how to socialize/dance sober or only wasting other people’s money. Those who don’t have their eyes on the prize love buying drinks.
