Backcountry Magazine Podcast

Nov 30, 2021

Backcountry Magazine Contributing Editor Heather Hansman is a recovering ski bum. In her new book, Powder Days: Ski Bums, Ski Towns and the Future of Chasing Snow, Heather threads her own personal narrative—you know, the way she came to once call herself a ski bum—into the American story of ski bumming itself. It sounds so simple on the cover, as if any of us who’ve skied 100-plus days a year could relate. But in the context of today, we’re starting to question not only the future of ski bumming but its past. And Heather goes deep with skiing icons who’ve built a life around sacrificing for snow.
