If you’ve idealized the life of a ski bum, or that friend that lives down by the river and kayaks every moment they can, this book takes a look at what the culture of being a dirtbag really means. It’s about risk, and self-medication with more risk or alcohol and drugs, and living a life that’s precarious.

Hansman looks at the racism in the ski industry, and how it survives on the backs of workers that are paid cheaply because they can be exploited. I love skiing, and was given much to think about around the inequality of the sport.
