Nothing like a snowy hike up at Alta yesterday to get you stoked for the wheels to start crankin’ on the Collins Lift.

Welcome to Salt Lake City

The following is an excerpt from a real conversation between a ski bum and a girl who was new to Sat Lake City that I had the pleasure of hearing at the Salt Lake City premiere of Teton Gravity's Way of Life.
Ski bum: So, are you new around here?
Girl: Yes. I just moved to town a few months ago.
Ski bum: Nice. What do you do?
Girl: I'm in the accelerated nursing program at the University of Utah.
Ski bum: Wow. Sounds intense.
Girl: Yeah, it can be. What do you do?
Ski bum: Well, I dropped out of community college. This winter I'm moving up to Alta. I'm going to work in the cafeteria up there and ski like crazy.
Girl: Oh . . . nice. Is that all that you're going to do?
Ski bum: Yup!
Girl quickly exits the scene of the conversation leaving the ski bum wondering what he did wrong.
