    Fuck that bites.

    We were at K on Saturday celebrating our friend Duck on his 70th.

    On his 60th he'd vowed to ski bumps until he was 70, and delivered on that like a boss.

    All in, inbounds and out, skiing is pretty expensive. For me, lift tickets are a really small part of it. Gas, plowing, real estate taxes, propane, gear, on and on.
