Big ski resorts
have gotten into a trend of recruiting foreign skiers and riders
to work their mountains for the season. As many as 400 of them
wind up on any one mountain. We thought it would be fun to get
a group of these young people together and find out what life
is like as a traveling ski bum.
The group we
talked to is working Copper Mountain in Colorado. They gathered
in the computer room, where they check e-mail from home. We put
them on a phone and this is what they had to say.
