Wintering in an Alpine ski resort has given me opportunity of meeting all kinds of interesting people who have made their homes here temporarily or permanently. Some of these I meet in our little Anglican Church congregation and some out in the wider community. In the old days ski bum was the preserve of the teens and twenties; now you get them in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. They all have a story to tell, and perhaps even a skeleton or two in the cupboard.
The above-quoted remark came out casually from a church member.
