I didn’t have much of a plan on what to do after my winter at the South Pole. An innocent conversation in the Galley, followed by a couple of hours of surfing on the Internet, made me the proud owner of two season passes. Without any planning I was set to become a snow bum for a season.
I managed to get about 70 days on the mountain, which is not bad considering the price I paid. This was a great experience. Having a lot of time allows you to board Monday through Friday and to avoid the weekend crowds. I spent the weekends on little side trips or hooking up with friends along the way.
