Folks, meet Joey.
He comes to the mountain, nearly every day, with well over 300 dollars, in cash. He spends it, all. He spends it on candy, sweets, food, everything and anything entirely not worth it. Joey just buys it.
However, Joey hands all of this shit out to total strangers.
Joey skis in a medium under armor hoodie, and some thrift shop ski pants. If he saved his money for just one week, he could have a setup worth two grand. Consider that.
