The Ultimate Ski Bum competition has been set up to highlight the collection of ski resorts along the Trans-Canadian highway between eastern British Columbia and the coast. One skier will be selected to represent the whordes of eager ski bums, riff-raffing around the province. They will spend 3 months going from resort to resort, riding helicopters, cats, and snowmobiles. All of this on the expense account of several local sponsors.

One of these guys deserves this in fact they need it. Tavis’s home is a wreck, all the beer is gone and he forgot to cut wood for the winter. Cyril, the chilled out Frenchmen is wondering how he’s gonna survive a cold, snowy Canadian winter with a broken van.
