What are ski bums?

I was skiing recently in Vail and heard someone call me a ski bum.


Answer by  cady (194)

A ski bum is someone who spends a great deal of time skiing or working towards going skiing. It can imply that someone has no life outside of skiing.

Ski bum is a derogatory phrase that describes a male who wastes his life skiing. People who use this term are implying that the addressee has no important function in society other than that of pursuing his own personal pleasure. The female term to a ski bum is a ski bunny.
