The cast of Ski bum: The musical

A play for ski bums

Every year Fernie is flooded with ski bums. They come to the Elk Valley craving fresh powder and are driven by the desire to carve some fresh tracks in the new snow. At the end of the season, most head on their way, but some are sucked in by the experience and stay.

Every year Fernie is flooded with ski bums. They come to the Elk Valley craving fresh powder and are driven by the desire to carve some fresh tracks in the new snow. At the end of the season, most head on their way, but some are sucked in by the experience and stay.

Iron Mountain Theatre is bringing a musical version of the ski bum experience called Ski Bum: The Musical, to the stage at The Arts Station.

Ski Bum: The Musical tells the story of Jeff Snowden, a ski bum suffering from the Peter Pan syndrome, he doesn’t want to grow up.

As the musical progresses, Snowden rekindles an old flame at Big Snow Peak and he starts to see the benefits of adulthood.

Characters like a cultural anthropologist studying the culture and practices of ski bummery, and a sometimes-not-so-nice head of ski patrol, help Snowden realize that he doesn’t have to give up skiing and having fun in order to mature.

Ski Bum: The Musical is a fast-paced, shredding good time for the whole family.

The music spans a variety of genres and the comedy ranges from slapstick to high comedy.

Ski Bum: The Musical will be at The Arts Station on Saturday at 8 p.m. and on Sunday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Straight Line Bicycle and Ski.
