Friday Photo Flashback ~ Skiing when you’re broke

Friday Photo Flashback



I thought I would see what kind of winter pictures I could come up with.

Maybe some old skiing ones, or at least something with snow anyway.

Then I came across these pictures from college at Montana Stat University. Bridger Bowl, the ski resort was right there! How lucky and cool would that be!

Then I learned what all people learn in college. Math and economics.

Apparently one actually needs MONEY to go to one of them thar fancy ski resorts. College kids don’t have money.

MSU 024

So we skied in the dorm rooms. That’s my roomy Willow there.

MSU 025

Apparently any broke, crazy person can ski in the dorm halls.

And get this……

It’s even FREE!

Fun pictures. That last one of you is so cute. When you're a poor college kid you have to come up with your own entertainment right? lol

We use to go to the city playground at midnight and play tag. It was scary and lots of fun.

Hahahaha looks a lot of fun skiing inside the dorm.

Couldn't get a holiday photo since we don't have a scanner so I am sharing grade school photos again.

Love the pictures of the inside of the dorms. It brought back lots of memories of my "dormitory days." Also can you believe how expensive lift tickets are now? Yikes.
PS I loved your picture yesterday of you and your hubby. It has inspired me to take a few more of just Chris and I. We really don't have that many pictures together.

You are too much! Thanks for the laugh! I may be skiing tomorrow...except not really. But we will be in MN where there's REAL snow!! I had to go out an buy a coat - I haven't had a coat in a few years and I figured I might need one if I'm going to the Frozen Tundra! ;) I mean, it gets cold here, but a fleece jacket and a dash into the house/car is all we need.

When you live in a dorm nothing is ever off limits when it comes to fun. Coming up with things to do when you are a poor college student are the best ideas.
