The Great Beyond

Episode 5: The Great Beyond

I took the ski lift to the top of the Alps, though I had never skied before in my life.

Show notes

Winter in the Swiss Alps. I was nineteen years old and I rode the ski lift to the top. While attempting to snow plow, I realized several things: I didn’t know how to ski,, I was not dressed for the occasion and, oh, look, a European ski team was racing downhill headed directly toward me.
