Tiny Tuesday: The Notion Skoolie

Here’s another fun one. A group of extreme skiers from the University of Vermont renovated a school bus into a traveling home so they can seek out the continent’s best powder. Team Notion’s blue skoolie has a kitchenette, a tiny wood-burning stove, and bunks to sleep seven. Check out their video from last year – just a taste of the adventures they’re planning for the coming season.

Compared to the Outdoor Research-sponsored tiny house for ski bumming, Team Notion’s abode on wheels is more functional than pretty on the inside. I like how they can open the rear for equipment storage. The bus still lacks a bathroom, which means the team relies on gas stations and the ski resorts for their hygienic needs. And they might consult this list of free overnight parking lots before they decide where to ski. (Then again, maybe they don’t bother.) Fuel economy is probably in the low 10s, and lift ticket prices are through the roof, so this sort of adventure only makes sense with a sponsorship.

But none of that matters when you’re having this much fun, right?
