Naughtily named Ski runs, Resort names and Ski Signage
9th August 2019
We have all seen the odd ‘naughty’ name or a resort or hotel whilst on holiday and had a little chuckle to ourselves but Ski Holidays do seem to surpass all others when it comes to naughty or silly names and have had us chuckling in the office many a time so we thought we’d share them with you!
Beware, if you are easily offended stop reading this now!
Resort and Mountain Names
We have to start with this gem of a resort in Germany which is located close to the southern Austrian border in the Loisach valley. Its name speaks for itself and we will say no more – however when you put it into Wikipedia tit states that ‘nearby is an Observatory and the Wank-Haus….’
Call us juvenile but this one made us smile, you will find ‘Crap Mountain’ in Laax Switzerland and go up in the ‘Crap’ lift!
Beaver Creek in the USA
Why do the Americans love to name their mountains after ‘Tits, Horns and Knobs’?!
Big Horn Mountain (USA)
Titcomb Mountain (USA)
Blue Knob (USA)
Pine Knob (USA)
Nubs Nob (USA)
The former German alpine skier Fanny Chmelar (pronounced shmeller) has a rather unfortunate name which had Bradley Walsh in fits when it was used for a question on his popular tv programme ‘The Chase’.
Despite her weird (in the UK ) name she competed in the 2010 winter Olympics. In the world cup she has had one podium finish and came 2nd in the Slalom at Are in Sweden in 2009! Go Fanny Go !
