Naughtily named Ski runs, Resort names and Ski Signage

9th August 2019

Naughtily named Ski runs, Resort names and Ski SignageWe 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….’
