If Ski Resorts Had Honest Slogans…

Ahh ski resorts. We obviously love them, because they enable us to snowboard without hiking, have figured out how to make boring old water into wonderful, wonderful snow, and provide us with hours of healthy entertainment. But that doesn’t mean that they’re also not full blown marketing machines, with a penchant for glossing over reality. Becky from Novel Nibble really outdid herself with these slightly-more-honest slogans, and we took the liberty of making them look official.

Big Sky, MT


Killington, Vermont


Jackson Hole, WY


Stratton, VT



Okemo, VT


Sugarloaf, ME


Mountain Creek, NJ


And we figured we’d add a few more.

Park City, UT


Mt. Hood Meadows, OR


Boreal, CA


Trollhaugen, WI


Vail, Co


Mt. Baker, WA


Summit at Snoqualmie, WA


Bear Mountain, CA

    My years of working meadows has taught me you can put an entire metropolitan population on one hill. Also its slogan should be “tons of amazing side country access, that we’ll open tomorrow… ” or “Fresh tracks till 9:07” ive never seen a hill get tracked out quicker in my life

    Granted I worked the U.S. Open in Vail and talked to many pros about how they like and love the venue I doubt it’s going anywhere.
