When Wachusett first put in the summit lift, 20-some years ago, they had only two trails from the summit (there are five now). As a play on "chu-sett" we used to call it "two-$hit". Now it's just "The Wa".

Always thought that "Killington" should be "Killing-town" for all the gosh darn interections.

I remember skiing Alta once and seeing with a liftie with a Snowbird hat that had been edited to "No-bird".

Sauze d'Oulx used to be known as 'Susie does it'.

In its heyday, it was popular with people who liked to party.
