Dictionary Required

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Since my Funny Story post did pretty good how about a Skiing Dictionary. What are some slang and/or words that are used in Skiing/Snow Boarding and what is their interpretation so a newbie can understand. How about you use the word in a sentence too!

Side cut - when the lift line up is too big, often you can side cut to get to the front of the line quicker.

Bevel - the cute Aussie with the thick accent who works in guest relations.

P-Tex - 1970s rock band known for the hit song 'Bang a Gong'

Bang-a-Gong - what happens when you drop your water pipe off the chair.

Boardgasm:
The ecstasy you feel when you nail your first fakie to fakie 720 (is there even such a thing?).

Fakie to fakie 420:
When both of you fake your orgasms so you can just get it over with and go smoke a joint. (Just say NO, kids....to the orgasms and the joint).

P-tex: Handy combo device women can use during their "monthlies" to also help with bladder control. Heck, I can use one of those for my long drives back to LA from mammoth.

That's all I've got right now. Let me think about it for a few.

Thanks Vinn,

Not everyone 90% searches the archives for topics like this. This is just to keep it fresh for newbies, such as myself, that havent been on here before.

err... Maybe he used the search function???

To see how difficult it is to find info like this, I made believe that I was looking for this post and went through the exact motions I would have gone through if I had needed to find it myself.

I first tried searching on "dictionary", then "dictionary" + "skiing", then "glossary" and turned up a couple of reasonably relevant hits, but "no cigar". I then thought of using the term "slang" and got the thread that I remembered was in the archive.

Good search results are never handed to you on a silver platter. Sometimes it takes a bit of perserverance. You may have to do a few different searches and scroll through a couple of pages of hits to find something that you are pretty sure should be there.

There is a dictionary for skiing, and newbies, it's by Henry Beard and Roy McKie.

It's definition of skiing, the art of catching cold and going broke while rapidly heading nowhere at great personal risk.

Powder, a deep layer of nice, light, fluffy snow that falls a week before you arrive at a ski resort or the day after you leave.

Instructor, a canny individual who after years of struggling to profit from his or her mistakes, has finally figured out how to profit from other people's.

I could go on for hours.

Nice to have this link added to the current, but in all fairness......It's nearly impossible to keep up with all the new slangs. Seems to be changing daily.

Heck I'd never heard of a "fartbag" until I got on this forum.

Does that make me old?:

Here's one the snomobilers use that could be handy for skiers too:
Snirt--snow mixed with dirt.

Proper use: "I'm not hitting it today. There's nothing left but snirt!"
