A Utah Resorts Question - Bras and bracelets

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Am here in Utah for the first time and midway through a 2 weeek stint. Firstly, must say that really enjoying the different hills to try everyday and some of the food in town is fantastic - back to Butcher's for fine steak!

However, one thing my mate and I have noticed in pretty much every resort we've skied thus far is the collection of bras and bracelets on selected trees under chair lifts. we were curious as to where this tradition orginated and basically what the story is?!

anyone who can shed light will settle a few bar debates we've had so far!

cheers

Not sure why but here in the NE I have seen the undergarments in the trees as well. I just wish I was on the chairlift when they were being tossed over!

It's an American tradition. Lots of different reasons for it. I've never been to an American resort that didn't have an underwear tree.

In days on Yur or better yet in nights of yur. One had to not only Conquer the mountain but also a fair maid of the Village. then stealaway into the night with proof that yes you did in deed do the deed. The prize would then be displayed on a tree so that all the world would know that yes at the age of 37 you were no longer a Virgin.

utah49 - thanks for the mini history lesson! there we were convinced that it was so excellent contortonism on the ladies' part once sitting on the lift - but no, it's the men about town making their conquests know! top work!

cheers again

It has evolved over the years sometimes the ladies do make their own contributions.

Isn't there a certain Mardi Gras aspect to this as well?

well yes there is that as well. I'm sure you know about Mardi Gras beads and Ladies exposing one self to the elements. But If you want to read about that, look for my letter to Penthouse mag.

Didn't this "tradition" begin with the famous pantie tree that is next to the chairlift in the back bowls at Vail? I've seen some fancy panties on that tree, but never a pantie-less skier back there....

Don't know where it started but it is by now pretty much ubiquitous.

Yes American export export something new to improve the Worlds culture bra/pantie trees can be another American icon in Europe. Along with the likes of Coke Cola McDonald's, and Micheal Jackson

Somehow I don't think this export will be very popular at any of the Iranian ski resorts...
