How to spot a winterhighlander?
Date Posted: 11.26hrs on Fri 11 Jan 08
It occurred to me this morning that unless you have bright yellow kneepads, it's pretty tough to spot a winterhighlander on the slopes given that

1) We're no allowed stickers

2) T-shirts are a bit chilly for this weather

3) A lot of folk are thankfully wearing a helmet and therefore not a Winterhighland bunnet.

What about something we can wear over our jackets. Initially I thought of something like training bibs (not the infact sort) then I realised that something like a captain's armband would be just the ticket.

Winterhighland armbands ... is that a guid idea?

Gregor - good idea.


How about a wide velcro "ski tie" that could double up as an arm band?

In the first instance, any old velcro tie could do that stood out from your jacket. I think my local ski shop has cheap yellow fluro ones that could easily be written on with a black waterproof marker. Although "Winterhighland" could be too big to write on it eye popping smiley


BTW: My son has a homemade WH sticker on the front on his helmet.

What about a winterhighland snowboard leash! Although I wear mine as little as possible and it isn't very easy to see it could be distinguishing if it was bright or something!

I still want stickers!

This has the added advantage that you'll never be branded a "gaper"!

It would be easy tae spot one, they would problay be the only stupid ones oot in the pishing rain when its windy as fook catching one tow/chair/train aw day for that last run and buzz, but that would be a small number of the winterhighland Cherry/'Erb loving crew!


The majority of them would be sitting at the side of the slope in a chair talking pish, if they ever made tae the resort!!!!!!!!!!

What on earth is "cherry/'erb loving"? Is it something they do in "the west" while getting eaten by midges?
