10 Ridiculous Ski Resort Names

Enough double-entendre fodder to last you a lifetime. Photo:

There actually was a bloke named Nub Sarns who founded the American resort Nub’s Nob. Unfortunately, it’s not named after his genitalia. ‘Nob’, we think, means ‘view’ in American (that strange adaptation of our native tongue that Yanks like to call ‘English’) – or something to that effect.

Bizarrely, Nub’s Nob has a superpipe that was named in Transworld Snowboarding Mag as one of the ‘Top Five East Coast Pipes’ back in 2009. So, there’s more to the resort than just a silly name!
