If you’re heading out to the mountains this season, you’ll no doubt stumble across a whole host of different characters and soon-to-be friends. We’ve compiled a list of 15 people you need to keep your eyes peeled for this winter.
1. Wealthy Skier Who Seems Like A Colossal Prick, But Is Actually Quite Sound
This character is quite easy to spot. They’re usually abnormally tall, decked out in an expensive red ski coat, and have a healthy bay-window of a belly that suggests they’ve not eaten less than three courses per meal for at least 10 years.
Their goggles will have a Macbook built into them, and their watch will cost more than your student loan.
They have anecdotes about somebody called Anthony from the country club, and that thing that happened when they went to South Africa to watch some rugby chaps rugbying about.
These people are easy to dislike because they’ve spent more on their skis than you’ve spent on food in a year.
But then, when you get chatting to them and you realise that, irrespective of their wealth, they’re just a bloke that likes arsing about on the snow, just like you.
The only difference is that your wealthy pal can afford a new pair of ski pants when they get a hole theirs, so be nice. Who knows, they might even get a round in.
