    Worst ski area ad ever?

    Montana Snowbowl is a special sort of place.

    Today, these started showing up on U of MT campus:



    Facebook was not exactly amused...lots of shit went down, and eventually, Snowbowl posts this:



    I figured you kooks would appreciate the drama.

    I think it's fairly clever- unfortunately also fairly woman fat-shamey.

    It would be a funny meme on the Figure Athlete section of the T-Nation forums or one of those "fitspiration" Tumblr accounts, but as an ad for a ski area it's weird as fuck.

    Worst ski area ad ever?

    I call BS that SB had no knowledge of this (as their social media post seems to suggest?) prior to publishing and distribution....

    I nominate the old Killington ad campaign.

    Yeah I was thinking "Mad River- Ski It If It Snows," although I guess we are talking about real ads- this one may be in the same category as the Snowbowl ad

    I think it's hilarious. Sheesh. Does ANYBODY still have a sense of humor? Getting tired of the internet outrage culture and the consequential faux apologies. Snowbowl's only mistake was apologizing for the ad. People need to lighten up for reals.

    Honest question: What makes you feel that it was a good ad for a ski area?

    Like I said above, in other contexts it is funny. AC would definitely find it funny. But as an ad for a ski area it makes no sense to me whatsoever.

    Agreed.

    Also agree with DTM, it seems like one of those dumb text pictures that make people feel better about themselves. Barely amusing but maybe my humor sucks.

    I do like the 'ski it if it snows'

    Shitty humor should always be called out, that's the real problem. it's not really offensive, but I'm a skinny male with very small boobs.

    Some quick googling reveals that, unsurprisingly, this has been a meme for several years: https://www.google.com/search?q=body...w=1536&bih=730

    My guess: This was assigned to some junior graphic designer who spent his whole time fapping to "Fit Chicks" Tumblr sites. An hour before the deadline and gripped by panicked cold sweats one of the earlier versions appeared in a post and he decided "Fuck it, this'll do." Did a quick re-edit, slapped the Snowbowl stuff on it and sent it off. Supervisor said, "Ooh yeah, this is edgy, run it."

    WTF does it have to do with skiing?

    I don't find it offensive, I do think it is dumb.

    ya it's funny if it were for a gym or yoga studio or something like that, but for skiing it's pretty dumb
