Combining the greatest business opportunity in the world with one of the most exciting sports of the world has resulted in millions of dollars of worldwide volume. Skiglo represents an important constant in an industry committed to dynamic change. Some of the traditions you may expect to enjoy are listed below.
The Skiglo "Hoot"
Participants will be instructed on effective techniques for developing this important vocal utterance for locating others on lift lines, on chair lifts, on the slopes or buried in powder in the trees. An important "Hoot-off" will be held at the awards banquet.
The Skiglo Name Tag
To be worn at all times. Useful as a prospecting tool, remembering your name after a snow snake attack, discounts at Gene Taylor's Ski Rental, etc. Be sure your name on the registration is how you want it on your tag.
The Skiglo Ski Pole Streamer
Ideally attached to the loops on the handles of your poles. Makes it easy to spot fellow Skigloers on the slopes from the chair and vice-versa. Attention is then gotten by a correct "hoot." Caution should be practiced when "hooting" from a chair with non-skigloers sitting next to you.
Skiglo Giant Dragon Levels
The Giant Dragon will mix the following: Fast Dragons, Half-fas' Dragons, Drag'n 'as's, Dragon Droppings and Dragon Dropping Scoopers.
