I didn't know bunnies only referred to skinny snowboard chicks? I'm not skinny, tho im not huge... i have extra fat. i thought bunnies just referred to any female snowboarders
I don't think it has anything to do with size. When I said the "Hef" type I meant those kind of bunnies (Playboy bunnies), not necessarily thin chicks who snowboard. Although I do remember hearing the youngest chick of The Girls Next Door rides. Ooh! And she hangs out with black men, so hey look at that.
So I've never had the term "Snow Bunny" formally defined for me, but I have been hearing it since I started skiing in the 90s. To me a "Snow Bunny" is an attractive female who partakes in winter sports (Be it snowboarding or skiing) and wears a femenine outfit to identify themselves. Usually bright pink, baby blue, or white (or a combination of those). In my head that's always what a snow bunny has been. So with all this talk about what a snow bunny is, I googled it. Either my definition was/is way off, or times have changed, but here's the general consensus from a varitey of sources:
Snow Bunny refers to a white female; this expression is commonly used to describe a white female who mingles among black males.
I agree moreso with your definition than googles. Mine was more along the lines of women skiers/boarders 18-30 years old. Regardless of whether their attire was black, purple, blue, or pink who were looking for attention. You girls are too good to be the naughty bunnies I was hoping to run across.
That's pretty much the only way I've heard "ski bunny" used around here, and it's in a derogatory sense. They're the girls who care more about whether their outfit matches than how they ride (and are mostly not local). Wandered into a heli company's office last year one time and the girl behind the desk was a complete dolt, didn't know anything about anything, but she sure looked cute. Dressed like Rainbow Brite. That's a bunny.
this is exactly what i think of when someone says snow bunny. a couple of my friends very occasionally call me a bunny when they want to annoy me. and aren't within arms reach, because i will punch them. it might just depend on the people you hang/ride with, but to me... it has always been a derogatory term.
