The snow world loves a good meme and as the southern season hits the twilight month of September with plenty of snow for spring skiing the northern season is already counting down the days till first lifts (around 80 days) and talk of a mega El Nino powder season.
So expect to see some memes hit the social media news feeds when the first snow starts to fall north of the equator. We have curated, though that is far too an impressive word to refer to simple internet graffiti, the best of the web's ski and snowboard memes for your sharing pleasure.
Ned Stark usually rears his Game of Thrones head with 'brace yourself winter is coming' when the first flakes hit the ground north or south.
If there's a big dump of snow then expect to see some meme reactions to all the postings of snow pictures from those obsessed by the weather.
But the funniest memes are those that really say it like it is. We've all thought it but someone has put words to an image to show it.
There's the classic injury meme.
The broken lift meme.
The can't believe the cost of a ski holiday meme.
Then there's the memes that poke fun at those who take their skiing and snowboarding so seriously. You know the ones, dressed in the latest gear from head to toe with the lingo and low riding pants to match and that's just on the bunny slopes.
Or the double entendre meme.
The all the gear no idea meme.
Relationships are usually a prime meme target too especially when deciding what comes first, your partner or skiing and snowboarding.
But remember in the world of memes, never let grammar get in the way.
