A British Columbia woman has been banned from skiing or snowboarding because of her skimpy clothing, CBC News has learned.
The woman, who has been identified as Victoria, is accused of wearing skimpier clothing in the mountains of northern British Columbia.
The incident was discovered by a friend, who posted on a British Columbia snowboard forum, where Victoria was posted.
The friend reported the incident to the B.C. Ministry of Transportation, who sent Victoria to the Yukon’s Yukon-Kuskokwim region.
Victoria is now facing fines and possible suspension from snowboarding.
The Yukon Ski Area, the official ski resort for Yukon, is also a ski area in British Columbia, according to the resort’s website.
Victoria was issued a snowboarding certificate and allowed to continue snowboarding after a snowboarder called police on Victoria, who was in a different area of the resort.
Yukon Provincial Police, Yukon RCMP and Yukon Valley RCMP were called to Victoria’s residence in the Yukons Yukon River Valley area.
Victoria has been ordered to stay away from the snowboarders, and she has been issued a $500 fine.
“It’s just so stupid to go on the ski slopes wearing skimmy clothes and then have to face the consequences of your actions,” said Victoria’s friend, Benoit Séralini, of Séroli.
Séalini has been following Victoria’s case on Facebook and was disappointed by her decision to continue her skis.
“We’ve been skiing and skiing for years, and I’m so tired of this,” he said.
Victoria’s lawyer, Robert Cripps, told CBC News Victoria was wearing the same clothes as many other skiers, but was wearing skim pants.
“I think it’s just very, very, inappropriate,” said Crippes.
“You’re just going to get a fine for something that is completely unacceptable, and that’s not even the case with the other incidents in the past.”
Sélini said Victoria was the only person at the Yukono Ski Area who was wearing a skimpy dress.
“People get into trouble because of their attire,” he added.
“The only thing that has happened to me has been when I’ve been fined by Yukon.”
