Wearing teeny little bikinis and holding signs that read, “Warm Your Buns Without Fur,” a pair of PETA’s sexy Snow Bunnies greeted skiers and snowboarders at the foot of Little Nell ski lift at Aspen Ski Hill on Friday before snowboarding down the slopes.
Their snowboards read, “Be Fur-Free!” The action—which coincides with the FIS Alpine World Ski Cup—marked Fur-Free Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, when fur foes in cities nationwide made the point that the fur of rabbits and other animals belongs only on its original owners.
Why are PETA’s Snow Bunnies willing to freeze their little tails off? PETA has just released footage from its undercover investigation of a rabbit fur farm in China, the world’s largest fur exporter.
“I’ll gladly bare my skin in the cold if it will help save animals’ skins,” says PETA Snow Bunny Virginia Fort. “With so many stylish and toasty alternatives to fur available, there’s no excuse to harm a hair on a bunny’s back.”

When most of the mountain had many layers on, the brave ladies of PETA shook what their mama gave them to make a statement.

The Snow Bunny’s sign reads “Warm Your Buns Without Fur,” a clear statement for the crowds at Aspen.
After making it out for a few runs, one bunny heads in to warm up her bikini-body.
