Modern Myths - Barbegazi Picture

This is my entry for the Modern Myths Contest found here ---> [link] I got the Barbegazi. Here's some info on the little guys...
"Barbegazi are mythical creatures from Swiss mythology. A variety of dwarf or gnome, a barbegazi resembles a small white-furred man with a long beard and enormous feet. They travel in the mountains that are their home by skiing with their massive feet, or using them as snowshoes. In the summer they aestivate in caves and tunnels and do not come out until the first snowfall. The word barbegazi comes from the French barbe-glacée, meaning "frozen beard". Because of their penchant for high altitudes and low temperatures, they are rarely sighted by humans, but sometimes help shepherds round up lost sheep. Their greatest known excitement is surfing on avalanches with their remarkably large feet, but they are said to give low whistling cries to warn humans of the danger above, sometimes they will give their best effort to dig humans out from the snow."
What did I think Barbegazis would do in the modern world? Why, open up a ski resort of course! All Barbegazis and people are welcome to the grand opening of the Barbegazi Ski Resort!
