Noun - In snowboarding or skiing, the large, tightly packed groups of first timers found mostly comprised of little children and their parents. Often not quite sure of what they're doing, going slow, and/or swerving from side to side in wide turns. So named thanks to the brightly colored tassels found on the backs of the children in these groups.
Snowboarder 1- Dude you almost hit those kids!
Snowboarder 2 - Dont worry they're just a bunch of tassholes.
