Stan Darsh is more like it!
~ Tad mocking Stan.

Tad Mikowsky is the main antagonist of the South Park episode, Asspen.

He is a rival skier who bullies and competes against Stan, who he mockingly calls "Stan Darsh".

He was voiced by Kyle McCulloch.


Tad is a skier at Aspen of which he is world campion. He bullies Stan when he becomes a skier, calling him "Stan Darsh" and "taking his girl" Heather. and challenges him to a race. Tad wins the race and when they meet at the Skier dance, Tad challenges him to a rematch. Tad's father is a rich businessman who plans to bulldoze a small youth center in order to develop the area. If Stan wins the race the youth center will be saved.

Although Tad appears to be winning the race at first, he ultimately loses when a girl flashes him her breasts - which turn out to be a pair of stranded alien "things". The distraction allows Stan to win, saving the youth center and "winning him back Heather".


Tad acts like the stereotypical rich antagonist from sports movies with few attitudes of dumb blonde stereotype, ripping on Stan endlessly, despite the fact that Stan is a little boy and has just begun learning to ski as well as not knowing Stan at all. Stan also outright admits that he couldn't beat Tad, but these admissions are overlooked by Tad as he continuously eggs Stan on to have a race with him.

During the race itself, he also uses numerous dirty tricks to secure his victory, such as throwing sand in Stan's path.


Tad sports ski goggles with a dark blue band and orange tinted lens over his blond hair. His facial features include sharp cheek bones and a cleft chin. He wears a blue skiing jacket with light blue sleeves, red scarf, yellow ski pants, gray boots and uses purple skis.


  • Tad would return in the season 22 episode, Buddha Box. In it, he wears a Buddha Box on his head alongside the other skiers.
  • Tad is a parody of the stereotypical bully from sports films.
  • He is one of Stan's personal archenemies, along John Edward.
