Ribbons. Take a 4 foot piece of bright colored ribbon (the thin 1/4" wide type often used on Christmas presents) and a 2 inch square of duct tape. Put a hole in the center of the duct tape, put the end of the ribbon through the hole, then tape it to the center of the bottom of the disc.

Here's a video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq7onUGx5So

Be sure the disc is warm and dry when you do it so the tape sticks. It actually holds very well when you throw, but peels off pretty easy when you want to take it off.

The air drag from the ribbon will take a little bit off your distance, maybe 5-10%, but not nearly as much as you'd think. When the disc submarines into the powder, you can still find it from the "tail" sticking up through the snow.

Enjoy!

Thanks! Hopefully will save me a couple of discs and I'll spend more time throwing the disc instead of looking for them haha
