After saying I skied in vermont, the past couple years everyone who has never skied in vermont asks "its all ice all the time right" , instead of asking how it is there.
after a couple long discussions my new answer has been. "yep its always icey at okemo, I dont know why anyone would ever ski there"
the irony is despite great powder skiing up high at the bird, that low faces have been some of the worst conditions I have seen this year.
Also utah born gapers are funny....
We had some guy born and raised in utah, 6 feet tall at least 200lb skiing on 160 Rx9 ask me and my buddies if our skis were better in powder snow on a 13 inch powder day. Again its not worth my time anymore since this guy who skis in utah on rx9s doesnt have a clue. I just said 'nope I ski them because they make me look cooler."
Well we can't tell if that guy in the photo ^^ is a gaper or not since we can't even see him!
Aren't all gapers funny? Maybe you could start, "Help a Gaper Day" so they can move on.
When is a gaper not a gaper but just clueless? or are they the samething.
Example: Skiing the half pipe, I come down the wall about halfway through and suddenly notice a guy rocketing through the pipe without even going up the walls. He was skiing it as if he was bombing a narrow trail. At the bottom I go talk to him. He seems to be somewhat proud of blowing by people in the halfpipe. He's got Dynastar straight skis from the 90's, boots from that time period, and jeans. He looks like he suddenly woke up and found himself skiing in 2011. I tell him he can't do that, that it's dangerous and there's a proceedure. He says, "Yeah I don't know whay all those people up there were standing around, (like idiots was the tone), so I just went". Clearly he was clueless as to this new half pipe thing.
So, is clueless with skills still a gaper?
