sure fire gaper? (SKI TOTES)

post #1 of 331
Thread Starter 
As you stroll from the parking lot to the lodge what one single thing comes to mind that you might see which would cause you to think "jong" or "now there's a gaper"???

For me the choice is clear...

The Texas suitcase- Making a suitcase with your poles where the straps hold the ends of the skis. Where I used to live in Breck huge families would walk past, all of them with Texas suitcases.

Coats of any sort left completely open and flapping. Usually the person in question seems to have worn every sweater, sweatshirt and turtleneck they own under it and are now too hot. (You rarely see the flapping open jacket with any really appropriate base layers underneath...) A scarf is a good accessory for this look.

For the midwest, it would have to be camoflage or blaze orange coats.

There's an acronym for those folks, ant. F.A.W.A.C.S.

Anybody know what that stands for?

Oh come on! I give up! what's a FAWACS?
In Vermont especially we'd see a lot of those green jackets with yellow stuff on, Green Bay? No hang on, it was New York Giants. not sure what sport they were for. Usually worn by FAT boys.

Putting your boots on in the parking lot and clumping that 1000 yards to the ticket window.

At the ticket window, putting the lift ticket on the main (center) zipper of the jacket. When they zip up and come down the hill it's plastered to their lips.

Now .... before we all feel real cool and smug .... think back to how dumb we (or most of us looked) .... we all had our moments didn't we?

The rental car haulin A$$ down the road with the rental skis on the roof rack..........and the boots in the bindings.

Sorry to double up here....

The guy who exploded off the Ski School Lift (after a typical rain followed by freeze type storm in Vermont) and calmly asked us at line-up if somebody could sand the ramp from the chair.

Rear-entry boots...with the buckle open.

Goggles on upside down. No headgear. No gloves/mittens.

I have to admit, sometimes I surprise myself when I walk by a plate glass window and wonder who that nerdy looking kid is.

Pants tucked into the ski boot.

Someone in the lodge putting on 3 pairs of socks.

Hey, I resemble that remark!

Actually, I always put my boots on (with cat tracks of course) in the parking lot because 1. they have to be warm or I'll never get them on. 2. I don't like hauling all that extra stuff or renting a locker for my shoes. and 3. with a season pass, you can bypass the ticket window and the base lodge alltogether and go directly to ski

I was at Mt. Snow (Vermont) a few years ago; biterly cold day, something like -20F. I remember my friends and I being so bundled up that no skin whatsoever was visible. I do distinctly remember seeing one teen-age (guessing) girl in the lift-line without any sort of head-gear on. No hat, no helmet, no ear-muffs, nothing. I didn't see her again, so I'm guessing that she either froze to death or (hopefully) realized that it was a wee bit chilly to be outside without a hat on.

Starter jacket
3 pairs of wool socks
jeans tucked into the rental boots (too loose of course)
sunglasses
pom pom hat.
all this...carrying a brand new pair of race skis!

I laugh when I see people in any activity who purchase all the latest most expensive gear, but don't know what the hell they are doing. Like the hikers who call for help on their cell phones, and are found hours later with brand new gear, maps, gps, etc. and have no idea where they are.

Coat open (sweating like a pig), boots unbuckled (rear entry) with pants tucked in and skis and poles carried in the arms across the body and not hooked together.

I'm sure glad the fashion-police are back in force this year

If /when I take my kids to try skiing, you can be damn well sure they aren't going to be in Gore-tex or whatever the fashionably correct garments-of-the-season are. They will be wearing their regular winter coats and snow pants - tough noogies.

I AIN'T payin' for snooty-nosed gear until I know for sure it will be used, so you can save the snickering for later.

And Mom and Sugar Cube - we can clomp thru the parking lot together - just like in the Wizard of Oz! I park my car, walk 50 yards and get on the snow - what could be easier?

Helmet on back to front.

Long skis (believing that people will think they are a good skier)
