Wow, I agree with telerod for once. Amazing. :

Wow! If I were you, I'd also insert a bladder catheter, then you could pose pretty much indefinitely. (Of course, if folks on the hill saw that apparatus, I think ALL would be a-gapin'!) :

If you were me, you would ski a few yards into the trees on the side of the trail. You are either a woman or a non-skier.

This information is absolutely worthless without pictures.

Heh, reminds me of a girl we were skiing with at the old Park West one time, back when one-pieces were in. She went in to 'pop a squat' in the woods. When she finished her bidness, having dropped the one-piece into a suitable position to do her thing, she went to put it back up, flipped it to go onto her shoulders, and her car/house keys went flinging out of the inside pocket into the air and then into the 18" of fresh we had. We spent about 45 minutes looking around, careful to not get too close to the 'used' snow ( but finally did find the keys. It was fun telling that story about 50 times that night at the bar to perfect strangers...

Wow! This thread has certainly gotten some use!

Here's a question about equipment-related gapers. Would someone be considered a gaper if their skis, boots, and bindings were all the same brand?
What exactly are the equipment ??


Or would they be ok as long as they don't have a Ski Tote ?

btw, I think one of our more artistic members should create a gaper emoticon :

no, they could be sponsored....

no rules for equipment per sei regarding brands that I'm aware of. I don't really think they are any gaper brands of equipment. I'm sure others will let us know

What about...

Backpacks?
On groomers.

I've skied wearing a messenger bag. Once, 1980s, before messenger bag on a bicycle was gaper (or poser, check out my fixie!). Pretty sure it was gaper at Killington even then. It was on groomers, baby! At Kmart.

Duffle bag? I did my laundry at 7Springs then rode a lift and skied to the car with it. They have a laundromat so you can ski and do your laundry at the same time.

Someplace (Loon?) has a "briefcase slalom" in the Spring...

I've considered messengering with a briefcase. Probably would get me into buildings I'm denied access to now. With a business suit, I would be unstoppable.

See if any of you can top this one. My friend was at a gas station Saturday in Bethlehem NH, and there was a couple behind him filling up their car. They had Quebec plates, and a ski rack with skis on their car. They asked him if he spoke French, he said, "A little," and they proceeded to ask him where the nearest ski areas were. He mentioned Bretton and Cannon, but told them there was no snow, as in, "It's like 21 celcius, there's no snow!" and he said they were shocked. Crestfallen. He felt so bad he said he wanted to hug them.

So how could this have happened? Did someone in Quebec just win a huge bet? Is someone handing over a hundred bucks saying, "I cannot believe they fell for it?" Were they looking for Utah?

I sent them. They had come here to California first.:

Nah, they were related to that other foreign tourist that gets mentioned now and then in golf forums. You know - the guy who lands at the airport, hails a cab, and says "take me to famous Augusta golf course". And then we hear how he gets a free round 'cuz the club pro feels sorry for the guy who's thinking he's at Augusta National in Georgia but he's really in Augusta {Maine / Iowa / Indiana / Kentucky / etc}

Wow. Bizarre. Maybe they got confused by talk of spring skiing at Mt. Washington and thought NH was the land of the glacier?

Earliest good skiing I've done in the Northeast was ~October 23 I think. 18-24 inches at MRG. I was 16...stole the car before the parents woke up.

There's a guy at my mountain who rips, just rips. I've skied with him dozens of times and he never makes a bad turn, regardless of conditions. And he skis on crap, old straight skis, no edges. One of those Gustavo Thoeni hats from the seventies. Big, brown Vuarnet sunglasses, mismatched poles, the works. Can't carry his skis right either, always tips back. Drives me crazy. Nice guy though, and my skiing's improved a lot by following him around...

I don't think so. My friend doesn't even ski, and would have little motivation to make something like that up. And I didn't make it up!

Funny thing, there has been so much GAPER talk going on, a buddy of mine who is a killer skier tries to look as gape as possible. Last year I met him at the chalet wearing color changing purplish skin tight pants (probably women's) a dirty lime colored bomber jacket (probably a 12 yr old boy's) teal knit headband the works. AND this frickin' guy gets more attention from girls than ever. Once they see him rip they assume he has a darling sense of humor to dress so "funny"! Its outrageous.
He is here on in a gaper poser!

True story: years ago, some friends and I lived in Salt Lake, at the bottom of the road up to LCC. My friend Dave, a quality skier, had a rust-colored down jacket that was just vile. Dave and I stopped to pick up a couple hitchhikers one morning.
"Can you give us a ride up to Snowbird," they asked.
"Only if you don't make fun of my jacket," Dave said.
They looked at each other, shrugged, and said, "nah, forget it."
