Gaper snowsuit laughs

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
My wife and I are on our last hurrah for the season at ABasin now. I saw a great onepiece snowsuit today, and it reminded me of a very funny website I believe I found through Epic. It was a bunch of pics, with commentary, and likely European in origin, making fun of one-piece snowsuits.

I searched Epic and Google to no avail.

Anyone remember?

1-2 feet of snow in the next 24 hours in Summit County!

Yes, the Fartbag site that criticizes what people wear. Kinda funny and sad that they are 'boarders' that condemn skiers because they don't ski in modern clothing. Thats funny right there!

Its a British 'site and as soon as I find it I'll post it up.

Last season was my last one in the Ossi, thousand dollar, super comfortable dry and warm, shoulder-padded, tight-waisted flamboyantly colored fartbag.....did not know I was doing something 'wrong'.

I care not at all what anyone wears, ain't none of my business.

Crack up when I think of me wearing it while the TRUE GAPERS laughed and criticized me without me knowing.....Some things in life are hilarious, for sure...judging others is not.

I've looked all over

Just want a laugh - the commentary was rife with satire, and that was funnier than the actual pictures.

I'd like to see one with photos of what people wear to play golf, especially those highlighter colored polo shirts that came out last year. Now that's GAWDY!

Please don't take this the wrong way. But these pictures remind me (especially the ones showing a crowd) of just how many people ski just to have a great time so image, peer-approval, and ego do not play a part.

More power (not powder) to them.

Goofy is still funny! Dude, chill, no one is dissing them for skiing.

check this example out! He rocks! note the transition from the Nevica Jacket to the jeans to the neon pink gaitors to the white boots (can anyone ID these?). Who's to say he can't out ski me on any given day?

I don't generally make fun of gapers, but...these two guys were photographed in jeans and ball caps just two years ago posing in front of a double diamond sign in a flat part of the world (Liberty, PA). Hat on clown in yellow is from Wildcat. Just don't ask me how I know

One pieces are great......no snow down the britches.......none up the back. Love my Nevica......even has built in recco......so they can find my frozen corpse. Ski clothes now (generally) all look like the same drab pieces of ill fitting dog crap. You can hardly find a nice pair of bright red powder pants anymore.....what's up with that?

You know, it's still amazing how much neon, rear entry boots and many pairs of straight skis are still out there. Phil and I saw a guy in his red powder strecth pants, some funky goldy race jacket, rear entry boots and 200plus straight sali's in March.

RED POWDER PANTS..... You wanted them? You sure??



And the biggest gaper of all (me) (notice the guy to the right)

If anyone i am skiing with stops to take photos of other peoples outfits,
I am very concerned about them.

This one is a bit odd. The guy in the Bronco suit is French, and the photo is at Deux Alpes. The girl is from Wyoming, and is explaining who the Broncos are to him.

White pants!? Wow, that's some gaper gear. Hey, check out the duckbill boots! Hahaha. I'm glad we freeheelers can poke some fun at ourselves. I've skied with knickers over wild print lycra tights. There are photos of that. I don't have any.

Are you sure that isn't a picture of Payne Stewert from 1985?
