Gaper Day (pt. 1)
175 // April 12, 2008
Gaper Day — aka “Thrift Store Ski Party” — was held at Arapahoe Basin today. Lots of beer, music and locals in florescent onesies with mullets.
Gaper: A gaper is a skiier or snowboarder who is completely clueless. Usually distinguished by their bright colored clothes and a gaper gap, the gap between goggles and a helmet/hat. Gapers also sit at the bottom of jumps and try and go big off table tops in the park. (ala Urban Dictionary)
1. My eyes are burning from that gapers bright colored clothes.
2. I fell off the chair laughing at that gaper tuck.
3. Did you just see that gaper getting landed on because he was sitting like a dumbass at the landing of a jump.
More pictures tomorrow.
