Gaper Day (pt. 1)

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)
