last friday at beaver creek was good. I pulled into the back of the bear lot for a mid day excursion. The family next to me was clearly not from around the area. The dad asked me "does the bus come by here and pick us up" to which I replied "no you have to walk over there to the stop". Mind you this was maybe 500 feet away, nothing far by any means. When I said that the dad shook his head in disbelief, I was just waiting for a deer valley type comment.

not from this weekend, but on a few different occasions, I have gotten the
"so do they let you double tipped skiers in them snowboard parks now?"
"so you hit them metal railings on those things"
and the best are the broken binding comments towards teles. and I'm talking about the serious guys, not the ones who just like to give people shit for tele'ing

I had a good one at Jay this weekend.
Sick day, bluebird, 8" of fresh. Everything was great. I was skiing very well, my boots wernt hurting me.
Tweaked my knee around 2pm so I called it a day. On the way back to the parking lot, on some low angle groomer, a french canadian, quebec no doubt, snowboarder ran over my skis while we were still moving. He came to a stop on my ski tips. Keep in mind im still sliding at this point with this moron standing on my skis. I yell at the moron, and he turns to me and laughs. Without thinking I punched the asshat right in the side of the head. Knocked his ass right to the ground and kept going as he yelled at me in french.
Later i thought about it...I should have hit him harder
o yeah, he was wearing the burton money camo bogner. that might have added to the impuse to punch himLive

However, having finally scratched some money together recently to buy a used pair of 04/05 K2 SPs (first twin, first "fat" ski), I have to say people love them. I notice people all the time looking down at them in the lift line and smiling. I'm sure I'll be getting plenty of gaper comments as the season goes on though, they're pretty hard to miss.
I'm going to have to give up my own gaper moment, and it was particularly bad because this one not only makes me look retarded, but is pretty insulting as well.
About 3 years ago I was riding up a lift which they stopped in order to load a sit-ski onto. This was a sunny spring day, so naturally there were a lot of tourists around at Sugar Bowl. This lift in particular, Christmas Tree, was mostly green/blue, and happened to have our training course on it.
Me: I can't believe they have to stop the lift to load those stupid snow-bikes on.
Woman next to me: Actually, those are for handicapped people who want to ski.
Me: (having the sudden urge to jump off the chair and kill myself)
Oh, and of course there were always the snowboarders who would ride into our race courses on USCSA competition days, under the orange tape and around the gates. When we'd yell at them they'd usually give us gestures that would suggest, "Whatever skiers, I'm totally rad and shredding it up OB, broheim!" Sure, whatever.

Not skiing related but I guess they're not just limited to skiing
I was hunting grouse a couple of years ago and was walking along a trail heading back to my truck. When two girls came around a bend. As soon as they saw me they stopped, turned around and went back up the trail. A few minutes later they came back down the trail this time with a smelly wannabe hippy guy. (had dreads and I could smell him from 5 feet away)
Hippy: Huntin big game?
me: nope I'm huntin ducks
Hippy: did you bag any yet?
me: not yet but you should have seen the wood duck I shot last week it had 30 inch tailfeathers.
Hippy: sounds like a nice one. What do they look like?
I just kept walking

Blasting down a diamond slope at Mt Snow, decide to pull over and wait for friends, see female figure at good stopping point on left, pull over hang out for a few. Friends pass by, a closer look tells me this person is terrified, and way over her head. She turns and asks me in the middle of a black diamond slope: "Are you going down?"It's all about sincerity, once you can fake that you have it made.

I saw him from the lift a number of times - he was really a good skier for someone older than time. I hope I'm still making turns at his age...

My reply, before turning and doing the road-runner-puff-of-smoke-act:

Unfortunately I missed out on the first hand experience, but this one is worth sharing...
This is at a small local hill that had a pretty good 25+ cms over night plus another 10-15 on the week. generally a great place to watch some pretty funny gaper antics (granted they are generally younger (10-16) kids)
In the day lodge...
gaper - "are you a ski patroler"
volunteer patrol (wearing the blue and yellow) - "yes"
g - "I lost both my skis and a boot on the hill (rentals), could you get a sled and get them for me"
vp - " how did you get down?"
g - "oh I walked"
vp - " where on the hill?"
g - "in the deep snow"
vp - "and you just left them?"
g - "I looked for a while but couldn't find them"
vp - "we'll see what we can do."
01-29-2008, 10:56 AM #244I MEANT A TR OF THE LABIA LAPPIN. I NEED PICS OF THAT
At least it was a good call refraining from a TR of my Inbounds, Milquetoast, Mt. Snow, Gaper Outing.It's all about sincerity, once you can fake that you have it made.

The reality is simple:
The margin for error when you are playing at the highest level is so small and the penalties are so great. ...
Thats how it happens. The worst line in the world is "he died doing something he loved" it's bullshit because he would rather still be doing it..."he just fucked up".

Guy skis up to a packed lift line at Vail on Saturday and starts yelling “ones” progressively louder for a solid 30 seconds until someone figures out what he is getting pissed off about and points him to the singles line.
