Thread: Best Gaper qoute of the weekend?

DropCliffs - I heard a very similar comment the other day, in addition to this gem (heard at the top of 9 from a 40ish man in his Bogner fartbag): "Yeah, the view is nice, but they don't hand out cookies at the top of the lift, so I'd have to take this place down a notch."
Besides being a mystifying comment in and of itself, it also made me wonder where they do hand out cookies at the top of the lift?

This past weekend @ Magic mountain VT. For the record I have no affiliation with the mountain other than know management & sometimes offer pics up for the website.
Me: “Let me take your picture, I take the pic of the day for the Magic website”
Alice Cooper: “Really?”
Me: “yeah, I’ll put you on the internet”
AC “Internet? Great, hold on, let me take my hat off” (takes hat off & shakes hair wildly)

I bet you all have been in a position at some point in your life where you were a newb, gaper, jong, etc.
Yes, the shit they say can and is funny, but rather than hold them out as some sort of charactitures of themselves, embrace that perhaps that they are not as all knowing or awesome as you.

To his credit however he did have duct tape covering a hole in his camo pants, and duct tape = Core.slopstyle crosscarver junior

How about all the people who thought the snow was great this weekend in Tahoe? (It wasn't)

I guess it's a regional thing. I'm from Twisp, not Winthrop which is 8 miles North.
I live in Anaheim, not LA. When in any other city in the area, including LA, if someone asks me if I live "here" - I say, "No, I live in Anaheim"
So yes, I'd be the gaper who would think- "so you don't live here" although I would say "oh", .......but I'd think it.

^^Do you have a funny quote, or are you going to fight with Chad about the semantics of "here" all day?^^

We need to make a sticker for the maggots to put on their skis.
Q: "What are those?"
A: "These are skis....stop asking me about them."
If I hear, "What are those...waterskis?!" one more fucking time I am gonna punch someone....

Are those water skis Phish?
Sorry couldn't resist mang.
What I love are the gaper locals. The ones that have been in town for a couple months and think they're the shit.
They ask "Where ya from."
You say "I live in Denver."
They say something like "Oh sorry.."
The fact that you have skied ever line on the mountain means nothing or the fact that you've skied every mountain in the range that the ski area is in means nothing either.
But they are local

I like it when gapers still use the words "fat-boys" and "parabolics" when describing skis, as if they were some weird new innovation! And no these are not my powder skis. I ski these every day... even on hardpack!Leave No Turn Unstoned!

yesterday I saw a dude skiing below the chair in a #12 Patriots jersey and I yelled "GO PATS!" really loud.
I must be a gaper
