On the chairlift, Mt. Rose, yesterday:
Non-helmet-wearing snowboarder (on regular soft-boot setup snowboard, not hard boot setup): I like to come up here early when the runs are icy, so I can go fast.
Snowboarder buddy of his: How fast?
NHWS: I hit 70mph this morning, easy.
SBOH: Really? Wow, man, that's fast.
NHWS: On Kit Carson, I usually cruise along about 50-60, but then it gets crowded, so I have to slow down.
Kit Carson = giant wide mellow blue run...

yesterday at stowe a friend of mine was going to huck the waterfall. a 25-30 footer to flat. Personally Ill never do it because I like being 5'10'', and not compressed.
My friend was at the top looking for a landing zone, and these gapers were yelling at him to do it.
Gaper1: "Do it, the landing is so soft"
Gaper2: "Yeah, I just hucked it and im fine."
Me: "The landing is flat as shit and all bombed out right now, its not OK.
Gaper1:" just aim between the bomb holes"
Me:" funny, that big one looks kinda like someone fell sideways, and didnt stomp it"
Gaper2 (helmet caked with snow)" ...Do it man, the landings good"
nothing annoys me more than morons egging a total stranger on to huck something that has a flat bombed out landingLive

Gapers are interestingly attracted to "jumps" with crappy, bombed-out, flat landings... like moths to a porch light.
Oh yeah, they must also be within view of a chairlift or lodge, you know, for braggin' rights!Leave No Turn Unstoned!

Just remembered this one - I was about 10 years old, skiing in NH with my parents and their friends. My dad and I were on a lift at Cannon Mtn. (I think), and my parent's friend commented on how large the moguls were that the snow-cats had made overnight. My dad called him out immediately - it was solid. We still joke about that one when we ski together.

I have a new favorite. Not exactly overhead-gaper, but I took my GF to Maine, yesterday, and it was her 5th day ever on a board:
I'm in line, getting a beer with lunch.
GF: There's no where to sit up here.
Me: Just grab a seat downstairs, I'll be there in a minute.
Me: The seats downstairs.
GF: How do you get there?
Me: You go down the stairs.
Entire bar within earshot starts to laugh. She's walks out.
About 10 mins after lunch she broke her wrist, and not long after that she's the ex-gf. Too bad.

on the chair with a couple from fernie. they were talking about back home how they would duck the ropes at night to get to the runs that didn't have lights.....
because the mountain would groom those right away, and they could hit up the fresh groomers.
who the fuck ducks the ropes for groomers?

6 year old daughter says "Dad, when that happens don't you hurt your Balls?"

So last night after a marathon of flights back from my honeymoon, i finally make it back to the states. The TSA "Officer" confiscates the tiny ass snow globe from my wife's pack which was meant for my goddaughter. He says, " would you like to at least keep the box?". fucking retard.A woman reported to police at 6:30 p.m. that she was being "smart-mouthed."

Yesterday a boarder in front of me in the line waiting for the rope to drop attempts to stomp his board and ends up stomping it on my skis. He mutters something and keeps doing it. Seconds later his shitty headphones break into 3 pieces, I said something along the lines of "karma, bitch" and he takes his board off and walks away.

"they are a good ski; they just don't match my current desire to have a more twin-tippy touring ski."

About half way up, I saw an old beater truck stuck in a snowdrift (see attached photo). It looked like it had been there quite a while. Bummer. That year was really dry until an epic March blizzard, so I figured that the truck might have gotten stuck then.
On the hike down I heard an awful racket. After a few minutes of walking, I came around a bend and saw the truck blasting its way up through the snow. That crazy fucker really wanted to get up that road.
I'm still not sure who the gaper in the story is ... but my jaw dropped when he drove by.

This week, I have a friend out from NY. He's 6'1" 190lbs. I lent him my 195 SuperBROs. After skiing one run (on a groomer), he saidme "Dood, these skis are waay too short and really fat.""My policies are based not on some economics theory, but on things I and millions like me were brought up with: an honest day's work for an honest day's pay; live within your means; put by a nest egg for a rainy day; pay your bills on time; support the police."

after skiing many laps on red line at magic saturday, from the chair:
"i hope those are your rock skis"
the trail was in great shape - 10 days after the last storm no less - a few rocks here and there, but no serious trouble avoiding 'em at speed if you know how to turn/steer.
if there was a chair over the woods would he say "i hope you have your chainsaw skis?"
as for my bases, one wide and shallow scuff after 10 not-too-cautious laps
