    Best Gaper qoute of the weekend?

    Back when I was a bartender we used to call New Years Eve ďamateur night.Ē Still do. Itís when all the people that have no skills or practice at being drunk get sloshed and itís a shit show.

    I70 was messed up yesterday. I ended up at Eldora. So did everyone else. The percent of people that were on rental gear was incredibly high. ďWhat should we do with our houseguests the day after Thanksgiving...I know, letís take them skiing!Ē Holy crap. Was scary out there, especially with literally 5 runs open and everyone packed together. Just getting to the bottom in one piece was survival. Tuck and shoot for gaps in the gapers.

    From now on, the Friday ski day after Thanksgiving will be referred to as Amateur Day in our household. Iím just happy no one I know was hurt. It was terrifying.

    Many gems, but, my favorite is the simple "oh fuck" when that guy sees the wall coming at him.

    I'll ski the day after but only if there's good snow, not WROD. Had a great day at Kirkwood many years ago. On second thought--given the traffic shitshow truckee and north tahoe has become my day of Thanksgiving skiing days are probably over.

    This probably isn't uncommon but a couple days ago I came across a guy in the middle of a run slamming his boot down onto his binding over and over. I stopped and asked if he was okay. "Can't get the damn boot to go in!" I showed him how to press the heel lever down to raise the heel cup so the boot fits in there...yeah, that's it. He seemed a tad embarrassed.

    I donít see no gaper in that pic. Glide sucks on those skins I bet, but slipping on icy skintracks is a thing of the past.
