    It is second hand but one of my favourites is:
    "These skiing conditions are fantastic!"

    In the last 48 hours, I heard the 114" we've had so far described as "en epic snow year" and once again got comments about the fatness of my 76mm metrons.

    Girlski:"Other notable gaper moves that nearly sent me through the roof on Sunday as we were driving to the hill- wet but bare roads and a line up a mile long to put chains on. WTF?"

    As a Puget sounder I was always curious about that also....jeeps, subarus, 4-runners, X-terras all chaining up on a bare, wet road up to Hood. Oh well, better safe than sorry, right? Anyhoo..last year at the top of Whistler, looking off to this magnificent black, sharp tusk off in the distance. One texan to another: "You reckon that's the black tusk??" Silence and dropped jaws from all of us in the peanut gallery....

    A few of my overheard favorites:

    "At what altitude do the caribou turn into moose?"

    and asked at The Club in Valdez (the window behind the bar is about 50' from the harbor)......."What is the elevation here?"
    "You got to express what is taboo in you and share your freak with the rest of us, cause it's a beautiful thing"

    If you get caught in an avalanche be sure to make yourself into a ball so you can dig out when the slide stops.
    I can't believe you are a rando racer because I look so much better in Lycra than you.

    People who don't think the Earth is flat haven't skied Vail.

Think to myself "this isn't gonna be good" As we approach the mid-load station, gaper lets go of the post he's been clutching, drifts forward 3 feet and falls on the ground like all his vertebrae have been removed. Me (and all the other people on the chair) start yelling at this turd to get up, cuz we're about to hit him since he's sitting on the ground RIGHT WHERE THE CHAIR IS GONNA BE IN 2 SECONDS. The Gaper in question does not think this is serious enough to make him get up OFF HIS ASS. He proceeds to remain seated, zen-like, as the chair approaches him and gets stopped on top of him basically. I look at the guy who is now about a foot below me and on the ground, with my skis all over him, and he turns to me and with the DUMBEST look on his face says

    "I can't move"

    "I don't think you're trying very hard!!"

    as if this whole display wasn't enough, after the lifties get this idiot up off the ground (literally had to lift him up) he proceeds to put his skis on the ground like he's going to click into them right there. We spent the rest of the chair ride shaking our heads in collective disbelief.
    I have always wanted to see someone eat it at the load point but it never does. I hate chair 5. I have to ride both of those chairs from grand timber.

    Saw these on a list from jellystone/Teton Nat'l Park/JH.

    "When do you let the animals out of their cages (not refering to the local people)"
    "Aren't there any rides here"
    "Why do I have to walk so far (on the paved trails)"
    "Does that happen often (in reference to old faithful)"
    "How hot are those (you mean the boiling water coming out of the earth)"
    "Are you allowed to hunt those animals (in reference to buffalo on the road)"
    "Who can I ask to turn off the snowmakers (real snow falling)"
    "Can I go there" - random, solo, way out in the BC
    JH tram riders with no gear to ride down "That was boring, we couldn't see anything" It was dumping at the base at the same time. Miss those days.
    You can't get hurt in the air.
    When in trouble, do a double.

    I'll admit the Simpson's part went over my head, but "unpossible" has been used for years here.
    It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

    People didn't understand because the quote is:
    "Me fail english? That's unpossible."

    Irregardless is a bastard child of irrespective and regardless and because of idiots around the world has been added to the dictionary.

    #2- riding the old collins lift at Alta right after opening--3 feet of fresh. I hear whooping (people used to whoop in the powder back in the day). I look up at the surrounding slopes but it's two early--no one up there yet. Then I look down--2 guys in cowboy hats on the flat cat track next to the midmountain lodge in full snowplow position, whooping.
    Who says people don't whoop anymore!
    My favorite is the guys wondering how the moguls are made.

    Last weekend I was standing in the lift line with my 8 year old daughter. Earlier in the day she had heard me use the term gaper. She looks up at me and asks, "Dad what's a gaper?" Before I could answer a guy blows through the "SLOW" sign and runs into me. "Well there you have it sweetie" I'm pretty sure she got the point.

    Lift line at Sugarbush a few years back, one guy turns to another and asks if he has ever been over to MRG. The second guy says he has been once but won't go back until they update the place with some nice amenities like slope side condos, better gooming and a village at the base. The first guy says, "oh, it's not as nice as Tremblant"?

    It wasn't really the conversation that gave them away. Full blown Spyder outfits and Metrons tend to do it before they ever speak..................

    Rumour around here that a group of tourists sat in the Peak to Peak cable car sitting outside the roundhouse on Whistler, and couldn't understand why it wasn't running.

    The car is just there for show, they havn't built the thing yet
