    I think I'm going to go with just HOW CAN I BE COMPENSATED. Classic.

    That sounds like something my HS friends and I would do on purpose.

    We haven't had a new TGR meme in quite a while ($37 is probably the most recent), but this has potential.

    Have seen the same truck in the lot twice in a week with snow chains. Which, I guess if you're worried and the road is bad, fine. But yesterday the drive up was on dry gravel.

    Where I'm currently nursing a humerus that is in more pieces than the architect intended, I'm adopting this as well.

    Just had my Shifts mounted. Yeah, I'm a gaper, shoulda done it myself. That said, I guess not every shop put the annoying instruction sticker on!

    Didn't want to cover up the identification of which ski is right vs left?

    I suppose. Unlike the asymmetrical sidecut on the Marksman, the Amphibio asymmetrical rocker on the Ripstick isnít obvious.

    The other day, I'm sitting outside drinking a bloody Mary and this chick is trying to put her skis on to ski down to the car. Full dynafiddle mode. Aside from the fact that she was trying to put on the uphill ski first, it was just fun to watch. She finally clicks into both skis and before she leaves just says "I'm sorry you had to see that."
    No longer stuck.

    I donít know, that parting line was pretty funny. She might not be a gaper-for-life. Who among hasnít had a moment like that?

    Best Gaper qoute of the weekend?

    It took us two days of hard charging to finally realize that no one had readjusted my daughters bindings for her slightly smaller boots after my wife borrowed them. Somehow they made it through the dumps, silver queen, HV, gowdys, many many airs and zipper line double black bump runs etc etc. Finally decided to disengage on one side on a fast cat track back to the base of Snowmass day 2. Resulted in some hilarity. Ski Patrol seemed amused when said daughter pulled into Two Creeks carving turns holding a ski covered in groomer face plant snow. They gave her some good natured ribbing as she slid up to the tool bench.

    So I think that makes my whole family gapers that day.

    so, im waiting to load at mid-way, chatting with the lifty
    when a grom rolls by and looses her ski on the trani,
    close to the lip ....

    guy on the next chair, kind-hearted soul,
    bends down and tries to recover the lost ski,
    takes a header and goes over the falls,
    lands in the porta-pit ....

    probably not a true gaper,
    just an error in judgement,
    grom's mom was smokin' hot

    You know there is only one person that can tell you the right way to put a ski on around here right?? Heís releasing his pole straps now and is on his way over to explain proper ski attachment techniques on 75 degree slopes. Wait for it.

    I was in Courmayeur with my GF (now wife) and i ended up getting us into a bit of tricky spot where the traverse we were on ended and we needed to boot up about 200' to the knife-edge ridgline to drop in to the other side. We were on a 40+degree slope that was pretty firm but edgeable. A fall would have you sliding about 1000' down into the drainage below- no rocks, trees or anything, so nothing that would kill you or hurt you other than your pride and schedule. Anyways, I am one of those people for whom time slows down, and my heartrate drops in pressure situations, but my wife is super high strung and is the opposite. I remembered this video, somehow, from a youtube rabbithole years ago, and succesfully managed to walk her through the process step by step. She also did not enjoy putting skis on, on a knife edge ridge... but no one died, and we had a nice picnic lunch+wine in an abandoned refugio in the courmayeur backcountry an hour later. So, basically, this video saved(allowed?) my marriage.
