Gotta love the urban dictionary for us 30somethings on the edge of losing coolness and touch!
Gaper is a fairly old term (i first heard in around '86 describing non local skiers flopping around the resort with boots wide open buckles flailing (rear entry wide open in those days) pants pulled up sitting on top cuff of boots, straps flapping in the breeze. This species of skier also usually were dressed in the Bogner 1 piece and skied a stem christy, stiff legged, one arm out front one to the side, wedge consited of one ski pointed directly down the fallline and the other turned enough to slow progression. Does that paint a picture?
I saw a full on gaper this last weekend at wintergreen, a guy was skiing down dobie with his boots TOTALLY unbuckled with only the strap atached?
also from urbandictionary
