Snowboarding lingo for a goofy skier who can't seem how to figure out how to get off a ski lift, stands at the bottom of jumps, and yells at people for going to fast when they clearly don't even know what they're doing. Jerrys are often found sporting dorky attire such as a neon ski suit. They are often found with a day pass and pretend its not their first time ever skiing. They are often tourists from somewhere warm and have never seen snow before. They can often be found on their way to a resort stranded on the side of a mountain road because they completely ignore the "snow chains or four wheel drive required" signs posted along the side of the road. Jerrys are often responsible for most ski and snowboarding wipeouts. Jerrys can include unexperienced snowboarders as well. You will often find these Jerrys walking down the mountain holding their board (without a leash) and further down the mountain you will find them chasing their board because they dropped it. Its okay to be a Jerry as long as you stay on the bunny hill. If you or someone you love is a Jerry, there is still hope. Jerrys may become mediocre average skiers or snowboarders with a little hard work and practice. All you have to do to escape being a Jerry is to believe in yourself... and stay on the bunny hill until you know what the hell you're doing.
Why did the lift stop? Oh some jerrys are struggling to get off the lift.

Did you go up the mountain today? No its completely flooded with Jerrys.

Get out of my way you Jerry!!!
Check out those Jerrys, they totally have never seen snow before!

Dude what happened to your leg? Some Jerry was standing at the bottom of the kicker... no further explanation necessary bro.

Jerrys belong on the bunny hill.
