A true Gaper is one who wears their ski pants and sometimes even jeans tucked into their unbuckled ski boots with their power straps flapping. They always ski down a flat slope as far in the backseat as they can get, sometimes even trying to be as cool as a ski racer and attempting a "tuck." Some even try to be Superman and take off down the run with all they're 80's jackets unzipped. Gapers almost always put the bar down on the chairlift and ask the lifty to slow down the high speed detachable quad. The word "gaper" comes from both the acronym guaranteed accident prone on every run and the famous "gaper gap" between the helmet/hat and the goggles. Gapers somehow manage to have yardsales on the flattest bunny slopes. A yardsale is when the skier crashes and all their gear goes flying, landing scattered across the run. Gapers always stop in blind spots on runs, just below knolls and jumps. It seems that everything they do to try and be cooler makes them look even more stupid.
"God I hate goggle tans but you know what's even worse? A gaper gap tan."

"Hey watch out for that gaper!"

"You would think they would have a brain freeze by now you know with that massive gaper gap and his jacket's even unzipped!"

Gapers are clueless, experienced skiers or snowboarders. They spend most of their time either A) Straight lining every course (they'll fall almost every time) or B) Bragging about how they straight lined a course, even though they looked like a complete idiot doing it. They are known for their large gap between their goggles and hat/helmet. Other signs of gapers include: Cutting in front of other skiers and snowboarders (possibly causing crashes), gaper tucks, rental gear, yard sales, and any other form of trying to copy a racer.
Gaper: "Dude, did you see me speed down that run? The only reason I fell was 'cause I caught my edge on an ice patch."

Skier: "Yeah, I did see you, your such a gaper!"

G.A.P.E.R is an acronym for a skier or snowboarder that stands for: Guaranteed Accident Prone on Every Run. They can be spotted at the landing of jumps just out of view for those dropping, cutting people off on runs, running into people, falling off lifts, and generally making a fool of themselves. They are usually dressed in 80's ski gear or brand new gear that they spent way to much money on and have the trademark gaper gap between the goggles and hat and many times the pants are tucked into the boots.
Dude I just got snaked by that gaper

I almost landed right on that gaper in the landing of that jump

A clueless touristy beginner to snowsports, usually dressed in bright 80's clothes and is possibly from texas. Gaper is a reference to the gap between the beanie and the goggles on their forehead. Prone to getting "clacked" or ran into from making giant slow wide turns that take up the entire mountain, and being on runs that are far above their skill level.

Also a good term to describe the gangstered out, baggy clothes wearing, shit talker standing on the top of the terrain park complaining about everyone being "gapers" who, when they actually go, cant even make it halfway up the half pipe, don't even make it over the jump, or something equally unimpressive.
That gangstered out shit talker at the top of the half pipe was really just a gaper in disguise.
