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!"
