Totally, they allow me to be a real ski bum. Last year I'll never forget this gaper family at the lodge saying how amazing their pow day was because, "everywhere people were backflipping off the ridges..." They are stoked on the simplest things.
Or when their Daughters ask if they can go in the pipe and they say its only for snowboarders. It just makes my day!
well noted.... how about the ones that buy all the new baggy gear and park skis then suck ass when there trying show off in the park. or the ones you have to stabalize untill ski patrol get to you. i love those
the ones that get hurt halfway down the pipe so no one can ride there well earned hike....
or the ones that come slaming into you at 40 mph cuz they were too good to learn how to stop before coming into the park..love those
i like the ones that come and watch up ride but when they get above there skill level they raly are frustrating and dagerous
5 years ago i was that lid who was grinning ear to ear while crashing on a 50-50 on a box (TOTALY gaper style) dressed to fit the part too but i loved it even if kids would bitch at me while in the park. i would always look out of gondola at loon watching snowboarders and wanting to do that, until one day i saw a kid do an insanely slow cork 5 tail and from there on in i stuck to the skis.
i would always watch kids doing 180s and thimking WOW they are cool, now all i can hope is that some little kid thinks the same thing about me when i do stuff in the park.
p.s. i was 8 and was my first year skiing.
such a love hate thing. when you put it that way then yes i hate them, like when the ruin lips, stnad around the jumps( like you said) and other shit when they just ruin things and piss you off.
but then there's the gapers we all know and love. The one's that when you do a 3 they go " WOW, that was sick" or tap there gaper buddies shoulder and " yo did you see that guy, he is soo good" and it just make's you feel good.
I like it because all my friends are gaper ass snowboarders( well not all but the one's that do snowsports) and they always tell me how "pro" i am and shit. it makes me feel so good even though to be honest im probably a bit below average ( for my age and skill level, comparing to other kids on NS)
