a skier. Skiers are called gapers because of the gaping hole between their legs and skis. Also known to do the gaper tuck
. Has nothing to do with their hats and goggles and is only correct when used to describe skiers not snowboarders.
Distressed skier: Hey, you almost ran me over! (...after almost being ran over...)
Punk snowboarder: Fuck you, gaper! (...rides off...) Eat shit! (...runs into a barney
and breaks his collarbone...)
