May also be pronounced, "Gayper." The term, "Gapper" is derived from people found
on the ski hill that
generally sport the dreaded helmet
gap. The gap that
exists between the brim of a ski helmet
and the frame of the ski goggles. Generally these people
don't seem to care that
a very visible 2" gap exists exposing their
forehead to the elements. As a result, "Gapper" can now generally be used
to describe any skier that clearly
has no sense of style or, fashion awareness.
"Hey man, check out all those gappers out on the bunny hill"
"Holy s**t, I have never
seen a 3" gap before! That
's the biggest gapper I've ever
"Damn eh, that
gapper just cut me off in the lift line!"
