f00bar The Bundys

That cute couple who thought it was a good idea for the one half who knows how to snowboard to teach the other rather than go the lessons route. I think this endeavor should be a requirement for all wanting to get married. Though the wedding planning industry would take a huge hit as would the divorce attorneys.

mrkjones My son coined this one:
Butt Boarding the boarder that bounces off their edge and continues on down the mountain on their butt with the board out in fount plowing snow as they go.

And of course I end up doing just that under the chair so everyone can watch.

or the complete opposite - the 4 ft tall six year old kid, fearlessly charging the steep, mogul-littered tree run below the lift

Argo I almost busted out my camera yesterday on a couple that was snowshoeing down the Main Street in Vail. On straight up concrete heated sidewalks with zero snow. Poles and all......

Gaper Nukes - First-time, fearless skiers who have no business off the bunny slope. They don't know how to turn or stop other than falling over and simply straight line any hill they encounter. Including blacks. They are a danger to everyone on the hill.

Rocket Noobs - Same as Gaper Nuke only snowboarding version. Got hit by one just the other day.

Meat Rockets - Tiny kid versions of Gaper Nukes or Rocket Noobs, still dangerous but because of the smaller mass they are much less so.

Napoleon Dynamites - These are noobs either on skis or snowboards that are mostly just a danger to themselves and not others. Identified by slow awkward movements and flailing arms.

Gangsta Skier Zombies (GSZs) - Usually very tall, lanky teenage males with oversized pants and sweatshirts who always wear mirrored goggles and wear their helmets tipped back. Never use poles. Float around emotionless. Sometimes they will hit a rail but only with the least amount of effort possible. They never look at anyone or speak, even their friends.

GWs or Gypsy Wanderers - Low-intermediate or advanced beginner skiers that take a path down the hill with complete randomness, typically utilizing the entire width of the slope. Is completely oblivious to surroundings. Usually is a female aged 30-60 but examples are found in other demographic categories. An example path they might take down (across) the slope: right turn, right turn, right turn, left turn, right turn, sudden stop, look at you as if you see you, turn directly into your path at last minute, etc...

Skier Dads/Moms - Everyone knows who these assholes are.

Potentially Combustible Family Unit (PCFUs) - Usually led by Skier Dad or Mom (but not always), these groups can range in size from 4 up to 12 and encompass a variety of ages and skill levels. Give them a very wide berth.

It's all in good fun...anyone else do this at all?
That is funniest thing I've heard on here. I'm rhe don't f**k wit ma funk sway! Lol

Just saw one last week. No helmet or toque, just a pair of really ghetto looking goggles and his majestic white hair jumping from mogul to mogul.

I love those guys. Absolute heroes.
