A crazy day in Vail, Colorado celebrating Gaper Day! A local celebration to imitate the tourists that come to ski and snowboard throughout the season. Snowboarding, skiing, onesie wearing, partying and generally causing a ruckus on the mountain Featuring shots using a GoPro 4 Black, filmed in 2.7k. I get my smooth GoPro footage by using the Rider M from ZhiYun and gear from Polar Pro, you can find them both here: http://www.zhiyun-tech.com https://www.polarprofilters.com/ Join me on my travels and subscribe to my channel for more adventures.

Gaper (n) A gaper is a skiier or snowboarder who is completely clueless. Usually distiungished by their bright colored clothes and a gaper gap, the gap between goggles and a helment/hat. Gapers also do the "Gaper Tuck" which is an attempt at being a ski racer by tucking, however, it is done incorrectly with the poles sticking straight up like thunderbolts and lighting, very very frightning! Gapers also sit at the bottom of jumps and try and go big off table tops in the park.
June 7th, 2015. The last day of ski season in Whistler means getting wild, and wet, and celebrating sun, snow and the people who love them. Gaper Day!
