Gaper Day 2017

Gapers Gonna Gape – Gaper Day Blackcomb 2017

Corporate takeovers? A wall of snow blocking off the pond skim on Zig Zag? Mandatory Bag Checks?

Is this a list of things that ruined Gaper Day 2017?

No!

Because Gapers gonna gape, and that’s just what we did. Hair toques were flapping in the breeze, high speeds were achieved on antiquated ski gear, and the air reeked of sunscreen and Bud Light.

It was a beauty day, one that reflected the radness of our entire season. And yes, there was some sadness as well. Winter 2016-17  was like a 112-night-stand with a megababe who we may never see again.

It was hard to say goodbye.

But time goes on. And the good news is that this year’s Gaper Day felt less sloppy than the last couple years.

Whistler Blackcomb did a great job sending a message that can best be described as: “Hey guys, let’s just take a couple logs off the fire out there eh!”.

And reports are still trickling in, but it looked like it was working.

A lot of the gapers just couldn’t stop hotdoggin’ for long enough to cultivate a significant daydrunk.

Most of that action was saved for that special time when Gaper Day becomes Gaper Night.

We’ll spare you those details. Rest assured though, it was beautiful.

Cheers everyone. This season was a real treat.
