I have been called many things in my lifetime but I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I have been assimilated with the word dude ,what words on other ski sites do you see that are not generally used Here on snow journal .

Not that there is anything particularly wrong or offensive in the word dude and there are many more words and I'll start with the word stoke or stoked but generally are generally used by a younger group of people

I read responses on New York ski blog and other sites such as Alpine zone and what's not and you know the kind of words I'm talking about like I said.not so thoroughly offensive but just different implications used by a younger generation

Got some?

    Jerry. Used a lot now, especially if you have a bad fall or do something by accident that makes you look like a novice skiier/snowboarder. I'm not sure how many of you are on Instagram, but the Jerry of the Day account is quite funny.

    Gaper. Defined in the Urban Dictionary as:

    "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."

    I've heard the "Gaper Tuck" more often called the "Turkey Tuck." And I've been known to do that myself on flat sections.

    :D

    It's interesting what areas get mentioned on SJ.  Hunter is a great area, but most of our members are not Hunter regulars. Crotched and Ragged get disproportionately high coverage most likely because a high percentage SJers ski these areas a lot.

    And before ciscokid arrived, nobody was posting about mid-west areas.

    Hmm.  I'm going to start a new thread!
