I thought with Ski season in full-effect and the Winter Olympics just ending, it would be fun to put out a ski-related post and the first thing that came to my mind was the ugly outfits I see on the slopes each year. With this in mind, I decided to go on a quest to find the most ugly, stupid, funny, worst and wacky ski suits I could find.

Are you familiar with the term “gaper?” A “gaper” is generally known as completely clueless skier or snowboarder. They are easily identified by their usually outdated clothes, one-piece suits, skinny skis and rear-entry boots or because they are the only ones on the hill not moving, blocking the path. You’re going to find lot’s of gapers below.

Check out what my massive search returned.
