Whistler’s Gaper Day 2011 started with a bang… and I’m pretty sure a broken tailbone (40 HQ photos)

My girlfriend and I spent the holiday weekend taking advantage of some late-season skiing in Whister, BC. Whistler is located in America's top-hat, Canada, for all you Mexican Chivers (and Mac) out there. We were lucky enough to stumble upon a yearly tradition where all the locals dress up in ridiculous outfits (yes, even more redic than their usual every-day hipster/grundge onesies) and thrash their way down Whistler Blackcomb one last time for the season -hammered drunk.

Before hitting the slushy slopes, a small group of Gapers tore down the concrete steps of the Pan Pacific and it didn't end well...

Needless to say, we had an awesome time hangin with those crazy Canucks -I highly recommend visiting. Oh, and if anyone knows Constable Stables, Badge #164543, can you please ask him kindly to “lose” the ticket he wrote me for an illegal u-turn and an expired driver’s license? Chive Eh!!!

    why haven't we annexed canada yet? all of their hot women move here and become famous eventually anyways.

    • spud

      Because we don't accept green pesos as payment.

      • FLIPPS

        seriously??? I can't tell if your trolling or really that stupid

      • Rob

        pretty sure our dollars been much higher then yours for a while now, I enjoyed getting my chive shirt for less then what you payed, Love our monopoly higher money EH

    • b-ry

      more like our hot women move to the US and become obese.

    • craigarlen

      Have you forgotten about Celene Dion? That is why we don't annex Canada…

      • Logan

        We said sorry dang it, you can have Bieber as comensation.

      • Quebec rules

        Celine Dion has been living and performing in Vegas for the last 10 years or so. She's your problem now. That's what we do in Canada. We let the crap go to the US and keep all the good stuff.

    • Snowman

      how canada is doing compared to to the US, i now take all bashing as jealousy

    • YupYupYup

      All the men with balls move to Canada, so bring it! And no truly hot woman ruins her life with celebrity.

    • thetech2

  • GVizzBo

  • yopapa

    • panama99

      Thumbs up!!! If you think yopapa is an asshole.

      I get tired of people saying they "hate" the Chive and yet here they are going through it probably each day like most of us are.

      Yopapa GTFU, see ya.

      • panama99

        I apologize…



      • yopapa

        up above this comment, you can see the biggest sucker in the internet history. take a picture ladies and gents, this suckas one of it's dying kind.

        • Tim

          Your life is depressingly empty and meaningless.

      • duff

        he didn't say he hate the chive! burned!

  • pyrocyz


    that is all

    • Ross

      Yummy. I like her. She looks like a smart girl 😉

  • brent

    #13 fine dur.

  • Hamm

    The ticket says your liscense expired 11/05/11 which is 5 months in the future so. . . go get a new liscense take it to court with you and they will have no proof that it was expired, $276 saved.

    • Sizzle

      It's canada. They write the date backward there. 11/05/11 = 11 May 2011.

      • MattFoley

        No, you write the date backwards. See, you either write it from the biggest time measurement (Y/M/D) to the smallest or the other way around (D/M/Y). It's like writing the address like this: 1600 United States Washington D.C. Pennsylvania Ave NW. Just doesn't make any sense.
        Well, what to say to people that thinks dividing length by 5280, 12 and then 16 and volume by 31.5, then 4, 2, 2, 8, 2 and 3 makes any sense?

      • backward

        it's not backward, it's THE right way, as used all over the world

    • Mundo

      They write date as dd/mm/yy not our familiar mm/dd/yy

      • Bruce M Hiscott

        Canadian government standard is to write yy/mm/dd, we are trained to write the day that way

        • Hamm

          Well then. . . Canada 1.. . Hamm 0

    Nice one! Blackcomb mountain is awesome. I gotta get back up there again for some great snow boarding, and tasty beverages in Whistler village! Good times~!

    #9 Ashton Kutcher?

    • Stevo

      they may not be thumbing down your assertion that it is Ashton Kutcher, and instead are probably negging the inexplicable career and success of same.

  • doodle cakes

    I got one of those tickets at whistler too…only 150 though, fucking by law officers

  • Sizzle

    I like how at this point the Chive guys are literally just showing us pictures from their vacation. Who cares? And don't you think it's your fault you got a ticket for driving on a suspended license, not the cops'?

  • Nick

    Every major resort has a "Gaper Day" which usually falls on April 1. Gaper is a term locals use for people that aren't from the area and are terrible at skiing or riding. It's basically a day to get drunk and make fun of tourists. It's insanely fun to get wasted and make fun of people that aren't in on the joke.

    • Haterade

      Like Leo and John. I can guarantee they unwittingly rocked the gap.

    • SeaBassEX

      Every ski resort, even the local hills, have a day like this. Any excuse to get drunk and have a good time. Nothing wrong with that.

      • Matty

        Here in tahoe not only do we have gaper day, we have pirate day. I think my favorite gaper day game is "do they know?". Basically just point out gapers and speculate if they know its gaper day, or if they are just gapers.

    #34 kindly learn to spell. it's "lose"…

    • Hollow

    RCMP Don’t “loose” any tickets…..there like the FBI of Canada!

  • snoobs89

    im going to say something here, probably going to get thumbed down to mexico, but what the hell. basically i have a problem with the chive these day's (q the thumb downs) i absolutely love the chive, dont get me wrong. but its changed. i've been chiving for about 2-3 years now (if your relatively new to the chive, go back use the bar at the bottom get a full bodied vintage chive post * from atleast a year ago, go on, dont worry i'll wait) did you do that? good, there was no posts about crappy new cameron diaz and justin timberlake movies, or pointless posts "if it fits it ships" or the biggest dissapointment ever…the story of pats weightloss… (well done patty but dude i dont care you lost some weight the chive isnt a chicks glossy mag) i just want to say "what happened chive, you used to be cool" and i know im not the only one who thinks this

    *seriously John ive put forward the idea for the arCHIVE about a year ago a place to find all old posts easily, but still nothing.

    • snoobs89

      dont even get me started on the deadspace fiasco either..

      P.S i love you Paula

      • Flapper

        Totally agrees, the new chive posts are not as funny or awesome as the old (2-3years ago) posts. Where's the meme posts? The only good improvement is hump day.

        • snoobs89

          Yeh im not going to bad mouth everything about the chive that has changed, the Daily morning awesomeness has been a great addition, Hump Day and the Epic wallpaper post's are also damn good! but good posts (other than the regulars DAR, hump day E.t.c) just seem to be getting fewer and farther between.

      • Khaki Mallard

        It done make a person be insane

    • SeaBassEX

      Well, don't let the door hit ya on your way out. You won't be missed.

    It is good to see that you were driving a Volvo.

  • Beldar

    I thought you said people wore weird outfits when they did this. Looks like pretty normal Canadian stuff to me.

    • Rob

      yeah we don't have sweat pants to cover our obese waistlines good one Beldar you have a more fucked name then the donkey your mother screwed to produce you

    Gapers at gaper day? It's all about us!

  • http://www.revoporn.com melon


  • Haterade

    So a couple gapers go to Canada, see people dressed up funny, probably ask "why are you dressed up?", get an answer, "it's gaper day," take pictures, and post it on their shit website? John and Leo, you tools are gapers. They were making fun of you, as deserved. Most likely the reason you got a ticket. Also, please, stay the fuck out of Colorado, we have enough gapers already.

  • imguessingimaguest

    proud to be a canadien chiver, anyone else?

    • Logan

      Yep, the land where the crown royal flows.

    • YupYupYup

      Bob and Doug to the rescue! And the Canuckleheads are gettin' it done!

    • ratedgg13

      Go Canucks! If only our country wasn't so damn huge I'd suggest a Chiver meetup but…

  • Shane

    Challenge the ticket, Leo. Our legal system is so congested that the officer who wrote that ticket isn't going to show up in court and you won't have to pay. Worst thing that can happen is he/she does show up, and you pay the fine anyways.
