In ski towns nationwide, April 1st means one thing, Gaper day. Gaper day is when locals dress up in retro ski gear, act slightly foolish and party hardy all day long. Although my serious party days are over, Gaper day is something I look forward to all year long, and there is no better place to celebrate it than the legend that is A-Basin. The beach, babes, blades, beers, brats and boys. What more could a girl ask for?
