Après Adam here with step 8 of my 12-Step Program for Après-Ski Conditioning. I’m here to help you have the best après-ski season of your life!
Halloween is quickly approaching and if you're anything like me, you’ve probably put off planning your costume until a few days before Halloween Weekend. I’m here to share a few reasons why a ski-themed costume might not be such a bad idea:
That is why I strongly recommend going with a ski-themed Halloween costume this Hallow’s Eve. While Opening Day, Gaper Day, Clown Day, April Fools Day, Pond Skim Day, Frank, Closing Day at We Always Close a Week Early Mountain Resort, Real Closing Day, and Closing Day at Rock Ski and Hike Down Mountain require very little costume planning beyond throwing on a bunch of random old ski clothes, goofy hats, neon accessories, and gear from your Gaper Day box, Halloween is different.
So when that cute guy or girl you’ve been stalking on social media all summer comes up and asks, "what are you supposed to be?", you have something better to say than “umm, I’m a skier from the 80’s… with a jester hat from the 90’s… 70’s style aviators… last year's goggles... oh, and this brand new ironic onesie from that Elf website that every frat bro on a ski trip was wearing last winter.”
Having a specific character can lead to the ultimate ski town pick-up line: “You’ve never seen Hot Dog: The Movie? You can't call yourself a skier if you haven't seen it. I have a copy I found at a thrift store on VHS back at my place if you’re not doing anything later...”
Here’s a thorough, yet incomplete list of ski and snowboard themed Halloween costumes that you can always recycle or repurpose on Gaper Day:

Thrift stores are a great place to start looking for a costume. In the Salt Lake and Park City areas, check out the Deseret Industries (aka the D.I.), The Park City Christian Center, and Savers on 3300 South. You should be able to find a couple of costume pieces to start kicking around some ideas upstairs. Supplement thrift store finds by borrowing from friends or family. Use Amazon.com for the hard-to-find essentials. Sign up for a sample Prime membership for free two-day shipping, because you’re a procrastinator and paying for shipping sucks.
