It's a term that captures the inelegant flailing perfectly, and once you're in on the joke, you can stand near the bottom of a ski slope and laugh yourself silly watching people "roll down the windows." ...
I can't even get up on skis in order to roll down the windows. You might say I can't even get the car out of the garage. If I could, I would most likely be a member of the group the boarders like to call "SPORS" (Stupid People On Rental Skis).
Instead, I exist simply as a "touron" (half tourist, half moron) who has ventured into the area to take in the apres ski culture of Northeast Ohio's two most popular downhill destinations.
