Kim Kardashian & Kanye West spend NYE in Aspen, on a skiing holiday


I don’t know why these photos are making me laugh. They just are. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners are in Aspen, Colorado for the New Year, and these are photos of Kim, Kanye and Kourtney on the slopes. Kanye is the one in all black, including a full-coverage ski mask so you don’t even know it’s him. So… why are these photos so funny to me? I guess it’s because Kim doesn’t look like she’s very good at this whole “skiing” thing. To be fair, though, it’s not like I could do any better on the slopes – I’ve never even tried to ski (I’ve never broken a bone and I have no desire to, and believe me, I am the type of person to break a leg the first time skiing).

In other Kimye news, Kim and Kanye topped the annual “Worst Neighbor” poll done by Zillow. Zillow asked Americans who they believed would be the worst neighbors in America, and Kim and Kanye came out on top. Which I don’t really get. I don’t think Kanye and Kim would be terrible neighbors at all. Justin Bieber? YES. Terrible neighbor. Chris Brown? AWFUL neighbor. Any of the Real Housewives? Terrible neighbors. But Kimye? Nah.

    As a native Coloradan, we know ski bunnies and poseurs when we see them – decked out in all their finery and talentless as — wait for it – a Kardashian.

    • emmie_a says:

      That’s what makes me laugh – she probably spent $25,000 on her outfit and bought the most expensive, top of the line equipment available – but is absolutely clueless how to use it.

      • idk says:

        More like PMK put out an email about how the fam was going skiing and waited to hear back from companies who would be willing to give them FREE gear. In return, the family has to be pap’d wearing the clothes…this family has the paps on speed dial. How much longer will they be able to do this? As long as all of us are willing to look at the pics and comment lol.

    • Birdix says:

      Grew up in a CA beach town, which had a similar mentality about inlanders coming to the beach and trying to surf or skimboard (or wear the right bikini, which never was). I never really got the disdain–how are these people supposed to learn if they haven’t lived there? Isn’t it fun to have people from all over come and try what you love to do?

      • annaloo. says:

        Aww Birdix, it’s not like anyone is crucifying or torching them at the stake for being beginners, and of course people should be encouraged to try new things, HOWEVER, you have to admit when you see people overcompensating their lack of skill with posing in a costume it’s begging for an eyeroll or more. This is SO the case. I’d respect them more if they were taking lessons at places like Copper Mountain or Breckenridge than posing in ASPEN for the paparazzi which is about as tired and fake as it gets.

        And they are annoying! If it’s not PC to say, I’m sorry, but it’s like getting stuck behind someone going 10 miles below the speed limit in the passing lane. Know your area and stay in it until you can keep up with the rest! I’m not a coddler! When someone can back up their costumes with actual skill, trust me, I will fall on my knees and hail him or her as fun and great and spectacular and all the other things I was expected call them when they hadn’t really earned it. No special snowflakes here! Earn it! :-)

      • Eleonor says:

        I grew up in Italy, at the beach, I’ve moved in France, in the Alpes,and I’ve learned to ski (I have also to admit that french-people were very nice, when they used to see me in difficult they incouraged me a lot :) ) , but there’s a difference between someone (like me) who really tries to learn to ski, and someone who buys all the most expensieve ski-equipement and goes on the snow only for posing like someone who’s skiing.
        I like the expression “ski-bunny”

      • janie says:

        I think it’s so odd because she has never had that many clothes on in her entire life. She doesn’t know how to pose in clothing.

      • Meaghan says:

        Theyre loaded and spend tons of money looking good, she puts in effort going to the gym so I don’t see this as any different then their usual materialistic conceited behaviour.

        I think to them, spending 26k on ski clothes would be the same (financially) as me buying ski pants and renting a board. I’ve only ever gone snowboarding once in my whole life, but when I went I went to Whistler (The Aspen of Canada). I didn’t go to a small hill, I went to where the best skiing is. (I ended up going down the hill with all those bumps because I am the worst at maps and took a wrong turn)
        I hate Kim and Kanye, but I can’t hate on them because at least she is actually skiing and not wandering around shopping the whole time. If they went to Aspen and just shopped people would be complaining about that too.

    • Frenzy says:

      I’m a Coloradan too and I never skied. Never even tried its just not my thing.

    • Nerd Alert says:

      Do you ever drive to Aspen for a day between Xmas and New Years just to catch the celebrity mess? I love snowboarding and won’t pay Aspen prices, but my best friend and I used to drive down on winter break to watch the Kimyes and Hiltons fall on their asses from the lodge. Such fun!

    • Decloo says:

      It shouldn’t be very hard for Kim to learn because, like a toddler, she’s quite low to the ground.

    • Gistine says:

      Yep. I live in a ski town as well and see plenty of gapers dressed to the nines that can barely do a wedge. She looks about as alpine inclined as a turtle. What an affront to skiing!

    • Megan says:

      as a native Utahan let me just second this post.

      Real skiers don’t wear fur coats on the slopes! Or stand like this in their skies.

  2. BooBooLaRue says:

    Good at skiing? NO! Good at the après-ski look? YES!

  3. MonicaQ says:

    Not going to lie, I’d be dressed like Kanye. I’m from Florida. It’s 62 degrees out and everyone is in sweat shirts in my office.

    Beiber or Cyrus would be worse neighbors. Those two are so far each other’s asses they’re like an Ouroboros‎ of self felicitation so they’d have no time to bother anyone else.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    My boss just told me that he was staying at the hotel right next to them and he was bummed he didn’t get to see them.
    I was like “Who cares? I don’t even want to see these people on TV, much less in real life.”

    Also, when will these morons stop wearing dead animal? They look fucking ridiculous. I bet real skiers were laughing at them.

  5. Spooks says:

    After what happened to Schumacher, I don’t think I’ll be skiing for a while.

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Hahaha! These made me laugh, too. Her tiny pinhead sticking out of all that fur, the look of wtf on her face, Kanye’s “disguise.” Ha!

  7. Sayrah says:

    I get the giggles at the mere idea of Kanye skiing too.

  8. Snugg says:

    They are in deer valley (park city) Utah, not aspen. We saw them at dinner at the st Regis deer valley two nights ago and at the montage yesterday.

  9. littlestar says:

    I wonder if Kanye knows how to ski? Apparently Robert Kardashian used to take all of them to Aspen (I think) to ski, so maybe Kim kinda knows how to ski? I would like to see a shot of her coming down an actual slope so I can better judge whether she knows how to ski or not lol.

    Anyway, I would love to be skiing right now. I used to go often but now that I moved further away from the mountains, it’s maybe a once a year treat to make it out to Banff or Jasper to ski :( . Damn Kim and Kanye for being able to go over New Years >:|.

    P.S. I’m surprised Kanye isn’t wearing jeans. He seems like he’d be one of those skiers who’d wear jeans on the hill ha.

  10. HH says:

    Will someone tell this “creative genius” that disguises are both useless and stupid if the company you keep gives away your identity?

  11. Carebearvancouver says:

    Did she have to buy special needs ass friendly ski pants? Where do you buy these? If she ever comes to Whistler I would definately spray snow all over her face !

  12. Dani says:

    How annoying for other guest, the slopes loitered with paps.

  13. Dreamyk says:

    I wasn’t aware that people still used poles to ski. My daughter learned how without them.

    Also..what in hell is wrong with her face? I mean that sincerely. It’s like it’s inanimate.

  14. prissa says:

    Kourtney is 5 feet. Kim is 5’3″. How does she look so much more huge than Kourt? And Kanye just looks all types of a fool. The whole Klan is laughable.

  15. Bex says:

    I’m shocked she’s not stuffed into special second skin leggings but went with actual ski pants. I think they flatter her better to balance out her backside.

    Kanye just gives me the giggles.

  16. Evelyn Apricots says:

    She always looks like she is wearing a dirty, wet diaper from behind.

  17. Flora Kitty says:

    Kim looks like she posing as a ski bunny. I have never been skiing, but Kourtney looks more appropriate, but still bunnyish.

  18. Frenzy says:

    I saw some photos of them having s’mores and that for me was more hilarious. Empty stroller was there of course and if the baby was really inside then I feel sorry for North because Kim was more interested in holding her purse and camera than her! Geez a purse by the fire pit there is just no end to Kim’s vapidness and narcissism. I won’t be surprised if they left seaweed in LA and that stroller was just for show which means fame wh*** is dying without the attention! Also they wear winter coats in 80 degree LA weather then wear thin sweaters and Timberlands and MC Hammer pants in Utah SMH …

  19. Dimebox says:

    Kanye’s mask of doom would be even better if it was covered with rhinestones like the one he has worn in his shows…Mr. Badass does the mountains. And I am imagining Kim falling and her awful nasal whine complaining about the cold white stuff. “Honey, let’s just go pose in the bar, okay? This is too hard, and it’s cold!”

  20. Nicolette says:

    She looks like some kind of hairy spider. Would’ve loved it if someone pinged her in the head with a snowball, it might have evoked a human reaction from her.

  21. Pdaws says:

    She really should be wearing a helmet, but I guess it would mess up her hair

  22. meme says:

    Life is one big photo op for these morons. I’d rather hang with the Duck people

  23. Dotty says:

    I imagine the temps would freeze the fillers in her face.

  24. DTX says:

    LOLLOLOLOL! Haaaaaahaaaa

    Kanye is disguised as a MOSQUITO!!!!

    I’m going to laugh all day! Thanks, Kaiser!

  25. Maureen says:

    I don’t think she can ski. I don’t think there’s anything Kim Kardashian can do. I honestly don’t think there’s anything she’s good at.

  26. Meggin says:

    Omg her face is starting to look freakish from so much Botox and surgery!! Lol I agree they wouldn’t be the worst neighbors though. Justin bieber or miley cyrus definitely!

  27. swack says:

    My question (and I haven’t skied but would love to do so) is why does she have the goggles and not using them. Just screams of PR stunt. Sun reflecting off of snow is really harsh.

  28. Palermo says:

    Where are their helmets? Does anybody believe they actually did any skiing or just a whole lot of posing. That guy looks way too tall to be Kanye

  29. Loren says:

    In the third picture it looks like she’s farting. Or her diaper is full.

  30. P.J. says:

    I actually agree with Kaiser-at least partly-on the whole “bad neighbors” thing.

    I’m no Kardashian supporter, but even I know that no one has ever come out publicly to say a bad word about Kim’s treatment of others. You never hear about any diva antics or attitude coming from her at ALL. In fact, it always seems to be the exact opposite; I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read about what a totally soft spoken, kind, and always polite “sweetheart” she is from restaurant/store/charity employees (“sources”) in magazines/interviews. Also, she’d always be off somewhere traveling so you’d hardly ever see her anyway! I’d love to be her neighbor :) Why not?

    Kanye on the other hand…UGH. I imagine he’d constantly behave like a crazy, curmudgeonly lunatic always ranting or raving about something or other or calling the cops on you… Pass!

    • idk says:

      I have seen Kim act like a major diva on their show many times. Her sisters are always calling her out on her attitude and even her mom has a few times as well. I am sure in real life she is nice to people who MATTER. With regards to having them as neighbors, I don’t think Kim will be doing much more travelling now that she isn’t really “working” anymore. Kanye would probably come knock on your door and tell you how you’re lawn isn’t as good as his lawn or how your house isn’t as nice as his house and how you should be honored to be living next door to a God.

      • Maureen says:

        I agree. I do not think Kim is a nice person. I think the manners and “sweetness” that she displays in public are all part of her manufactured “kitten” persona. It goes along with the baby voice and the face that is frozen in one non-threatening expression. An expressionless expression — that’s what I call it. But she’s not nice. The perceived niceness is a calculated act.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I can see Kanye ranting that your bushes are throwing off his genius.

  31. kellyinseattle says:

    I d be mors interested if it wa a iston I. The cold weather rather than sunning…where s baby north all the time?

  32. Dommy Dearest says:

    And let it be known that ye sweat pants can contain all ye ass of Kamel Kim.

    Why are there photographers in Aspen? I’d be pissed if I had to hang out all day in the cold photographing the minions of Hell.

  33. Whoop says:

    Stupid bitch is going to go snow blind is she doesn’t put her goggles on. I guess she has to show her rubber face for the cameras. Ruuuuuuubbbbbbbbeeeerrrrrr Face!

  34. wheezy says:

    Ummm where did her butt go? Seriously. And she looks like a fool.

  35. lisa says:

    i guess she has to be a mouth breather now that she doesnt have a nose

  36. Skye says:

    If any of you TREES would like to voice your feelings about all the paper used for Yeezy/Kardashian mag covers….AHEM. Here’s your moment.

  37. Stormsmama says:

    In this day and age
    To not wear a helmet…???!!!!
    I just can’t with them

  38. jwoolman says:

    I wouldn’t mind the Honey Boo Boo family as neighbors, don’t know why they were considered bad neighbors on that list . They all seem nice to each other and others, a tolerant bunch. Those traits usually make for good neighbors. Don’t know about Kim (although remembering poor Mercy, I might fear for my cats), but Kanye is such a control freak that he might be more of a problem. Who knows? No chance of them moving into my neighborhood, though. The Honey Boo Boos are more our speed.

  39. Noinin says:

    Ok, why didn’t she learn how to ski before posing for the paps? I’m pretty sure she could have gotten private lessons. Most luxury ski resorts have some slopes that are designed for rich people to learn how to ski without embarassing themselves in quiet areas.
    Also, it’s a shame she ruined her face like that. She was genuinely pretty when she was a child and a teenager, and even before Ray J peed on her. Now… her face looks sooo uncomfortably tight.
    And her ass doesn’t look good. It doesn’t even look firm or… how do you say in English… perky? I heard that when some people got fat injected into their asses it tended to migrate after a while, and it looks like it’s just what’s happening now, the fat is slowly migrating to her upper thighs.

  40. Poppy says:

    I think they’re all morons for not wearing helmets. That’s my only comment on this!

  41. Kiyoshigirl says:

    Ugh. I’d be boiling within 10 minutes if I had that bulky, fur collared coat on. You need layers, upon layers so you can shed them as your body temperature rises and falls. Typical snow bunny poser.

  42. TherapyCranes says:

    I was raised in Whistler, Canada. I knew people who hated tourists/skibunnies. My father made all his money off of the tourism trade so I came to appreciate and welcome the tourist season. It’s really how Whistler makes its money. Why would I be upset? Come spend your thousands of dollars to ski once.

  43. Lia B says:

    you can tell by the way Kim Kard-Ass-ian is barely holding herself up on her skis she doesn’t have a clue how to use them – also the skis are short, very wide, obviously training skis given to children who are just learning. Your skis should be as tall as you. Beginner skis are always wider than the average ski to allow easier gliding over bumpy surfaces. I’m surprised she isn’t wearing a helmut though, it kinda sends the wrong message to her rag-tag group of worshippers. Everyone should wear a helmet – you hit a patch of ice – bam – your gone and have no control over your direction.

  44. Sally says:

    That is not even Aspen, idiot.

  45. Terri says:

    I guess Aspen mountain ran out of ski passes so they had to borrow some from Deer Valley!

  46. Redspide says:

    I think that best part about this is that they we’re skiing in Deer Valley, Utah not Aspen… Awkward. Get your shit straight before you post an article about it.

  47. Skalula says:

    I have no particular fondness for Kardashians, but they can ski. You can google it if you don’t believe it, but you can tell they are reasonably comfortable on skis. I would venture a guess that many people raised with money learned to ski as children.
