    Please find that rock from which you crawled out and tuck yourself right back in there. Or maybe find someone to give you a hug. KCCO

    "Russia. where else?"…Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, etc. I just saw one of these comps at Stevens Pass outside Seattle a few weeks ago.

    FYI – we do this in Tremblant, QC, Canada every year. It's called the Caribou Cup, and involves skiing down the face of the mountain, over the water and running through Tremblant village while stopping at every bar to take a shot. Fastest time wins. FUCK YA!

    This is done at every ski resort, everywhere. In Canada it's done at the end of May.

    This isnt anything new 😛 called a slush cup here in Canada. We do this every year at the end of a season!

    Mount Snow, VT has this to wrap up their Reggae Fest every year…such an awesome event to watch…and when you're an intern for the marketing/events team you get shoved into the pond (womp womp).

    this isn't a russian tradition at all. in fact i am pretty sure they got the tradition from the U.S.. every big resort out west does this; from the lives of vail to jackson hole. it's called pond skimming and it is a helluva blast!!

    Dear Bob, this is not just a Russian tradition. Pond Skims happen all over Colorado, generally on the closing day of the season. You must now do another post on crazy US Pond Skims to redeem the odd ball ski bums in 'MERICA.
