A little bizarre skiing tradition in Russia, where else? (41 Photos)

  • CalgaryAl

    Russia is way behind on this one. At Sunshine Village resort in Alberta Canada, they've been hold "Sluch Cup" for well over 25 years on the last day of the season.
    Fail for anyone who thought russia did it first.

    Funny, even Russa is in love with American pop culture.

    I am pretty sure anywhere that snow/ski mountains are popular they have this event.
    In Banff Canada, may long weekend they do the slush cup at sunshine.
    Same thing.

    We do this in Canada every year at the end of the season as well. Tis called slush cup… not to strange you can find a ton of links on youtube if you type in slush cup

    Love it! Great costumes! I think some of the skiiers at A-basin and Winter Park every year will have to step up thier game a little next year.
