Bucket List: Skiing's Spring Break | Season Pass Ep. 3
There’s a lot of things to love about skiing in the Springtime. Longer days, warmer temps, “Hero” snow that can make any skier feel like a pro; and of course, those epic après parties that stretch deep into the afternoon sun. But the most the quintessential Springtime skiing ritual ever devised has to be– the pond skim. While no one knows for sure where and when the first pond skim took place, we do know that fun-loving skiers and riders have been trying – and usually failing – to cross pools of icy water since at least the early 70s. Pull in a professional film crew and this head-scratching tradition gets even crazier. The folks in Rockies may not have invented skiing’s version of Spring Break, but they may just have perfected it. We’ll check out all the action from Steamboat to Vail to an annual locals only bash in Eldora. Proving that you don’t need a beach to have “Spring Break”; and that it’s never not funny watching people eat it over-and-over again – especially when it’s in slow motion.
