Hand up. I love asking late night questions on Facebook to our followers. It’s waaaaay too much fun, and it drives engagement to our page. It’s a win-win all around honestly.
There’s something about people on Facebook after 9pm that just hits different, ya know? I don’t know if it’s because the booze and drugs have been flowing or what, but you get a different level of honesty out of people in the late night hours.
So, I decided to ask our followers: ‘What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen at a ski lodge?’ and it didn’t disappoint.

^When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Martha F: “Cameron Diaz & Justin Timberlake in Vail at Wildwood Lodge during a blizzard. She was very nice; he wasn’t. (They were great boarders)”
^I would have told JT that was I was the best skier on the mountain. Missed opportunity, Martha.
James L: “Mi**et wrestling, during reggae weekend, while tripping on Mushrooms…And it all really happened, I was shown video evidence when I questioned if it really happened the next day…”
^This one speaks for itself. I honestly can’t think of anything funny to add to this story. Sounds like this guy had the night of his life.
Jack S: “In the late 80’s. Jack Frost in the Poconos had Wet T-shirt contests with a band sponsored by Coors Light!”
^What’s the over-under on how much cocaine was ingested at this event? I’m gonna do with 10 pounds.
Thomas F: “I’m using a free lift ticket at Vail compliments of Outside magazine. Next a group of streakers on skis with about 10 guys and one girl on a sunny March day cruising down the mountain.”
^Sick humble brag, Thomas. We get it. You were skiing for free and saw some boobs. Your life must be soooooooooo awesome…
Robert D: “Shroom Tea being served to the guests.”
^”Sweetie, this tea is making me feel a little bit funny. Since when did your face have 6 eyeballs?”
Patrick D: “Furniture races at Bogus Basin, Idaho 1980’s. It was all fun and games until an out of control couch ran over some pedestrians riding the rope tow.”
^How everything fun ends in this country. Lawsuits.
Patrick O: “Involves a ski pole, a hot pickle and lots of wax”
^I kind of want to know more, but I also don’t?
Jared K “You’ll have to ask Shit-on-the-floor Dan.”
^Dan…what the hell did you do?! Did you shit on the floor?! Dan?!?!
Tamara S: “Shooting fireworks naked”
^Nothing better than explosives and exposed genitalia. What could go wrong?
Jarron B: “A porn shoot in the gondola”
^I mean you gotta film that stuff somewhere, right?
John S: “A new skier coming through the lodge window at Wilmot Mountain around 1997ish.”

^I’m sorry, but I need to see this ASAP.
Mike C: “Leftover Salmon playing the Alpine Meadows lodge. People eating mushrooms and burning fatties while dancing on tables.”
