/>While many resorts host a ski across the pond race on their closing weekend, Monarch ups with ante with a kayak race down the slopes that ends with a plunge into an icy pond. Check out the video from this year's event, shot by a local Salida TV station. I like the guy who does one bounce out of the pond and clears the protective barriers, but seeing people flip into the pond is pretty amusing too.
