Video: Inside Edition smoke-shack parody finds shocking proof of drinking at ski areas!

We recently shared an Inside Edition report about smoke shacks at ski areas -- after which personnel at Breckenridge destroyed Leo's Smoke Shack, which had been featured in hidden-camera footage. But while Leo's is gone, its spirit lives in a hilarious parody put together by photog Arthur Balluff and a Colorado crew. The clip mocks IE's hysterical warnings about the dangers of stoned skiers by revealing there are places at resorts where people drink alcohol and then get right back on the slopes! The laughs are served up below, along with the original Inside Edition piece.
