Video: Watch Leo's Smoke Shack explode after ski area marks it for destruction

Inside Edition's hysterical report about ski-area smoke shacks -- a phenomenon our William Breathes has been covering for years -- was quickly followed by the destruction of Leo's Smoke Shack in Breckenridge, the most elaborate structure featured in the IE piece.

Although a ski-area rep who spoke to us about Vail Resorts' ongoing war against smoke shacks confirmed this action, he didn't tell us how it was done. But now we know: We found a video of Leo's being blown up in spectacular fashion. See the clip below.
