The 4th 2nd Annual Frank Ski Competition had all the elements of the rock n’ roll lifestyle that was hot-dog skiing in the 80s. Tight pants, mule kicks, inverted debauchery and sunny skies made for an epic competition. We saw 2 skiers cruise the course in tandem, crotch to crotch and it was fabulous.
McConkey style switch fronts were thrown. Naked skiers took zipper bump lines. Ski ballet was even performed on the upper bowl. The skiers who participated truly killed it this year. Several huge kickers were built, with a tall quarter pipe and a tunnel. Twas quite the sight to see. Don’t miss it next year!
