    Kayaks on Snow

    I watched a fun end of season event yesterday called Kayaks on Snow at Monarch Mountain. It's like a sledding race in kayaks with a water finish. They did an elimination tournament all afternoon yesterday. Pretty entertaining and made me glad for sealed gear!

    WOW! What a fun looking event. I've never seen anything like this, thanks for sharing.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Cool event. Like the pond skim they have at my mountain. Except they use skis/snowboards.

    Thanks guys. I always like to catch the oddball events for some reason and this is definitely one of the odder ones!
    Armondo, yes I was super lucky with that water drop shot. Probably couldn't have planned it better!
