This Epic Drinking Game Will Make Any Ski or Snowboard Film Better

We strongly recommend that nobody ever actually plays this game. Bad things would happen.

Ski and snowboard movies are great, but it’s fair to say that they normally follow a pretty predictable formula.

There are some things that are almost guaranteed to happen in any snow-based epic that you watch. So, next time you break out a shred-heavy feature, get a couple (hundred) beers out with it and give this game a shot.

Disclaimer: Mpora takes no responsibly for any health problems that arise from this game, nor for any stupid shit that participants get up to after/if they manage to complete it.

Do not play this game if:

a) You are pregnant or have a history of health problems

b) You do not have a limitless stash of beer

c) You have any common sense whatsoever
