Well-known Breckenridge Ski Resort ‘smoke shack’ destroyed
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — A “smoke shack” at Breckenridge Ski Resort that was featured in a recent national story has been destroyed.
Smoke shacks are places with locations that are kept under wraps. They are places where skiers and snowboarders go to smoke pot, and maybe leave a carving in a log as a symbol of their visit.
According to Westword, “Leo’s Smoke Shack” at Breckenridge was destroyed after the report on Inside Edition was broadcast.
The video below from YouTube shows a trip to the smoke shack before its destruction.
Breckenridge Resort says if personnel find other smoke shacks, they’ll be destroyed as well.
Leo’s was known for its large size. It had two stories according to information on the Leo’s Rebuild Project Facebook page. The page was started after the shack was destroyed.
A spokesman from Vail Resorts, which owns Breckenridge, says the company has a zero-tolerance policy for such structures on its mountains. The smoke shacks are often built on National Forest Service land at ski areas.
Smoking marijuana on federal land at a ski area in Colorado remains illegal.
