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

Video below.
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.

Ha! Serves you morons right! Keep bragging about you smoking weed while driving, snow sporting, or any way else that is illegal and you will ruin it for everyone! If you keep your mouths shut, you keep your shack....loose lips sink ships a-holes! If you hit me on the slopes when you're stoned or drunk, I'm going to sue you so hard, you'll never afford a bag of weed again!

What a bunch of dicks. This senseless destruction of the smoke shack accomplished exactly nothing.

The first rule of smoke shacks is you don't take camera crew to smoke shacks.

OK, so if we are going to blow up smoke shacks to keep stoners off the slopes, isn't it time to start blowing up bars that are putting drunks on the road?  Drunks on the road seem to be causing lots of problems.  See your local news for more information.

This is hysterical. Sorry folks, I know there are exceptions, but pot smokers aren't known for their brilliant critical thinking. They sat there smoking away in front of TV cameras for a national TV show on property where it's illegal to smoke pot.

Where do you think Inside Edition found out about these? They do what every other journalist does now - googled shit - and they probably happened upon Westword's coverage. Irony at its finest...

I revised my comment Westword, plz don't delete...Its going to a long journey. We must have freedom fighters or ALL of our rights will be stripped away. We must UNITE as one, and stand up for ourselves; united we stand divided we fall. Live free or die! The only way to deal with an un-free world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

I'm pretty sure DRUNK snowboarders and skiers pose a greater threat, yet there are plenty of locations to drink in plain sight. These guys suck at snowboarding, marijuana did not contribute to the fact they can't control their edges. Inside Edition just lost any respect I had for them with their one-sided and propaganda-filled reporting. PLEASE NEVER COME BACK TO COLORADO.

I heard the explosion was actually a Texan's head exploding the first time he tried the weed joints.

im on mountain RIGHT NOW, building a better, more secluded and industrialized smoke shack. One complete with an outhouse, swing set and zipline.

You're not the only person who feels that way, Samuel. Thanks for weighing in.

Inside Edition set up hidden cameras at Leo's, so they probably weren't invited -- and they probably won't be asked to hang out at other smoke shacks in the future. Thanks for posting, Ben.

@kadargo  Love the post, kadargo. We're going to feature it as an upcoming Comment of the Day. Thanks.

@michael.roberts  Thanks.  It makes little sense to me that efforts like this are going on while the other legal recreational drug, alcohol, seems to be causing most of the problems.  See your local news for more information.  :)

@kadargo @michael.roberts  Ha! Look over here! Not over there! Nice tactic, skiing/boarding impaired is illegal, you hit someone and hurt them, it's a felony in CO. Hit me on the slopes? I'll make damn sure you you never hit anyone again, especially if you're impaired!
