I would guess that many of the 2,000 people that participated in the Copper Mountain Ski Resort Tomato Battle on Saturday have never even heard of the great cult classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. But their tomato toss wasn't intended to take over the world. It just gave the partiers a good excuse to drink beer and get dirty while throwing 300,000 pounds of over-ripe tomatoes at each other.
My husband is an avid skier, so we have seen many crazy events held at ski resorts around the country. But this is one I'm glad I missed!
But if you are looking for something to browse through while eating your lunch, check out this slideshow of the Tomato Battle at Copper Mountain on Westword.com.
Note: According to the Tomato Battle website, all of the tomatoes thrown were overripe and would be thrown away, anyway.
