More than 300 happy WAKA people hit the slopes to ski and play in Jay Peak, Vermont, last weekend. With perfect weather, impromptu parties, and a giant indoor water park, it was just about as good as it gets.

Among the attendees from all over WAKA Nation, were two of WAKA’s Co- Founders, Jimmy Walicek and Johnny Lehane, and a big group of players who chartered a party bus from Boston.
