I know that the weather in the Mid-Atlantic, as well as many other parts of the country, have been more spring (almost summer-like) than winter, but when I saw Ratatouille ripping up the slopes on his tiny snowboard I couldn’t resist posting his video.
The video was shot as a spur of the moment event when Ratatouille came to visit Liberty Mountain in Pennsylvania earlier this month. Wearing his little stripped sweater and proudly displaying his own season pass, the opossum takes to his Burton Riglet Snowboard and hits the slopes. He is shown sliding gracefully along the groomed trail, using his tail for balance and directional control. The video took about 30 minutes to shoot, but has turned out to be a huge attention-getter for the resort, going viral with almost a million viewings in slightly less than two weeks. ”What was just a bit of end-of-season fun has certainly gotten a lot of attention. We are happy we have made so many people smile!” Liberty’s marketing director Anne Weimer said of the video’s popularity.
