DMSki 2016: Our Biggest Ski Trip Yet

Since 2011, we have made it a tradition to take an annual ski trip out west to Colorado. This year, since the trip was so popular, we have decided to introduce the ski trip as our first Yearly Office Event (YOE).

That’s just a bit chillier than our usual deck activity temperatures, but we thought we’d make the most of the blustery cold and have some fun. In the video below, a pitcher of boiling hot water is thrown into the air and instantly turns into a cloud of “snow” that’s quickly blown away. Why does it happen?
