Bismarck, North Dakota broke its all-time snow record April 14, 2013. We decided to go out and enjoy the nearly two feet of fresh powder. We invented a new sport. Snow kayaking. The best part was heading downhill...dragging the kayak back up was less fun. It was a day we will always remember. Record snowfall for Bismarck. Records go back to 1875 and we received nearly two feet of snow at a rate of one inch an hour all day April, 14, 2013.
