The Pond Skim, Slush Cup, Water Ride… Call it what you like, pond skimming at ski resorts is a spring tradition that dates back decades. For the uninitiated, pond skimming involves brave skiers and snowboarders attempting to cross a long, cold, often slush-filled pond; the objective being to make it to the other side without getting wet. Some achieve this objective, but the majority do not. And therein lies the entertainment value inherent in pond skimming. Check out the events calendar at your local resort or organize your own!
Here is a freshly released video of the Pond Skim 2014 at Big Sky Resort, Montana, USA.
