Pond Skimming


Date: Mar 29 2015

Note, Pond Skimming was originally scheduled for Saturday but the weather looks better on Sunday so we pushed it back a day to March 29.

Pond Skimming returns with a vengeance. After a year away, our man-made pond is extra hungry for ambitious skiers and riders. Can you make it across in dryish fashion? The biggest party of the season is back folks. 

We'll be awarding a 2015-16 All Access Sesaon Pass to one adult and one youth winner. Each winner needs to have an outstanding costume and a solid skim. For those who don't care to skim, come spectate! There will be great music and even better splashes.

The Theme: Each year we designate a theme for the event to guide in your costume choice. This year Champ from the Vermont Lake Monsters will make an appearance at Pond Skimming so our theme will be Monsters. 

The Lowdown: The entry fee is just $5 per skimmer. You must have a lift ticket or season pass to enter. Skimmers may only use skis or boards to attempt to skim the pond, sorry no sleds, jack jumpers or anything else that is not a pair of skis or snowboard. Bolton Valley rental or lease equipment may not be used to skim the pond. All skimmers will go in bib order.  

Schedule:

10am - Noon: Registration in the Base Lodge 
1pm: Skimming begins!
3pm (or shortly after the skimming is competed): Awards
