Pond Skimming Contest

Skim across Gore’s Mountain’s huge pond in their annual spring classic- this Saturday! (April 7)

Get goofy, get wet, and have fun!

Each participant gets one splash. There will be a Costume Judge- the most important of all!  DRESS UP!  There will also be a judge for splash, a judge for Skim Distance, and a judge for Overall Performance.  Costume scores will break any ties, followed by Overall Performance, Splash, & then Skim Distance.

HELMETS are required.  A completed release form is required for all participants.  Print in advance, or complete your release when you get here.  Kids- be sure to have your parents sign!  Ski poles are not permitted during your run.  You can access the Sunway Chair to get to the top of the course, to minimize your time without poles on the slopes if you wish.

Karaoke on the Sundeck to follow!
